I'm looking somewhere around 1,000- 1,100 , also please don't say to build one because i don't want to thanks! One last thing if there isn't a computer then you can suggest on what to look for when buying a good gaming computer! Thanks!

Well many computers because of Windows 8 are coming with 8 GB of ram, some computers I seen 16gb of ram.
The models with 16gb ram is probably going to be in the price range you are looking for. The graphics card you will find in these high end models should be sufficient enough for gaming on reasonable settings.
Is there any brand name in particular you had your eyes on?

Also, one last thought where would you recommend looking for a gaming pc? i mean i;ve looked over 100 reviews and all of them have different computers.. As i said i only have about 1,200...

First of all, in this price range you specify you want to make sure that your hardware is not under powered.
Now companies like HP, Acer , Gateway, Dell , in the past they would load 300 watt power supplies onto systems which really may have needed more power. How the machines did not crash and last would be beyond me. You want to get a computer and make sure it has a powerful power supply and it can handle all the stuff you want to do without overheating/ being over worked, etc.
If you buy your computer from a built to order store, you are exactly getting what you want and a bigger power supply is a must if you want to upgrade your current unit to better hardware in the future.
Top of the line video cards often rely on external power through Molex connectors from the power supply to ensure proper operation. Anything else an it could be bottlenecking the potential performance of your computer.

I liked the HP computer you showed me it looked like a solid awesome computer with room to expand. The case looked pretty cool too and not over the top. You are going to pay more for geeking out your computer and then some.
