Well, Compaq cannot sell a product without the attraction of some fluorescent light for some reason :-/. Dell is just....foxconn-ish. And HP CAN be good sometimes.

DarkBlade is BY FAR the best brand, aka, built by my company! Well.. if we are talking major brands.. then the newer AMD Athlon64 xPress200 eMachines are VERY GOOD.

eMachines are HORRIBLE if you are getting a home PC but some turn out to be the best of the best!

Actually, this model of emachines is quite good. I have used this one at best buy, and was really impressed with it. Full 16x upgradable PCIe slot inside and 1GB of PC3200 RAM and 3400+ processor with the Radeon xPress IGP Chipset which can play many medium level games decently out of the box.

Here it is:

Not bad by my standard guys, it is worth a pickup if u want a cheap AMD 64 based system for basic gaming and internet browsing. A 6600GT would make it scream!

I say gateway. Mine came with an amd 3500+ 64 cpu, a free x16 pic e slot, and a nice dvd burner and the such. I've upgraded it since (see my sig) and made it to quite a monster... lol.

Well, last time I checked, Gateways were mega expensive. I have to go with Sony just because of my loyalty to the brand and how sexy they look. And yes, Sony is expensive, too, but I love them sooooo much! Haha. Half the electronic equipment I own is Sony:

Vaio laptop
home theater receiver
5-disc CD player
VCR
CD-ROM drive
even a Sony car power adapter and tape converter!

I'm currently keeping my eyes open for a Sony digital camera and LCD monitor. Their newest LCDs are hot! Their monitors before that were nice, too, but lacked a lot of features that should have been there. Anyway, SONY!
