If you really don't want to/can't build a custom PC, that seems like something you should do. Of course it would be cheaper to custom build it, but that's how everything is. You really do get a lot of sweet stuff in that package, and if you have the money I'd say go for it.

NO WAY. Don't buy that from Alienware. Alienware PC's are good, but they are so far overpriced it's not even funny.

Here let me explain this to you this way.

AU - 5567.99 - 300 MIR = 5267.99
That's 3,864.60 USD

You could very, very easily build that same PC for under $3000.00 USD or 4,089.00 AU. IF you don't have teh knowledge to build you're own, well don't worry, (TF-Members) have helped hundreds of people just like you, BYO and save money. Just get comfortable here and start using the search function. This will bring you directly to many, many threads were your questions will be answered. If you can't find your question, then start posting threads asking questions.

You're best bet would be to stay in this Section.

Good luck

BTW - XP Home with a highend gaming PC isn't a good choice. XP PRO.

JEEEZZZ let me change my opinion again... its almost $4000 dollars? nevermind me telling you to get it... its not worth it at all. i mean unless your super rich and money is not at all a factor.. then whatever it doesnt matter.. but if you care about the money. do it yourself.. you can make a better and cheaper pc than that alien ware... and also itll be fun to make

I live in California, an area that Newegg taxes, so I got a $70 tax. Sucks. Maybe I should consider buying somewhere else. The shipping was over $40.. so thats $110..
