Have you had a look at Alienware? They make some good gaming PCs.

I would recommend staying away from the cheaper Celeron-based machines. Perhaps looking at Pentium M or Centrino. 512MB (megabytes) RAM would be the minimum, if possible configure it with 1GB (gigabyte). The MJ-12 m5500i should be ok for non-heavy games (i.e. those that do not push the graphics too far).
