Windows 7: Getting a new computer $800-$1000

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit/Windows 8 64-bit/Win7 Pro64-bit

I just looked at the motherboard for the XPS 8700 and it kind of scares me... it is not organized like a normal one.

Since you don't want to mess with hardware or learn how to, why would a motherboard scare you? Surely you'll never see it.

Well if i go with a custom pc, i would not have any support other than SF. I have noticed too that they use budget components. The Nvidia GeForce 645 is supposed to have 3D Vision but on the dell website, it says it doesn't.
A response for the record.
This could be nonsense depending on who does the build. My own build (see specs) could have been built by a reputable shop and all quality components.
