Why don't you go to the website of a computer dealer in your area, they should have a link to custom build your PC and get the bottom price.
First you start with the motherboard, here is what I would suggest:
ASUS P5G-D2 motherboard
1024MB DDR-2 533Mhz RAM
Maxtor 200GB 7200RPM 8MB ATA133 hard disk
Sapphire Radeon X600PRO 256MB PCI-X video card
19" BenQ FP931D LCD 1280x1024 .25MS .29 Blk/Sil
LG - Combo CDRW/DVD 52x 32x 52x + 16x DVD
Pioneer 109 16x DVD±RW 4X± DL DVD burner
Logitech MX1000 Cordless Mouse Fast RF-MX Laser
Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop Pro 2.0 Keyboard
Raidmax Cobra Mid Tower Case 420W
Enermax - EG465P-VE 430 Watt ATX Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS - Retail Box sound card
Logitech X-620 6.1 speakers
Software: Windows XP Pro SP2, Nero, Norton A/V, Pinnacle Express, ,,,,free software {DVDShrink, VLC media player, Adobe Acrobat Reader and all other goodies others may suggest.

Oops, forgot the most important part, the processor
Intel P4 3.4G 1MB (550) 800FSB LGA775.
I'm not sure how it will mount but you should be close to $2000
If you find a site, plug in the components I suggested and let me know how much it mounts.

no! not alienware! i could build with the same money a comp 10x's better! never! yes, amd is the way to go. get an amd 3400+ or fx (if u have the money) and ballistix 1 gb ram, 2 things of raid, most likely somewhere near like 168 gb (im tired right now) a 6800 ultra nvidia graphics card, an audidy z sound card, double layer dvd burner, dvd drive (make sure its optical), and a nice 17" or 19" monitor. dont forget the keyboard and mouse. and speakers. the logitech z 680's are the sweetest around that ive heard. ur all set!
