Why does every PC designed for gaming have the dumbest enclosures? A window looking in to the motherboard? What for? The only visible moving parts are cooling fans. Oh wait lets put some stupid looking blue neon lighting so it looks like a Honda Civic from the Fast and the Furious.

Seriously.... give me a plain black case with a power button and a slot for the Blue Ray/ DVD drive.

Does anyone have any reccommendations for a decent PC for around 600-800$?

Quad core processor a least I would assume?

What graphics cards are decent these days? Is HDMI output pretty much standard these days? I wouldn't mind hooking a PC up to my HDTV.

How much RAM?

Don't care about Blue Ray since I already own a couple of PS3s. Hard drive space doesn't matter to me much since USB drives are dirt cheap and can add on easily when needed, and probably cheaper than getting a big drive now.

My computer case is clear acrylic. one panel on it is Blue Acrylic. All of my LED colors died except ONE now. BUt yah, makes it REAL easy to measure dust build up. My wife had a friend over, saw my computer and asked what it was. This is a person that USES computers every day. All of the drives are clearly visible. Hah, my intent wasn't to make indecipherable to peeps. it just seemed cool. THE ONLY value really, is i get to see if any cables are obstructing a fan. heh heh.
