Default Here is How Bad Alienware RIPS You OFF!

Ok, I just entered to win an Area-51 w/ my purchase of BF2. I was looking around and I came across this:

http://www.alienware.com/product_det...de=SKU-DEFAULT

It has a AMD 3000+
512 RAM
And a weak 9550SE

Now who on gods earth would spend close to $900 on that P.O.S. when you can get:

AMD 3000 939 Venice
1GB RAM
6600GT

For like $500-600?

Freakin Alienware is the king of computer company rip-offs.

You want an Alienware rip-off? I threw in my PC into a customized Alienware at their website, and it ended up somewhere around $2800. I spent $1406 on my build.

It's called a free market mate, a company has no obligation to retail a product at any set price, just as you have no obligation to buy the product listed as said price from said company.

This thread is a flamefest waiting to happen, so I'll save it the trouble
