  1. Build your own. NEVER buy an alienware.

    What is your budget? I will design a better build than both of these.
  2. my budget is 660 euro or in dollar 861.63 dollar
  3. What country are you going to be buying from?
  4. the netherlands
  5. +1000 to that alienware is just dell. Its overpriced junk
  6. It was good before it was Dell :(.

    Your build it better. Here is what to change:

    Get a PSu from Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, antec. (500w-600w)

    Get a cheaper motherboard and case.

    Use the saved money to get a better GPU (hd7870)

    I'll change the psu I think i'll go with a corsair one.

    Can you suggest a motherboard that has a am3+ socket and usb 3.0

    I love the desing of the case so i don't know maybe you can suggest something?

    The 7870 is a very nice one (and you get free games with it)
