Personally, I would recommend configuring your own computer. I WAS going to buy through dell, gateway, compaq, etc. But then I realized that I can get all of the stuff in one of those computers for half of the price. Plus, I just like to tinker with computers. It is more work, but you will know more about your computer, and save money in the process.

I agree. That or look for a small company without a logo that they can charge an extra $400 for.

What ever you do, if you expect to do ANY gaming stay away from integrated video, and good luck! A configuration I could offer you and the price is below:

80GB Serial ATA 7200RPM Hard Drive w/8MB Buffer

you say that you can offer him a configuration and then
you say that all warranties must be carried through "US" , just curious who us is.

or just order the parts yourself. But personally some of the little comapnies we are talking about seem just a lil shady to me. I would rather go big comp. Or find a good little one, not just some link of the internet. or build.

My call for shady, is if they have a phone number and if you call it, and they pickup quickly or you leave a message and they return the call quickly. Remember if you pay by credit card almost all credit cards nowadays have no liability for online purchase. I know my with my visa, I've had to do dispute a charge once and all it took was an easy 10 minute phone call. But yeah, if you feel comfortable building it and have the time, definatly the best way to go, especially with forums like this one to help ya out.
