Okay, This guy is pissing on the cost, as long as it is under 12000 DKK
This is the beast i've found 'til now.
24x Lite-On DVD/RW LightScribe Sort SATA
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev2 Multi
950W Corsair TX CMPSU-950TXEU 120mm
Cooler Master HAF 932 u/PSU
1TB Samsung F3 SpinPoint 7200rpm 32MB SATA2
2048MB XFX ATI HD6950 800M DDR5 PCI-E
8GB DDR3 1600MHz Kingston HyperX (4x2GB)
ASUS P8P67 DELUXE B3 DDR3 S-1155
Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4GHz 8MB S-1155

Errr... I believe this IS a beast, right? I am of the belief that it is no little kitten...

EDIT: That really is the guy, Peehunter. What a ridiculous name, though... (;

This^ but a couple of things not needed,

get 2500k over the 2600k unless you will utilize HT.
4GB enough for gaming.
Asus P8p67 Pro is just as good.
6950 or gtx 580 should do fine and gives the opportunity to upgrade in future.
No need for 950w PSU, 850w PSU (antect corsair or seasonic) is good enough for 580 SLI.
Thermalright Silver arrow or Noctua DH-14 are some of the best air coolers around or if your on budget get the Coolermaster 212+.

Thanks for the help. The manufacturer does have some restricitions, though, and they do not have this aforementioned cooler.
So this should basically be THE thing for this guy:
24x Lite-On DVD/RW LightScribe Sort SATA
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev2 Multi
850W Corsair TX CMPSU-850TXEU 140mm
Cooler Master HAF 932 u/PSU
1TB Samsung F3 SpinPoint 7200rpm 32MB SATA2
2048MB XFX ATI HD6950 800M DDR5 PCI-E
8GB DDR3 1600MHz Kingston HyperX (4x2GB)
ASUS P8P67 DELUXE B3 DDR3 S-1155
Intel Core i7-2600 3.4GHz 8MB S-1155

no. unless your define value by how many shiny lights
and things fit into an object, then yes.

laptop = Sager custom
desktop = build your own

both = faster and cheaper and the desktop you can put in
your own shiny lights and pimp case

Its more like 60% less. The basic Aurora is $2300 and has an i5-2400 and a 1GB GTX 460. This does not include a monitor or keyboard.

You can build an i5-2500K system with a 6850 in a HAF 922 with better ram, PSU, MB for $1000 if you get your parts from MSY - And this system would completely blow away the Alienware.
