          For gaming, you might as well get an Alienware.

            Lol, first you suggest eMachines (pos ) and then you suggest Alienware (ownage). O_o Both sides of the spectrum there.

              Ditto. If you must get a prebuilt at all, it's Alienware or nothing. Otherwise get him to buy the parts and you can put it together.

                  NO GATEWAY!

                  BAD GATEWAY!

                  NO GATEWAY!

                  BAD KITTY!

                  Alienware, absolutely. If you feel like spending some more of his money, look at Falcon Northwest -> http://www.falcon-nw.com/

                    Well that rules out MAC's

                    get a DELL Dimension 4600C , 8300 or XPS

                    I would personally never use any computer i never built myself, but since you dont have that option, dell is the best for proprietary systems

                      I, on the other hand, would never use a machine I DID build myself LOL

                        Be very careful of Dell. They just laid off a lot of their support staff and started farming it out to call centers that give you support from a book instead of hands-on. Who knows? You might be getting support from the same people who help you with a Thigh-Master.

                            Nope. I only build my own. Cheaper and far superior quality doing it that way.

                              Computers or Thigh-Masters?
