1100 bucks buy a dell. It comes assembled and you can get a nice monitor with it. Thats the easiest and problably the fastest way to do it if you have never built one before. If you really want to build one we can help. Just post back and one of us can give you a list of components that would fit your needs.
Edit: To BC

Hi, you could either buy a Laptop (Dell or Alienware) or an already built PC which is the easiest way and would be to your door-step in less than 2 weeks time. Or else go to a local computer shop and buy the items off the shelf and build it within a day. The ball is in your feet, you have to choose.

That's a double edge sword. You don't have to install the OS, but you don't have a OS disk, either. Chances are , later on, you'll be glad you have one
The thing you save with prebuilts is that the OS and monitors as well as keyboard and speakers are already taken care of.

The thing you save with prebuilts is that the OS and monitors as well as keyboard and speakers are already taken care of. If you don't want to know EXACTLY what's going into it, get a prebuilt and save some green on those included parts. If you want to know what goes into the build, you should build it yourself. I personally think that custom-builds are better performance-wise and more fulfilling than buying prebuilts, but you decide yourself. However, a custom build is not an elegant show of your smarts in computers. You will almost definitely hit road blocks. I also believe though that I enjoy custom builds more when you build them yourself. Heck, you can color-code your computer or something if you buy all-MSI components. Also prebuilts do NOT have expandability options equal to customs. For one, you don't know a single thing about the inside of that case. The big PC companies make their own mobo form factors and PSU form factors, as well as the screwholes for the HSF on the CPU, so you cannot upgrade with standard parts from a computer store. If you will custom build, go NewEgg and save about $200 instead of that computer store. They charge a LOT more than NewEgg.
