Default Alienware without the price tag!

Alienware Case for 79.99 w/ 700watt psu is actually a pretty good deal lol.

But hurry up because this dela wont last long!

Woot : One Day, One Deal (SM)



A Regal Alien

OK, geeks. The moment of decision has arrived. Every time we run a pre-built PC up in this mug, you come swarming out of the woodwork to insist to one and all that you could build a better PC for less. You snidely sneer that only Grandmas and n00bz would ever let Dell or HP build their PC for them. You disdainfully disparage the very idea of pre-built PCs as a pathetic crutch for the technologically impaired. You talk and talk and talk.

Now it’s time for action. For calling bluffs. For separating the geeks from the wanna-geeks.

Now it’s time for the Alienware MJ-12 700-Watt Workstation Case.

The beings at Alienware brought every point of their extraterrestrial IQ’s to bear on the MJ-12 case, loading it with more bells and whistles than a cathedral full of parakeets. 700 mighty watts of power undergird big rear and front mounted fans (120mm and 92 mm, respectively). Behind the locking front door, you’ll find four hot-swappable drive bays, built for easy access and screwless upgrading. USB, FireWire, headphone, and microphone jacks are right out in front, too. With this kind of power supply and cooling ability, you’d best bring some serious graphics. Take it up to NVIDIA SLI, if you dare. No skin off the MJ-12’s nose.

Of course, this is all assuming that your walk matches your talk. And don't even try to weasel out of it with some limp whinge about how Alienware is owned by HP and is therefore lame. Are you prepared to stop trolling and start modding? Or did your typing fingers write a check that your skillz can’t cash? The Alienware MJ-12 700-Watt Workstation Case is ready when you are.
Warranty: 90 days
