Hi, I am currently looking to buy a desktop computer; specifically for gaming. My current desktop pc is beginning to show signs of frying on me after a little over a year. I really only have a few specific games I play on my computer such as "The Sims 3," However I am getting annoyed of constant problems. I have read many forumns that say the best gaming computer you can get for your money is by building one yourself. But that is not an option for me as I am not technically skilled and can electrocute myself just by plugging a lamp into a wall outlet. All I know though is that everytime I bought a pre-built one the clerks said it would run the game fine what they didn't say was just barely. So I was reading up on alienware and others that were ranked as good gaming computers alone. And I came across the cyberpower black pearl pc. I was just wondering if one of the two brands was a good option or if someone can help me configure one that would come out to be less than two thousand dollars.

OK!! Cheap for $2000 you would be buying high end enthusiastic PC, meaning You will be running all the current games At ultra setting without breaking a sweat.

Just go with their Weekly gamer special For around $1300-$1400. They will build it for you for 20$ i believe.

ibuy power does do decent builds but pick your parts carefully.
post the specs and we will tell you if its a good choice.
also your old pc is less than a year old return it under warranty and ask for a refund. they may turn round and refurbish it for you and then you can add new parts to it...
even if you cant build a pc theres likely a family member who can. he or she will easily be able to swap out a gfx crd or replace a psu...
what specs do you currently have as there may be no need to do a full upgrade, just replace some basics to get you some experience at remove the fear of tinkering...
i know its daunting to open a pc but really even if your not tech savy you can replace a gfx card or processor with a little help and a shaky hand ;) 
its just a question of nutting up. after all if its nearly dead then you wont risk anything by killing it propperly ;) 
especially if it saves you $1000
