CyberPowerPC makes decent rigs. However, if you can, I'd suggest building your own (with assistance from someone who knows what they're doing) over buying from Best Buy.

You HAVE to choose a pre-built from BestBuy? That really isn't going to give you great value. Building it yourself will allow you to build a much better system for the same price. Not to mention very few pre-built systems are actually decent for gaming (unless you spend a TON of money).

This is the cheapest one that I could find with a decent video card that can probably play most games on high/ultra, on a single monitor.

However, for the same price you could build yourself a system with specs better geared towards gaming.

Is that a SFF rig? It has a nice graphics card, but I've heard really bad things about SFF builds, with them being hard to work on, and getting really hot and all.

I was simply going on specs alone so maybe?
