I'm a gamer. I have other PCs for business. Budget? Hmm... I was thinking ~$2,000.00. I was going to buy a VM at my local BB. However, VM from BB is not available in Ohio. I didn't necessarily want to order online but I am now strongly considering it, in order to get better components.

Just to complicate matters.... you might want to look at Maingear, too. Check out the Prelude.
Not sure, but is Ava in Ohio? Would mean state tax for you?

Both are top-notch. Use the online configurators to get a rough idea of what you want then call each to fine tune your ideas. I have found that many things are possible that simply arnt in the web configurators. Components, OC, special touches, etc. Then compare and choose.

As has been said, do consider some of the other shops; OPC (overdrive PC), maingear, VM, AVA, ABS, puget to name a few.

FWIW, AVA is in Twinsburg Ohio. I can highly recommend them as a high quality integrator and you'll definitely save on shipping. Call Misha, he may even let you pick it up at the shop.

Yeah, good point about the shipping. I am in Pittsburgh, PA and my shipping from AVA is only about $35 ground and $66 for 2 day, so yours should be next to nothing (or actually nothing, if you pick it up). That would definitely offset any taxes you would pay...
