good thing I came here.
I need to read up. Especially about the alienware stuff, I seriously thought that was the route to go, guess not though.
John, do not make a mistake by buying an Alienware.
Yeah, they might look cool, but they're always overpriced and you can always build custom pc with the same hardware for like... 40% cheaper...

Newer, and 100 dollars cheaper. Plus I doubt he will EVER need QUAD fire or QUAD Sli. Spend that 100 on a SSD.
Plus that RAM is duel channel and will not work well in that board. You need triple channel memory. I will PM you with a build.
Not a bad idea, I second this!

Yeah, Seasonic X-750 is the best choice for his son I reckon, he won't be using a quad SLI, neither quad CF....
He doesn't need anything above that really...
Maybe a Seasonic X-850 in case he wanted to add a 2nd GTX580 in future...
