By the way, you do realize that others will also be able to attain the same performance without having to get a second mortgage.

DUDE!!! You can build a computer for $2,500 and most likely OUTPERFORM the $11,000 Alienware counterpart. If you don't outperform it, you will still be VERY CLOSE in performance.
