Thread Starter 
i wanna get a whole new rig..including monitor. i'm not going to even attempt to build it myself and have moved so i dont have friends to build it for me. what is my next best way of going about this? dare i even venture to dell.com? where can i get the most bang for my buck? i want a gaming machine..any general ideas?

How much are you looking to spend? Check out Falcon NorthWest, Voodoopc, Alienware (now part of dell ).

honestly..i need some advice..im an athlon guy so far..but want to switch to intel..looks like the duel core is the way to go..i just want a rig that'll run the new Flight Simulator X smoothly on full options and with a lot of 3rd party software running which adds even more strain by adding things like traffic to the program. i know DX10 is comin soon..anyone know a approx date btw? but i'm looking to upgrade now and worry about a new graphics card later

lookin to spend hopefully less than 1000 but can go to 1200 if needed

Ibuypower.com is a really good place, and some come with free watercooling.
