Default Opinions on this premade gaming PC?

eBay.ie: DELL ALIENWARE AURORA ALX-i7 920, 6GB, 2TB, ATI 5870 (item 170487896421 end time 17-Jul-10 15:36:45 BST)

Looks like a good deal to me. It's cheaper than if I were to build my own rig and has almost identical components. Except the hard drive is 4x as big and faster.

And it'd be less hassle than building one myself. Thoughts?

I wouldn't buy anything off of eBay, to many Thieves and Pirates.

I would stay clear of Alienware and Dell as well as eBay. My mom ordered a Dell a few years ago, worse computer i have ever seen in my life. It had 1 intake fan, that also happened to be the CPU heatsink. It had an 8800gtx, but only a 325w PSU.

Even if i lost both my thumbs in a horrible smelting accident, i would still be more comfortable building a PC than buying one from Del or Alienware.
