Get it for free??

I would probally take the alienware.

If I am aload to do what I want with it, I would either sell the whole thing, and then build my own, or get a different case, and sell the alienware case (I don't like the plastic) to make a profit probally.

no, to keep IOW which would you want to use most.
personally I'd take the voodoo only for the fact that fully loaded it costs as much as a car plus they set the water cooling all up for you I'd be afraid to spill the coolant on it....

Falcon Northwest, they are customizable all the way. I could get it laser cutted and engraved, I would deck that thing out to the max.

Falcon, yes, Falcon. I have no idea why Alienware and Dell would even be in the list in the first place.
