Both are a waste of money, build your own or have someone build it for you.

I agree with the above statements but if I had to choose I would go with the XPS.

With that money, you could get godly machines elsewhere.

Btw, if you do go dual core, don't bother getting a 4800+.

If you realy dont want to build one id go with the Alienware. In my opinion alienware look best and ive had alot of trouble with DELL.

Get the one you can get the best deal on

Its totaly up to you.

If you do end up having either Dell or Alienware build you one, do NOT forget to search the interweb for online coupons. Dells xps's have gone for as low as $1500.

That isn't always the best option though. I have found deals online that would cost you more to build yourself.
