Best gaming desktop = Alienware x51?

Is this the best gaming desktop for low price?
Or can i get a cheaper desktop with the same performance by comparing it myself?

I would like: Intel® Core™ i7-4770 processor (8MB Cache, to 3.9GHz with Turbo Boost Technology)
And a NVIDIA geforce GTX 780M 4 GB GDDR5

Usless you guys suppose something else.

Thanks

More about gaming desktop alienware x51
  1. if you want to find the least expensive gaming desktop with a 4770 then you'd be better off building your own computer
  2. Alienware is simply a Dell computer with a space creature face and huge price tag slapped on it
  3. So are you talking about a laptop or desktop? You listed a mobile graphics chipset... Honestly, the 4770k is for all intent and purposes over-priced for a gaming Cpu. Save the money, and get the 4670k, because hyperthreading isn't used much for gaming right now.

    If you want a desktop Pc, you will always get a better Pc for less money building your own. And the best part is, it's fun and rewarding to play using something you put together yourself. Also a good skill to have in the future(for building your own pc again).

  5. What about the graphics card?
    Titan or 780?
    Processor
    Why a 5th generation instead of a 7 th generation?

    1500$ for all that work and a weakker processor and graphics card?
    2000$ was my final prives for the alienware x51?
  7. You could change the processor to a i7-4770k if you really want it, it would only cost you an extra $100, but it won't make even a slight difference for gaming. And how is the GTX 780 weaker than the GTX 780?...
  8. I think this is a good device for the money. A faster processor might actually be a good idea.
