wrong section. click thread tools at the top. then go down to move thread, and move it to general software and hardware.
edit:celegorm moved it but you can do it urself, just a tip

2ndly stick with a desktop as it will be much better gaming wise, forget any laptop ideas. 3rdly whats your currency?

Moved to correct Section.

Honestly, if you want a good gamming computer for $1000, you will need to build it yourself. YOu could get a main-stream company comptuer (like dell or HP) but you won't get the customability and price/performance ratio that you would by building yourself.

If that's not something you are interested in trying let us know and we'll look around @ all the manufacturer sites for you.

If you don't need portability, why would you get a laptop? Instead, build your own desktop. My brother bought an eMachines PC for gaming, then had to upgrade from the integrated to a real graphics card, but his PC only had PCI slots, so he could only go so far with that. He now owns Oblivion, but can't play it due to the limitations of his mobo.
