Where to buy a new desktop?

  Clueless_Techie 01:10 16 Jul 2009

Hi, I'm looking to buy a new desktop that will be used almost exclusively for gaming (Have a decent enough laptop that I'll keep for actual work). I've been looking at different sites, and checking on their reliability, and they all seem to have mixed reviews. I was wondering what sites you would recommend for a good pc (I tend to keep them for a long time, so I prefer them to be very reliable).

Thanks in advance for any help.

My Cougar system has been trouble free since Feb 2008.

Serious gaming requires high spec equipment which comes at a greater price.
I trust this firm to deal promptly and responsibly though gaming is not for me.

Thanks for the sites here. I'll probably use one of those. Now instead of starting a new thread, can anyone tell me what sort of processor is good for gaming? That's the only thing that I don't really know what to choose in my new pc.

If you havent guessed by now, I'm not great with computer hardware. Just thought I'd post these specs and make sure the system will work well.
