Well i hope this don't get deleted because its not about a specific game. I am just looking for a computer that would be used for gaming & browsing the internet. Ever since i started using computers back when i was like 13 i always had something that would just browse and nothing else. Right now i have an emachine with 1400MB of ram (ya i know) but it browses fine just would never be able to play a game. what should i look for when i buy a pc?? what is needed to be able to play games nowadays RAM,Graphics?? im totally lost.. any help would be great

Quad core cpu, 4 gigs ddr3 (minimum), dx11 graphics card, Nvidia gtx460 or AMD 6870. 1 Terabyte storage, 22" monitor (minimum). Building yourself would cost around 600 bucks usd, I am assuming you are from the US, BOSTONBrian.

^That. Except I think that a bit more flexibility with the hard drive and monitor is possible, though; depending on how you use it, anything from 19"+ for the monitor and maybe even 320GB+ for the hard drive.

It would be helpful for us to get an estimate of how much you have or are willing to spend, then we can recommend specific parts.

but if i did buy parts separately (build my own) will they put it together them selves?

Seriously? Well, if you can switch ram slots, you can put together a pc. If you can install a program or a game, you can install an operating system. Everything is basically this- put this component in the proper slot. It is very very easy.

I actually just built a pc not more than 20 minutes ago & am currently installing Windows 7. It is a pc for a co-worker. It cost a total of 200 bucks for him, since it is just for web browsing & watching hd movies.
