If you haven't bought it yet... I suggest you look at other PC's first.
There are some awesome PC's you can build yourself, with getting double the performance for the same amount of money. Don't jump into gaming with an Alienware because they seem cool and fast, because you can build your own, very easy, and get better performance for less money.

Also, it's very hard to upgrade cooling in the X51 because it's such a small case, it doesn't fit any aftermarket coolers..

Don't waste your cash on an Alienware. Build it yourself and get a faster system for the same cost.

Well, if you already have it..
There isn't much room for normal CPU coolers, so it would probably only fit the smaller low profile fans.
If you would replace your current CPu cooler by a slightly bigger one, you would have to lose the plastic cover that directs the air to the back.. To compensate that, you could install 40mm (or whatever fits) fans into the back raster that pulls the hot air out... however, I have no idea of your stuffed PC has any room left to connect these fans to

Alienwares are not junk when you get them for almost 70% off! My brother in law works for dell, and he only paid a few hundred for his. haha

Haha I got my Dell XPS 17 that way too. He gets a regular 17% discount. He gets an extra 10% on one purchase at xmas time. He gets bonus 5% performance based discounts throughout the year. Then there are coupons. Then there's an extra 3% for financing(12 months same as cash), and of course, free shipping!

That would probably be the only way I would buy a dell. My laptop is an Asus. :)

I've been really happy with my XPS, but yeah I would never pay full price for one. Mine was $2000 before all the discounts. I did get the fastest i7 available, 16GB RAM, and pretty much all of the maximum upgrades. My only complaint is it has 3 USB ports but they're all on the same back left corner.

Not much that really needs an upgrade, to be honest. Depending on the power supply, maybe a faster graphics card if you are not satisfied with gaming performance. Should be able to upgrade ram, and add an SSD. CPU wise, you are just fine for quite awhile.

I have the R2, came with a 645 w/ 1gb, 8gb ram, 4th Gen i7 4770. I put in a reference GTX 760 with the 330w psu and I have had ZERO issues with it. I have not had a single problem with my X51. I play most games at High or Ultra settings. I'm playing Titanfall on High right now with V/sync and 16x AA and I'm getting a solid 60 FPS. I love my Alienware, first computer I ever bought that wasn't a piece of crap in 6 monthes.

They dont overheat Never, and people who built X51 are Pro not kids 21 years old they are people of dell top tech company in the world, people who cant afford alineware will make up lies. i got one and i play Titanfall ultra, BF4 Ultra, NFD rivals Ultra and with all games Stable FPS Caped to 60FPS. Never had heating problem and never had any problem, and once i wanted my wifi to be changed Dell came to my house next day morning and changed it for FREE. and for your information my wifi was perfectly working i just tasted them :D .
