I'm looking for the cheapest gaming desktop. I would like it to be a keeper, one that I could upgrade every aspect of when neccessary. I would also like to run multiple graphics cards. The system should 2 or more PCI-Express cables.
I have scoured the internet but cannot find any reasonably priced gamings rigs like this anywhere. I've asked countless sellers to no avail. So, any help is much appreciated.P.S. They graphics cards don't need to be included, as I can buy them separate, or if you need to pay more for them, I could do that, thanks in advance.

All of this makes sense except "cheapest", especially with multiple graphics cards. SLI/xfire only makes sense in the $1000 range.
You'll only accept prebuilt? It would be cheaper and more customizable, and you'd understand it better too (for later upgrading) if you put this thing together yourself. Only in this way could you put together exactly what you want.
What is your budget, and what do you need this thing to run? Monitor res, type of games, etc.
