I am searching for a new computer that I could use for gaming, CoDWaW, Protoype, GRID, Some NFS series, Fallout 3, Burnout Paradise, BF2, and others alike. I am definitely looking forward to playing Cod Modern Warfare 2 also. And maybe,just maybe another swing at running GTA4 on a computer....Got it to run on my old PC but it was playable for a little, but mostly it was just lagland.

My old computer (2005) can run those games, but not that great. This is because of the processor, a sad AMD anthlon 64 3200+, a sad 160gb HDD which I am constantly running out of space and the RAM is only 2gb. I do have a Nvidia 9600gt video card, so I don't think ill be needing a dedicated graphics on a new computer since I can install this, as I do have it on my current pc.
I do not need a monitor, a sound system, keyboard and mice. But I could use a new keyboard and a new mouse though. Would like the pc to come with an OS, Vista preferably.

Here are some of my choices of that i could buy, I would prefer not to go over the $750 mark.
1. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9384285&t...
2. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9366599&t...
3. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9168205&t...

I am wondering if choice 1 is any good, because it looks to good to not have any problems with it.
Any links leading to custom built computers on sites like ibuypower.com I could also use.

Thank you for helping.

What's stopping you from building it yourself?

I have the ability to build one on my own, but I'm not really sure about how to put motherboards into computer cases. I also don't know about any local computer shops that are close, except for Best Buy, Staples and stores like that. So I'm not sure where to buy each part.

Buy the parts online like from newegg. And i didn't follow those links you posted, but i warn you, most computers i have seen at bestbuy, you can build for about 2 or 300 bux cheaper... Maybe more.
