Thanks

I'd probably go with Dell, but the more expensive ones. The cheap ones are crap.

uh, do u have a budget? I'd either get the Dell XMS or something edition. The gamers edition one.

But if u got big bucks and a big head, i'd get an alienware.

Gateway is okay. Dell is nice, but be careful, they tend to have bad quality.

Alienware (expensive), ibuypower (lots of bang for your buck), monarch computer systems (great custom and pre-built comps).
Dell has ok comps, but really bad customer service. HP has pretty nice comps, but they fill it up with pre-loaded junk.
