Whatever you do, do not I repeat do not buy a alienware. I bought one when I was working at Dell and I regret getting it lol. Its overpriced and just a decent gaming rig, I should of went with Asus, they come with better graphic cards. As everyone has already stated you will get the best bang for the buck if you build your on.

I have stated that I am building, and if all else fails I am just going to get a Macbook Pro. Im trying to get all my parts ready before I go to camp for a month, I don't think I can order them at this point but I don't know. Is everything okay? Should I upgrade? Downgrade? Suggestions? Still trying to optimize price.

If you order from newegg, you'll get everything within a few days. If anything, they are amazing with shipping.

There's a few things i see if you want to drop the price a bit.
First off, how patient are you? Honestly, you could probably drop that ssd that you have there and still have pretty decent load times. With the cpu and the gpu that you have, the load time difference would only be.. a few seconds.

Secondly, the graphics card. the 670 is currently the top benching card out there( i believe) Beating out even the 680 and 690 in benchmarks, though the 690 has very few on some lists i've seen so, i doubt that's correct. but. If you wanted to drop say.. 130$ off your price you could settle for a GTX 570, which is still a beast of a card and can run pretty much everything you stated earlier on max with NO issues at all. Especially with the cpu you have.

Just those two would drop roughly 230$ on the price with not much impact. If you'd like the best of the best you can certainly do as you have, just my 2 cents.

I don't mind waiting an extra 10 seconds to boot up my computer, honestly I don't mind waiting an extra minute to boot up. So what would you suggest to downgrade to? I am really stuck on the GTX 670 as of right now, so going down to the 570 isn't too much of an interest.
