    Could someone reccomend a good gaming rig for about 1000 dollars. i heard bad reviews about alienwar and cyberpower
    i've also looked into dell, vigor, and avadirect
    what would you reccomend
    i am aiming to be able to play very well most games for around the next 2 years
    i am thinking of getting a good dual core processor
    maybe either two good crossfire cards or one top notch graphics card
    and probably either 2 or 4 gigs of ram
    i don't really need huge sata drives or quad processors or 3 way sli or tons of memory
    mostly i'm aiming for good processor and graphics card because those are i think the necessary parts for gaming

    Well, as long as you get a good motherboard and power supply you should be able to keep up for a while, upgrading when you need to, however you may have trouble in 2 years with the new processors coming out next year and games are going to get a lot tougher to run. You really cant trust a large manufacturer to give you a gaming computer that will last you 2 years at the top, especially if your budget is $1000... I would suggest to get a list of parts here and go to a local computer store and ask them to build it for you (shouldn't cost you over $100) I cant suggest anything now, i gotta go
