Gaming Computer Questions

Why are gaming computers so freaking expensive? Is it the processor? The graphics card? All this and more?

I'd really like a better performing computer for games (3d, MMORPGs, second-life-esque, and the like), but geez $2000 and up??!! How much on average would it cost for a person to just build their own, is it close to the same price range?

Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks!

I would say the graphic card.
I suggest to buy an assembled dual core computer, then buy a good graphic card separately. Just verify that the power supply is at least 350-400W. W/o monitor etc.
It should cost around 700$ if you have a good deal.

You def do NOT need to spend upwards of 2K for a gaming PC. Once you factor in the cost of the games versus console cost, in the long term, PC gaming cheaper anyway.
