http://www.alienware.com/ I always thought these people built PCs that would be good. I don't know though, never did it. Comparison pricing with the parts only you can look here:

http://www.newegg.com/ and just in time for MOTHERBOARDS DAY .... :thumbsup:

welcome to BC, IAmLinkGirl

Depending on what area you live in, you might try the Froogle search by way of Google, try Computers, Computer Building, Computer Service, etc.

Usernet boards sometimes feature such services.
Best advice is to keep posting here as you go along.
Try some things, let us know, we'll suggest some more.

Take some time to go through the Hardware Forum and look for topics like "building a PC." I seem to remember some very good discussions there. You have several options:
1. Buy the parts (there are many internet stores for this) and have someone else build the computer.
2. Have a shop (or individual) buy the parts and build it for you.
3. Buy the parts and build it yourself (only a few tools are required and there are all sorts of instructions available on the web).

Depending on the size of the city where you live, there are usually computer repair shops that will either build one for you, or at least be able to recommend someone; the yellow pages or local newspapers are a good place to find people, as well.
Lastly, both Dell and Gateway will allow you to configure/design a computer, build it, and ship it to you.

Hope this helps you,
Regards,
John

quite a few for 600-900.00. Less than I paid to build mine, all things considered. I never saw the 5,000.00 ones.

I'd say you can expect to pay in that range. Custom build.
