Where is a good place to buy a new computer? I would like to have it a customized computer. Is there anywhere to buy a custom computer that is good quality for $700-$850 (Desktop Computer) (that can run casual-moderate gaming and other things)? I'd like to have a choice between Nvidia and ATI cards, my choice of the processor, and the ability to refuse a mouse/keyboard or other accessory features including bluetooth and network cards.

I plan to eventually buy a gaming laptop which is why I want a good quality desktop system (without a lot of expensive or optional extras).

The best way to obtain a "customized PC"...is to build it yourself.

It's not medical science or rocket science...every component has installation guides/instructions...it doesn't take forever...and you get what you want.

It's more work to figure out what you want...but the money saved and pride you will feel when it is actually working...will more than compensate for the few hours that it takes to carefully assemble a system and install an O/S, at a leisurely pace.

If you are going to buy a system...just take the time to look for one with the specs you desire...buy the lengthy warranty...and fork over the money.

If you insist on paying someone to make decisions about what will make you happy...please look up the "reviews/comments" re some of the past products sold by these entities.

FWIW: I believe that many manufacturers who are reliable/trustworthy...now allow for optional configurations of their advertised systems.
