Well I don't recommend this as the have EXTREMELY Negative reviews and I wouldn't risk it.

If you're going to assemble it your self (another option) then i would recommend this build instead:

Oops what's your budget range?

Well Home assembly isn't that difficult, I did it twice and i'm 14!. So a guide, some tools, a good place for layout, some "Sensitive" hands and a "holiday day" and you're done also most issues that happen after home can be avoided by making sure of each "0.000000000000001" step! and the community is always here if anything went wrong.

And by customizing your PC at "CyberPower.com" you're not completely free of maintenance as their bad reviews indicates that ??% of their PCs ships out with assembly errors.

With such a Budget you'll be able to build a VERY good PC.

I'll update later as I have to go.

Which AION (Which game version) although I don't think a build costing 2K now won't be able to max out AION (perhaps 3) With AA at 1920x1080!!!

Ah....., Could you please rephrase your post!!
Well, a GTX275 is enough or even wait for the HD5870 and it'll dominate "CRYSIS" at highest settings so Aion won't be such a challenge.
Also It looks you are a loyal owner to pre-built Desktops as if recall correctly the "Area 51" is a pre-built "Alien-Ware" Desktop.
