i want to get into computers but i want to major in math
some schools i'm interested in offer things like computational math for example, a school i might attend offers a few math majors pure math applied math mathcomputer science and mathscientific computation the latter sounds most appealing to me, but would it be a competitive major in the computer field? or would the computer science one seem a lot more normal/acceptable? do employers typically prefer plain computer science majors to math majors? who gets paid more? what sort of jobs would something like computational math get me?

Discrete Math major is pretty much exactly what you're looking for it sounds like. I know a handful of discrete math majors, none of whom have had a problem finding internships/coop positions or a job doing computer science related things.
