Default best pre-built company

im looking to buy another computer in 3-5 months.... i dont feel like building another as i will be on base. price is not a problem, i want to buy the very best computer i possibly can.

i was looking at alienware, but was wondering if there is anything better out there.

thx

didnt see how much they really mark up the price haha, my computer now is 3-4k haha, built it for 1.5k

might bite the bullet and build another on base, what is the very best of the best right now? anything new and great coming out?

also, planning a dual or quad gpu system.... just cuz really... also i would like water cooled since i will have a roommate and needs to be as silent as possible.

If you want to have peace of mind, then paying the premium for a solid warranty is not such a bad idea. The markup is really just for short term profit and is necessary to cover parts and the shipping costs in the event something goes wrong. ‹berclok is currently going through a site update to include the new Intel i7 processors and tech service is fantastic compared to some of the other big guys.
