Well this is interesting....
When in doubt about a company search them on BBB(better buisness bureau).
Take a look at this

I only heard of good experiences with them in the past, after reading that I personally wouldn't buy from them.

There, I will have experts to actually show me what the PC can do, and I can see the monitor, mouse, and laptop that I can buy.

Just a quick question for you - are they EXPERTS or sales staff? Just because someone works at a store like that doesn't make them an expert, just giving you a little advice, that's all. Don't get stung!

I would take a look at Digital Storm. They've got a good reputation, quality parts, and decent prices. The benefit to going with a system integrator like Cyberpower is that you get to choose brand name parts as opposed to the generic brands that you will get buying an HP or Dell. Not that generic parts are bad, but for enthusiasts (which most people on this board are) they just don't cut the mustard.

One thing I would suggest is that if you decide to go with Cyberpower or something like it, buy your monitor seperately. Monitors don't require any assembly on your part and you will save some money. For example, here is the exact same monitor that you picked, but instead of $197 you'd only be paying $150 after rebate:

I would suggest the same thing with the graphics card as well, because they are extremely easy to install. Remember, you are paying a premium on every component you purchast through the integrator (that's how they make their money) so the more you can get on your own the more you'll save. But, if it's easier for you to get it all from one place, that's fine too. Good luck.
