I'm planning on buying a high end gaming rig from a computer company. I'm not entirely comfortable building one myself, but want a quality gaming rig backed up by great support.
I've read a lot of about http://www.alienware.com,
and have also looked into http://www.zenotek.com
. I went through both there ordering processes with the same configuration. Zenotek turned out to be $250 less. They also seem to have free shipping and include one free year of Norton Internet Security.
I like Alienware's cases, but the waiting time for the 7800GTX 512MB is a couple of weeks. Knowing Alienware's good reputation I would go with them, but I don't see an advantage in spending an extra $250 if I can use it towards upgrading parts on a Zenotek system. In my opinion both look like good companies, but what I think it comes down to is price and quality.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
