Ok so what´s the better rig?
I´m looking for PC that can take good graphic and have a good performance, i play ervything from old games like amnesia or old stuff to Battlefield 4, Ghosts, next-gen games.
But I want to play next-gen games(battlefield 4,Crysis 3, etc) with very high or ultra settings, also for making videos, because when you record a game it gets laggy, so yeah I would like the best rig.

Alienware for aesthetics, but a custom computer for performance.

It really comes down to warranty, if you can get all your parts from one store, and feel proficient at building it then yeah custom computer.

If you like alienware crap, and THEIR cases with special light show effects that make the less computer saveey whorship your case then whats inside (could be a Hyundai engine, but they don't care.) alienware all the way with premium send it back repair with maybe 1 year warranty on all parts, then alienware.

But it all comes down to how confident you feel, and how much your willing to pay.

Personally I would not get involved in an argument for your entertainment.You obviously know what you are on about so make your own choice.
