hmm i think sony would be the best out of those but the most expensive..you may want to look into the Compaq XGaming PC or Dell XPS tho.

Out of all those brands. Get the Dell XPS if you really want a gaming computer. Sony VAIO's are nice, but expensive. Dell's have gotten alot better, but customer service still remains the same (unfortunately). HP (which bought out Compaq) is pretty nice, they offer nice solutions at a good price.

For graphics cards, if you have the money, get the fastest of em' all. The nVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX. If not, anything under that is pretty good for the price, especially the nVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT and the ATI Radeon X800 XL.
