Buying a desktop - help.

I'm writing from Australia. My daugther was married in the USA recently and lives in Oviedo, Florida. I want to buy her a computer with webcam, so we can communicate with her. So, Mum's paying! I was recently speaking with Gateway, and they told me this was all possible. So, I accepted a quote from them. They asked for my daughter's details, then mine, which I gave. At this point, they told me the shipping and billing address had to be USA based, so couldn't carry on with the Order. I emailed Dell, and they had a similar answer. Is there any way I can purchase a new desktop online (from Australia), with my credit card, to be sent to my daughter in Florida?
Any advice gratefully received.

Hi Chuck,
Many thanks for your reply. It has given me a direction. I see Tiger Direct have a website, too. I will get my daughter to contact them.
