Hey everyone! Thank you so much in advance for taking the time in reading and for the advice,tips!

I'm looking for a gaming computer/ gaming laptop which is state of the art for the money I'll put in. the computer can either be pre-built or just separate parts put together and actually work together. Another option is a pre-built laptop for around 2000-3000$. I would like to be able to run high-end games such as crysis 2, swtor, diablo 3, rift and other upcoming games all on the best possible graphics and will run very smoothly. I understand that computers are becoming better and better but a computer/laptop that will last a for awhile and won't break down would be awesome. :) 

Computer skills 2/10: I'm still new to this whole concept of building a computer or even knowing what does what.

key parts: monitor, tower/laptop, mouse, keyboard, mouse pad.

Goal and needs:

- budget of 2000-3000$ applies to all features and costs of shipment, taxes, mouse, keyboard, monitor etc...
- able to run high end games on best possible quality smoothly.
- not looking to upgrade too often.
- very fast.
- power supply needed to run computer and a few other light things.
- gaming keyboard (quiet, comfortable)
- gaming mouse and mouse pad ( quiet, comfortable)
- monitor which functions best with tower and other applications.
- best cooling methods but is not hard to set up.
- If it would be worth purchasing a brand name or pre-built laptop/desktop with warranty
- location or sites to purchase parts or rig from (I'm from Canada, Ontario)
- overclocking: no.
- system usage from most important to least: high-end games, surfing web, movies.
- nice looking case
-approximate purchase date: Mid July- August 2012.
- will pay little more for rig if it is highly worth it.
- required cables or other things to function properly.

I'm not so knowledgeable on what parts are better and how to run it or the abbreviations used to communicate with, so user friendly responses are appreciated and thank you so much in advance for taking the time in reading and commenting. :D

:hello: 
monitors look awesome but i'm looking for a single monitor display, the 900$ and 700$ 3d monitors look great but wouldn't your eyes like die out if you use 3d too extensively? I wouldn't mind the 3d feature but is that why the price is so hefty or is it just the general quality of the monitors itself that make it costly? thanks again for the help!

This tech is costly but newer once are improved.

I too dont like 3d it hurt my eyes.

I just posted because its personal prifference.

The ips once are costly as they have pro quality picture generation and produce life like colour the price of this monitors justify themselves.

If you want single i highly recommend the dell ultrasharp 27" ips monitor and it also has 1440p

which will give you sharper image

awesome so is that the best image quality? I thought 1080p was the best. also i noticed it was 60hz, is that sufficient for gaming? or is 120hz make a much more noticeable difference?

60hz is more than enough.

120hz is for 3d which splits the bandwidth to 60hz per eye. thats why 120 hz.

Ips dont come in 120hz
