Time for a new desktop... or maybe laptop???

Ok Guys...

My wifes desktop is my old desktop from about 6 years ago...

It was top of the line back then, and it still runs ok, but I figured, hey she has asked for a new PC and Valentines day is right around the corner... Also, I can hear a bearing going out on a fan, not sure if it is on the CPU cooler or a case fan, but it doesnt matter she wants a new one...

The last PC we got was of the laptop variety... and because I have been playing PC games on it alot, she is not a happy camper...

So I was thinking for V-Day get her a new PC, but it needs to be one which wont break the bank.

I was thinking in the $600-800 USD range preferably on the lower end of that. Think I can get a decent laptop in that range?

Also since I will be using it occasionally to play games, it needs to have a middle of the road video card...

I am very hardware oriented, but I have VERY little experience with laptops so I would prefer a laptop by a major manufacturer so that if something goes awry I can send it in to be fixed...

Ideas suggestions?

Let's hear them!

You can go to bestbuy and get a nice laptop for around 600.
That is circuitcity who just filed for bankruptcy and are having a liquidation sell.
I see a lot of really decent laptops around 700 on Amazon and Newegg. Most of them with 4GB of RAM. All I can say is ... at that price ... I'd hit it.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
