Here what I have for 1686 USD$ estimated on IBUYPOWER with shipping.

Now, here what I get on NewEgg.

Newegg.com - Once You Know, You Newegg

for 1548 USD$ without shipping. Last time I cheked it cost me around 100$ shipping from them. so
total of 1648.


What is the difference between the 2 build? Why is the one from Ibuypower nearly the same cost for more? Is there some piece that are weaker then the newegg one?

And if anyone knows about IBUYPOWER, what is the difference between the desktop title.

Like If I take the 2012 Paladin Dr. I, and if I take the Gamer Paladin D817, the first one will cost me about 100-150$ dollars less for the same stuff inside. I don't understand?
Well, Ibuypower is a rip off if you know how to build your own system and have done it before. But to the OP, I don't really understand what you're asking? Do you want to build another system like the ones you mentioned? Why are you building one on Alienware? I'm lost.

Post #11 (with the Alienware build) wasn't from the OP.

So I want a new computer, if possible that will last as long as the first one.

Some of the components are less expensive than the ones you chose.
iBuypower's costs more because they charge a premium for putting the computer together for you.
Also, if you sign up for a free ShopRunner trial on Newegg you can get free shipping, just an FYI.

I hope I didn't cause any confusion. I was showing two DIY builds I did and what buying them from iBuyPower would have cost. The Alienware shows a system that's greatly overpriced for what you get. If it will help I'll edit the post down to nothing.

Ok I will take a look at newegg again. But I think newegg.ca don't have the shop runner thing. I looked all around the site and couldnt find it.

Will check for a better set up and post it.

and Ieatrazor leave your build there its all good

Sean W. if you checked my newegg and ibuypower last build, do you have any build thats about the same performance?

Thanks to everybody!

check out NCIX, i like them a lot, they have pretty good prices... and offer pre built systems.

if you stick with a 2500k and a 7970, you are going to be golden. if you keep those 2 components as a constant in any build, its going to be a good computer.

NCIX.ca will price match, so you can shop NewEgg.ca and have NCIX match it if they have a better price.
