A lot of guys build their own.  However, I got a Dell XPS 9600 with two 500 gig hard drives...no problems.

look for at least a intel core 2 duo, quad, i5, i7, amd phenom x4 II.

for videocard, you want a geforce GTs 250 or higher.

HD, depends on how much music, games, videos you have. 500 gigs is usually fine.

There is no need for more than 4 gigs of ram unless you are doing hardcore photoshop or video editing.

Maybe you should buy a computer instead of building one.

Gateways suck!!!

Go with a 260 gtx card,
4 gigs of ram is usually plenty
I am not an intel fan so go with the AMD II x4
