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 (www.pricespy.co.nz) 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.
