...A PC with an AMD graphics card and Intel Core i7-3930K processor, or one with an NVIDIA graphics card and Intel Core i7-4770K processor? I want to run brand new games and ones coming out like Watch Dogs and games coming in the next few years.

EDIT: Thought I'd add this in: say I wanted to play a game that said it needed an NVIDIA graphics card in the system requirements for the game, but my PC had an AMD card, could I still play it?

AMD Radeon HD 8950 to be specific about the AMD card, and NVIDIA GTX 780ti for the NVIDIA.

Actually it looks like an OEM only rebadge of the 7950.

Oh, on bestbuy.com it says the AMD card was the graphics card for the Lenovo Erazer X700 PC I was looking at and the NVIDIA card for the ASUS G30 PC I'm also looking at. Let's just change the question: should I get the Lenovo Erazer X700 or the ASUS G30?

On second thought I'll just get the Lenovo.

Then if I shoudn't get the Lenovo one, should I just get an ASUS G30 and modify it if possible (speaking of which, can you modify an ASUS G30?)?
