Horrible deal.

For that price the system should have at least a GTX680.

what can you expect from alienware stuff? the brand itself adding itself to the price. btw i'm interested with the case internal arrangement.

The airflow in these things are alright, however, the machine itself is, as was pointed before, absolutely terrible price/performance. It only caters to small children and nothing else.

My table + SSD's + Delta and Nidec and Sunon fans > that machine.

You better listen to this guy's opinion he has a 20" monitor that can divide native pixels. Keep saving man I'm sure you will be able to buy a new PC someday...

I probably need to take a pic of my Viera 32' H-IPS.

I'm sure it cost me just as much as your entire machine.

March 29, 2013 | 12:45 PM - Posted by Justin Anderson (not verified)

You have a 32 foot monitor! I don't believe a word you say troll. The Viera brand is for HDTV's jackass. So unless your talking about a medical grade monitor shut the fuck up no one cares. Maybe I should take a pic of my 32" Viera HDTV. Probably worth more than your current rig...

March 29, 2013 | 12:59 PM - Posted by John Doe (not verified)

Yes, it's a TV.

Do you want me to take a pic of it?

And then some of the other things I have laying in here?

You stupid little kid, you aren't understanding the words I'm using properly.

And no, it's not worth more than my current rig.

That's hilarious you make me laugh so hard is it sitting next to the 20" panel that can display ANY resolution?

March 29, 2013 | 01:32 PM - Posted by Justin Anderson (not verified)

I don't need a picture of your TV. I have a 32" Viera, but I use it as a TV as that is its purpose. I have a actual monitor, but unfortunately mine can't divide native pixels :-(

If you had a single clue about these things from the ground up, then you'd have known that it can do a fairly good job as a monitor.

Go suck some more of my weasel.

Your eyes must really hurt from looking at those giant pixels. Maybe that's why you can't understand what I'm typing, or can your tv display ANY resolution too. I love how you named your clit weasel, bitch.

March 29, 2013 | 03:39 PM - Posted by John Doe (not verified)

It maxes out at 1920x1080 at 60 HZ, unfortunately.

Neither does my LP2065. The LP2065 can't display those kind of resolutions either actually.

You need a CRT to do those kind of tricks.

March 29, 2013 | 03:51 PM - Posted by Justin Anderson (not verified)

Thanks Captain Obvious but your still full of it. CRT's have a maximum resolution too, all depends on dot pitch. You don't have to lie.

March 29, 2013 | 03:54 PM - Posted by John Doe (not verified)

I'm not lying you dumbass.

I'm currently running a Pana Viera 32' H-IPS, and whatever the stupid crap you throw at me is going to change that.

GG.

March 29, 2013 | 04:20 PM - Posted by Justin Anderson (not verified)

I kinda feel bad for you, it sucks that you can't afford a real monitor. Maybe you're just to stupid to understand dot pitch and the inaccuracy of your post. So shut the fuck up and kick rocks troll.

March 29, 2013 | 04:46 PM - Posted by John Doe (not verified)

I actually kick ass, not rocks:

Only dell would call a system with a 660 in it a gaming PC.
In fact its an average PC that can play an average game, averagely.

Like the case design though.

I work for dell and thier break/fix support team. You guys want to know who buys these machines. Well-to-do older guys that care nothing about building their own machines, or have built machines in the past (and the builds didn't go so well).
Also they would like to have warranties with their computer. Guys paying upwards of 3k when the machine was new, then i show 2years later to replace their mother board and or videocards. They seem to have a smile on their faces as i'm leaving...

That is one of the worst reasons to buy a prebuilt system.

A system you build yourself, will not only be cheaper, but will have a better and longer warranty.

When you buy prebuilt, you are paying more to have a short and inconvenient.

When you build a PC, you are getting a lifetime warranty on the RAM, 3 to 5 year warranty on the motherboard, 3 year warranty on the CPU, around 5 year warranty for the hard drive, also around 5+ years on the power supply.

Overall, when you build a PC, you are not only getting longer warranties, you are also getting the ability to just send a in the bad part, and not the entire system, risking one of those consumerist.com horror stories of someone sending in their PC (including one about an alienware), and the company not replacing a bad dvd burner, but instead, reformatting the hard drive.

Overall, just build a PC and save.

NAILED IT. 35yr old Computer vet. First computer was an Atari 1040stxe, many, MANY moons ago. I have been getting paid to build, sell and service computers since 1993, nvr mind all the "hobby" stuff I did before and during that time. Just ordered and Aurora R4 system and am eagerly awaiting it. As far as my reason's, as you said just tired of putting shit together myself, fingers crossed for compatibility and after purchase support. Paying a brand premium was NOT an issue, Priced other systems (CyberPower, iBuyPower and Building it myself) Since I MANAGE a computer/electronics store at this point in my life I compared both retail and OEM versions of components that I can buy AT COST and the Aurora still came in at the best price by nearly $800. Don't hate what you don't know, and don't talk out your ass just cuz you think your l337 by building it yourself. Building a computer is by no means difficult, I taught my 12year old how to assemble and ready a computer in a single afternoon and unlike me his interests and hobbies are FAR from computers and electronics. I know this is an old thread but whatever. The system I purchased is an UNBELIEVABLE value, and I cannot wait to get it. Deft out.
