Hi guys,

I'm looking to buy a new computer that's relatively cheap but can play most pc games at decent settings (such as Rome 2 and elder scrolls online), would the alienware x51(the one hat costs £599) be enough?

Its specs are as follows:

•Intel® Core™ i3-3220 Processor (3.30 GHz, 3MB Cache, with Hyper-Threading Technology)
•Windows 7 64bit, English
•6GB1 Dual Channel at 1600MHz
•1TB Serial ATA (7,200 rpm)
•1GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 645

More about : x51 599 good

Enough though but it isn't worthy enough compare with a DIY.

Here is my thought: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/maxime506/saved/1XnP

It'll satisfy your need but has more potential compared x51. OEM computers are somehow more expensive than the same-level DIY.


Thanks a lot this is a perfect list but I don't know how to put it all together !

Well ask a friend for help or there are a lot of assembly videos (Type "computer build") on Youtube. It won't be difficult though.

Or, tomhardware has some guides too, find and take what u need to follow.

Never buy from alienware, they have terrible customer service and overprice the hell out of things

Compatibility Notes

Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.

Ok yes I have heard that alienware are overpriced so would it be best to either build my own or use a website such as cyberpower to customize my own and they can build it for me? because I can create a build on cyberpower for roughly same price as x51 but it is way better

also any recommendations for a good computer customization website like cyberpower?

thanks
