Price is not a problem then any company would be good. Alienware or falcon northwest are good ones. Although I personally don't like the alienware cases.

AWW you sure you don't want to build it !? with your budget you could make a nice system and save a little money in the process and it is so FUN but anyway i have to say the gaming rigs made at FrontierPC.com - Canada's PC Technology Experts 1.866.800.8060 are very good too

NCIx will assemble your parts if you want for an extra fee.

Personally, though, its worth looking into learning to build your own just so you can save money when upgrading in the future at least. There are lots of people here who will help you choose the right parts for your needs. Plus if you have no budget (as such) then you can go really high-end and save some money for something else rather than paying a premium at falcon-northwest or whatever.

If you really dont care about budget though I like the look of the HP blackbird systems HP with VoodooDNA
