You're going to get a lot of recommendations to build a computer since it's the cheapest option, but I would recommend buying something like this and then just throwing in a new video card (which isn't very hard). It would only end up costing about $600 after you buy a video card (I recommend the Radeon 4850). Everything on that computer is very high quality other than the on board video.

Also if you want a gaming laptop this is probably one of the best deals you can find on one:

The nice thing about valve games is that they run on really old rigs. It dosent take much to run em good.

You can get a real good quality rig for under $900 now a days. I would follow DrFoo's advice if you are not too familiar with building your own.
