I figured you guys here would be the ultimate kings of PC gaming knowledge so I'm layin out my situation here. Whoever helps me will have a goat sacrificied in their honor. If I can't find a goat one of my roomate's hamsters will probably burn up nicely as well.

Last computer I got was in 2002 - I love playing games on it but its definitely showing its age with newer stuff like Half-Life 2 and such.

Anyway, I just graduated college and got a job in Korea (leaving in 3 weeks). I've always wanted a badass graphics card and now I have some money to spend so I'll treat myself.

I know very little about computers and cards but I've heard that the ATI RADEON X1900 XTX is probably one of the better ones out right now... Any thoughts?

I've heard people mentioning PCI and APU or whatever but I don't really know what that means.

Basically I'm looking for a desktop (i hate laptops) that has that graphics card (or another good one) in it that is good for gaming. I have no idea what the price range is on these things but I already have a great keyboard, mouse, speakers, subwoofer etc. I'll probably be needing a flatscreen monitor since I'll be traveling.

Is there any site that will put together a custom computer like that and ship it to me for a decent price or would I have to buy all the components myself and assemble it? Not that I've looked extensively (best buy and Dell .com etc) but I haven't seen any computers with the advanced graphics cards like the ATI RADEON X1900 XTX already in 'em.

Any info or pointing in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. I don't need the ultimate in total gaming power but something nice would be uhh, nice.

Thanks,

Hamburglar

I would say that Dell are the only PC manufcaturor that makes gaming PC's for a reasonable price. The Dell XPS line make top notch gaming PC's. Here's the link: http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/xpsdt_700?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs

For the best pre-built try Falcon Northwest. You could try some lower end and cheaper systems from alienware or dell, but they just dont work as good in my opinoun. Building your own is the best choice and you get your moneys worth out of it but can be hard for some to do.

Falcon NorthWest and Alienware are two of the most expensive manufacturers. They specialize in high end machines, so they have to charge a lot for the computers they build.

Alienware systems are just as expensive as Falcon Northwest, and are considered more legendary because they've been around a while longer.
