By spending money with those overpriced retailers/builders just encourages them, don't do it.

He wants someone reputable along with a possible 1yr Warranty which is understandable.

I've linked him to a good amount of digital storm pre-built computers.

just to clarify some of your questions:

I do live in the US, not Canada

I own a 27" Dell U2711 monitor, so no need for a monitor

Don't know of any local reputable computer shops here in Chicago

In that case, why not get someone local from here in Chicago to help you out...either show you how to build it or build it for you and then you guys can do a local deal. That way you don;t have to get it prebuilt and save yourself a ton of money.

It seems that OP is really set on buying a prebuilt, so let's just give him a prebuilt computer and stop trying to sway him, it's his money and let's let him decide what to do with it.

OP, this rig is fairly decent for the price, it gets you a 2600K and a GTX 580 with 8GB of RAM (just pick it in the configurator) for $1,000.

You'll want more RAM and an SSD. 2600k will help, obviously.

Yeah, I like the idea of being to just order it this weekend having it shipped ready to go/enjoy. Having to find someone I've never dealt with/heard of here in the city just doesn't sound as appealing. If something goes wrong, I know the components themselves have warranties but would like to have one source to be able to contact. It looks like most of these places have 1-3 year warranties as well, so that peace of mind is worth it to me I think.
