Actually, the ALX is only $5000. Peter added some expensive parts to it.

Why do you hate them? Isn't it logical that they'd hate you? From their perspective they have an inferior machine, that cost more, and have no idea what parts are in it. So actually if you think about it and all of us could afford to buy pre-made systems. We wouldn't know the joy that is, building? Am I right?

Because, the parts that are built and suggested by many people who have used it before, knows that it will perform greater then a prebuilt/premade computer.

You cannot tell me that this pc does not look the business. I mean... omg. It most certainly is stunning. I don't care how over-priced it is, it looks different that anything we typically build.

It does look good, but you can do it yourself, with less money. Alienware was selling that case for $300-400, by itself.

Just paint the inside black, and do the wire management.

you mean the one I posted in the wire management thread, or the one I'm going to mod?
I still have to wait until the PC-A70 comes out in Australia.
