Windows 7: Best Gaming Computer?:)

Id say from all the awesome responses I got that the Desktop PC for now wins! Now onto another debate:

What's a good Desktop PC with good gaming capabilities? What type of features should I be looking for?
Ive read somewhere it was Alienware but you guys can provide a much more indepth opinion as you did earlier!

PS To ease your minds:

Im willing to pay from a minimum of 500 bucks to a max of approx 1000 (and around, like 1200)

I already have a nice HD screen!

I wanted to play games at a good resolution, but Im willing to sacrifice graphics for good performances!

Thanks for all your expertise

start with the 2011 amd special $499....$125 gets a nice quad core...$94 gets 8 gig ddr3 1600...a 6870 for $202
$39 for a upgraded PSU...That comes to $959/ with windows 7 home/ and three year warranty...and you still have $41-$241 for any extras....

Wait let me back up a bit: Im from Italy , but live and study in the UK!

Anyways I thought about considering the laptop better since I already own an xbox 360 at home, so when Im abroad I can easily move with a laptop!

Do you know anything about the Alienware M17x? A friend of mine suggested it was one of the best in gaming laptops!

Well the m17x is my dream laptop. I can't afford it anyway so it's out for now.
If you don't find good priced prebuilt gaming PCs you can have the experience and fun of building it yourself. I have just built one for myself and made some modifications a few times. It saves a lot more money than a prebuilt by a brand.

If you don't need to bring it anywhere, get a desktop. Better bang for buck. You need to be more specific in your question, e.g. choice between what models.
WOW that Malibal is serious business !!! but surely you want a long life battery for a portable or really there is no point, might as well get a desktop.
