Hello,
I was wondering you guys can help me out in finding a Gaming PC from dell. the games i intend the play are L4d 1 and 2, TF2, and i might even get starcraft 2 when it comes out this year. by the way my budget is $1,200 or lower.

Honestly, if you are looking at buying a PC for gaming I highly recommend you build one yourself. The main advantage is that you can upgrade your PC for future demand without having to replace the entire thing (pre-built PCs have proprietary issues). It may take a week or two to become educated on the subject, but for $1200 it would be well worth it.

That being said, if you are still set on buying a pre-built dell, I recommend you customize the Alienware Aurora:

http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&oc=DPCWVQ1&s=dhs

Go with a 5770 for the video card and 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM for a total of $1149.00. As for the CPU, if you want the quad it's going to cost you $200 more but the i3 530 is still quite capable...
