Why not roll your own?
It is not hard.... You simply need to head to an online PC store, buy a case/CPU/MoBo/GPU/PSU/RAM/HDD/Optical drive, and voila!
When the parts arrive, putting it together is so easy that a monkey could do it.

If it is difficulty in selection of parts which work together, basically all one needs do is select the correct MoBo socket for their CPU, and get a PSU with enough wattage for their GPU.... Not exactly hard, I would argue it is easier than trawling through the convoluted websites of Dell et all.
