Hi guys,

I am currently playing Starcraft 2, as well as some other games on the side, currently on my laptop (ASUS G60VX), as I do not own a desktop. However I am looking for a gaming desktop that will easily outperform this laptop. Preferably, I am looking for a desktop that I can buy as a whole rather than make by myself, but I am open to all suggestions.

I guess what I am asking is what is the best desktop computer, geared for gaming, that I can purchase, anywhere between $1000-$2000 dollars.

Thanks!

newegg has several models for sale from ibuypower and cyberpower (same company). to get the most for your dollar though, build the PC yourself or at least buy the video card separately

I've been looking on newegg and such sites. The main problem is that I am not too familiar with making a PC myself... Mainly, knowing which parts are necessary and would ultimately make the best computer. I am quite familiar with video cards however so this may be a good idea.
Thanks for the answer.
