ecollegepc is good and probably the most frequently recommended.

Yeah nvm, xoticpc does sell desktops, I just usually see it recommended when people are talking about laptops. In any case I'd go with ecollegepc.

would you be open to building one yourself? it's really not that hard and it will serve you well in the long run.

you will learn a lot about the computer, you will get the best machine possible for your money, and if you want to upgrade it down the line it will be a piece of cake.

I just built my first computer a month ago with no help IRL, just did a bit of online reasearcj,used message boards such as this one etc.

Newegg is where I get all my stuff, they have good prices and free shipping on most stuff.

The best way I can think of to piece a computer together is through pcpartpicker.com. You can select all of the parts that you want, get the best prices available to you automatically by the website cycling through other site's offers, ensure that everything is compatible through the filtering of incompatible parts, etc.

A very useful site.

BTW, if you need games to fill that computer, check out https://www.g2a.com/r/jackh for cheap game keys. All keys are legit and at significantly reduced cost. You will see what I mean.
