Buying a stripped down computer
And if you're wondering what kind of power ill need, the most power hungry game I'd probably play would be like a FPS or simulator of some kind. I'd mainly play indie games though.

i haven't done this in a while, but my favorite online retailer was always NewEgg.com. they had great inventory, reliable shipping, decent prices, and good customer service. to be cost-competitive, i would determine all the parts i need, then look them up at http://www.pricegrabber.com/computers/, which displays the prices for many competing online (and sometimes brick-and-mortar) retailers - does a lot of leg work for you. but to keep shipping prices down, i usually went w/newegg for most things.
nowadays, though, Amazon has pretty much EVERYTHING, as long as you are not too exotic or cutting edge in your desires.
