You might as well ask what kind of car is best to get for a given price. So, a few questions first:

What do you want to do with the pc? Play games? Play multimedia? Run a HTPC? Author your own audio? Mix your own video? Just plain old surf the web and email ppl?
Where do you want to put the pc?
Is a specific form factor a requirement?
Do you need it to run ultra quiet?
Do you plan to overclock it?
Do you have a specific OS in mind?
How techie are you or your cuz? Can you build from parts? Quality or quantity?

There are many good PC shops in Ak, I would suggest you check to see how long they've been in operation as the bad ones tend not to last very long. You could even go online ( and see if any shop outside Ak meets your needs better. And remember that pc's are commodities. Price differences in identical components often reflect differences in after-sales support. Google is your friend, so pick a few likely-looking stores and do a little research, see what feedback there is.
