What would be better??

What would be better???

buying from digital storm or building my own??

i know that building my own is cheaper, but i don't know how to OC
and things like that, and I'm not sure if i want to put a liquid cooling
system together. I know that digital storm has great ratings and a
great team that tests the systems

I want a system that is under $1000 but will spend up to $1300.

if any one has suggestions about a (good) gaming computer for
under $1000 thats capable of OC then that would be great.

    Rethink what you are asking for.
    With your budget, spend your money on a great vga card, perhaps a 5870 for $400
    Add a $200 i5-750 or X4-965 air cooled and you will get exceptional gaming at 1920 x 1200 resolution. Only if you have a 2560 x 1600 monitor might you need more.
    A cpu OC may only be helpful if your game is multi core enabled like FSX Most of the time it does not help gaming much.
    Use those liquid cooling dollars for a better cpu or vga card; it will be spent more effectively.

    High end rigs tend to get a larger markup. Building it yourself can get you a better rig for the dollar.
    Plus... the experience is priceless.
