Oh god I like you !

I built my rig on the course of 1.5 years , drop around 2k in it (USD).

Specs are :

Speccy is a great monitoring programm but contains flaws :

My ram is actually ddr3 1600 mhz (g.skill ripjaws series)  
My Cpu is overclocked to 3.8 ghz ( on the stock cooling)

All this in a Sentey Optimus Extreme Division Tower Case.
I only got picture of my unfinished built taken last year.

Some of the last part I received here you can see the ram and a 3TB NAS drive

Edit: Found a recent picture I sent my Friend.



AZIO KB501 L70


Nobody possess this mouse , Insanely good tho :
viewsonic elfin x8


Everyone has this headset : Turtle beach earforce P11

I may have to look into those speakers. How much do you like them?

I have the same one they are freaking awesome: soubd quality is a good 7/10 as long as you keep the volume control under 60%.

Subwoofer is really powerful for a 5-6 inch ( can't recall i'll edit later)

All around 9/10 for the price, can't get any better

I am going to have to give a better review but its because I have the Sound Blaster ZxR. It pushes nicely and I rate them at a 8/10 and the sub kicks nicely.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Intel Core i7 @ 2.50GHz 43 °C
Haswell 22nm Technology
16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)
Alienware 0MPYM4 (U3E1)
Generic PnP Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz)
Intel HD Graphics 4600 (Dell)
4096MB ATI AMD Radeon R9 M290X (Dell)

Thomas C. I suggest if you plan on getting Alienware next time to just get an XPS system. Dell owns both and the only differences is lack of lights and glitter, no alienware logoing, and price is a lot cheaper. More bang for your buck and since you are on the road then no one is really seeing it anyways

I guess I was going for the reputation that alienware had as designed for gaming.
3 laptops ago I had a dell inspirion and had heat issues using the best GPU available for it while the reviews of the alienware I bought next remarked on how unusually cool it ran, which was true.

Still, will certainly keep it in mind three years or so from now when it is time to buy a new one heh.
I tend to wait til either my current system cannot run a new game I really want to play or I start having issues.  My previous alienware was three years old, a year out of warranty, and the radeon GPU died.  It would easily cost me $500+ to replace it with a used one (no new ones available, the system was too old for any support).  I decided that since parts were starting to fail, it didn't make sense not to go ahead and replace it.  At least this time I got a 3 year warranty and got them to throw in for free 3 years accidental damage coverage as well.

Hmm just went to the dell website and tried to match an XPS roughly with the alienware I have, component wise.

Seems the closest I could come ended up with the xps having a slightly more powerful processor, a 32GB SSHD in addition to the 1TB HD, a 2" smaller screen, all for approx. $200 savings.

Was just a quick check though and no review comparisons or independent performance reviews and such. will certainly do a lot of research comparing dells best gaming system versus alienware. Yes, I know dell owns alienware, but my understanding is that they operate as separate entities (ie alienware are not actual dell computers with a few additional bells and whistles and cute logos).
then again, maybe I am naïve:)

Everyone is going to have their own opinion on what brands to go to. You have to factor in what you care about most price, performance, and customer service. I gamed on my MacBook Pro, for over a year (I don't recommend it, they aren't built for that). However, if some asked I would stand up for Apple, again your paying for branding and case design, but you are also paying for excellent customer service. For example when my Mac fried they replaced all the components for free. The unfortunate issue with Alienware is you are mostly paying for branding and some case design. Yes their stuff is nice, but you can get equivalents cheaper else where. The best thing you can do is research. Decide your price range then Google top rated laptops, or particular components that are important (gpu, cpu). You can get list rankings for individual components. Then go to Tiger Direct or New Egg and you can usually get it cheaper there and purchase built laptops. You could even stop by a Best Buy with the Black Friday sales coming. From my understanding Dell (and Alienware is own by Dell) has excellent customer/tech service and while I don't have a MSI laptop, I have an MSI motherboard and it's great. MSI is very highly rated and here I have a link for MSI laptops on New Egg. New Egg MSIThat expensive laptop for $1,850 would be over $3,000 at Dell without the newest graphics card. Anyways, sorry for the extreme wall of text and happy shopping!

Dell owns Alienware.... the XPS line and the Alienware line are exact same rigs but different cases....

I agree black friday is a good time. Also do not forget CyberMonday deals

All in all you want a good gaming laptop. Do your due diligence and research. I am not biased towards any dell products as I do not own one since my last laptop which was an XPS, and now own a CyberPowerPC rig which I am extremely happy with and my experience with them was EXCEPTIONAL customer service.

Operating System
Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit
Intel Core i7 5820K @ 4.50GHz (6 real cores, 6 HT cores)
64.0GB Quad-Channel DDR4
AsusTek X-99A
Acer B326HK (3840x2160@60Hz)
2048MB ATI AMD Radeon HD7870 LE (Tahiti)
512Gb Samsung 840 Pro (OS Drive)
~32Tb of storage spread over 8 other drives

I do a lot of engineering simulation, hence the crazy amount of ram (I run out a lot, believe it or not!) and could use a new video card (I can't play games at 4K, just 1080P) but otherwise a nice rig. Hoping to pick up a GTX970, because it would be reasonable for light gaming at 4K and has CUDA, which is great for scientific/math computing.

The 5820K chip also encodes video 2x to 4x faster than my previous i5-2500K, which is pretty amazing.
