Looking at stock computers and found that all they have is very high storage and crap processors, ranging from 600-1200 dollars at staples. Havent tried it yet but it should be some fast gaming. It also has a SSD supposedly making it up to 10 times faster!

Well, generally getting stock or pre-built computers is way more expensive than getting individual components.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson
