Default Looking for a gaming computer under 1000$

I really don't know too much about computers, i know that I like to play games on them (;

But can anybody link me some "pre-built" computers for under 1000$?

I don't want to build my own, atleast not for a couple more years. Any help would be appreciated.


I've been looking on pricewatch but i can't seem to find anything.

Thanks

It looks good to me, also i dont need a monitor so its under budget (;

One question i looked at the specs and it says the video card is overclocked? What's that mean?

Also is there anyway you can find one that will ship to Cananda?

Overclocked means the settings are running faster than stock speeds. So, say its stock is 500, and the advertisement is 550, its overclocked at 550 from 500.

Shipping to canada? Well in Canadian, its a bit over 1000

Here is another setup...

That one has a decent graphics card for medium settings on most games.
