    Uh... why didnt you just give the model number? :p It's a very nice system but you're payin way to much for it :) Build it urself and cut out prolly close to $1000

    I don't want to build my wns system because:
    -Don't know how.
    -I love the case on the alienware.
    -It comes all in orange keyboard, mouse, computer.
    -And look at all the guys that built a computer, they post new threads all the time over here.
    (So i'll just stick with this one)

    I have to agree with Praetor, you could build it for a lot cheaper but it sounds like a good system. If looks are that important to you (and you have $3K to blow) go for it. Also, how is there a raid array with one hard drive or is there more than one 160GB hard drive? Does the system have any optical drives?

    If you've got the cashe the system is good but might i suggest you have a look at Voodoo cuz unless you want to get the ALXs the Voodoos are much better as far as cooling goes (i.e., vapor coolers)

    Take a look at ABSPC, they are the best bang for the buck. I would NOT recommend an alienware unless you have cash growing on a tree in your backyard. If you have the money then just blow it on the alienware.

    The best solution would be to build your own PC, it's simple, and you will be so much better off, it's a skill you will cherish until the day you die.
