I have never seen soooo much BS in my life. I chewed someone out when they said it was the truth in a different forum

wow those web pages are full of soo much BS i could not continue looking at it.... If you have the money and a little more time I suggest buying bro it is prolly the best thing i could do. I spent close to 3 grand on my comp and it is a beautiful machine looks great works even better and since I took the time to research and work everything out WAS ALOT cheaper than an alienware. my cousin bought an alienware he hates it... he bought a macbook 3 months after... thats how bad the experience was. They charge over 500 dollars for a Q6600 which retails around 199.99-250. according to there system you cannot run SLI 8800GTs on 750W power supply I am doing it fine. I also have 4 pumps attached and got close to 10 fans running on a 750W power supply and I can still add MUCH more if I wanted. They say there mother boards are on the "cutting edge" yet they are still using a 680i board when 780i and the 790i are out and available. so my suggestion NEVER EVER buy alienware most overpriced company before and AFTER Dell bought them. This company sickens me more than any other company out there because they cannot take the time to understand there customer and they think they are right and everything not them is stupid and retarded ugh...sorry about the rant but definetly never ever alienware

Steps 6 through 19 can be done in under a day.

There are many less-than-reputable distributors that are only interested in a quick sale rather than in your satisfaction. Unfortunately, this requires you to evaluate not only the components, but the sources from which you obtain them, causing you to spend a lot more time configuring your self-built system than you would configuring an Alienware system.
I'm glad Alienware's website doesn't lie to you either.

lol. w/ me, OCN, and newegg I can get steps 1-19 done in about 3-5 days. That's probably faster(and much cheaper) than what alienware can pull off.

hey now... i have an alienware... don't be hate'n...

alienware computers are designed for people who dont know what is going on with computer hardware, and just want to fork out the bucks to have someone else do it. It's a niche market, but a market none the less... People are buying them aren't they?

They are only buying them because they are not properly educated on building a system themselves. I guess I could see you buying it if you're rich and don't want to deal with it yourself...but when I think about it, if I were rich, I'd still build it myself. Much more fun and more options.

And come on...30 components? Lets see here...case, motherboard, RAM, CPU, GPU, hard drives, optical drives, monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, card readers, printer...thats only 15 so far depending on how many drives you want...I wonder if they're counting 3, 5, and 8 inch floppies as well
