    When I got back into PC gaming I got an I buy power and it was great. Enough power to run most games on medium high and very easily upgradable. I'd recommend that company.. even had rgb a little bit with the intake fan before it was a big deal heh.

    Maingear is expensive if you want an actually good gaming PC, probably because the case is ridiculously fancy and comes with stock water cooling. Expect to spend about $2,000 USD for a Ryzen 5 2600x system. It does include free gear and games, but if you don't need those games, you could save yourself like $700 buying an iBuyPower or cyber power pc and they would include a Ryzen 7 2700x and 2060 GPU.

    The HP Omen canceling the order because you used Hangouts and the phone number didn't match I would actually put in the 'Good' side, because they are sensitive to the problem with identity theft, and it didn't slow down their delivery in the least (as you said, first at the doorstep). I mean, imagine if someone had spoofed your information, wouldn't you want them to NOT charge you $1500 on a system you didn't buy?

    HP wins for me for the quick delivery time. I have zero patience, so I'd not be able to wait 20 days for the Alienware. Yes, I'm commenting before waiting to hear how long the other systems took to deliver. Anyway, if I had that kind of money to spend on a system, I'd get parts from Amazon using Prime next day delivery and build it myself. Not a fan of pre-built systems. I learned to build PCs so I could build them, not so I could pay for one that's already built, where's the fun in that? Though I must admit the big brand ones do look good. Anyway, HP is my favourite PC manufacturer, and has been for a long time. Never had a system by them fail on me for something that wasn't my fault. So if I wanted to buy a complete system, it would be from them anyway. Or Apple, but that's another story.
