I think he's putting a fast one on us. He just edited his post from 5K to 5.8K from the last time I saw this. Because 5.8K is way too much.

You can make an alienware comparable computer for 1500 or so. More if you want dual GPUs, but those solutions are normally a waste of money and kill your price to performance ratio.

If alienware is a waste of money, tell me what parts aren't.
