So i have the alienware x51 and i want to upgrade it ive gone through and picked the parts that need to be changed in order for this to be done. I am wondering if you all think these are compatible. i plan on throwing a gtx 780 in but im not sure what the differences between all the models are. Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

I don't think you can upgrade the X51. It has a very slim case so it won't fit any aftermarket GPU

That is why im also swapping out the case as well as the power supply and mother board.

So you're looking for a completely new build, but you'll be salvaging the RAM and HDD from your X51 ? If so, what games do you mostly play and at what resolution ?

Mainly which game and what screen resolution do you use ? Different GPUs work better with different games.

So you want to play games with 2 1920x1080 monitors with 60 FPS and minimal lag at their highest settings with full AA ? You'll need a high end PC for that.

Can I have your PC spec's so that I can check if there's anything else to salvage. To check, you could run " Dxdiag " in command prompt

Thats what im trying to make this into, most of the parts im bringing from my x51 (cpu, cpu cooler, ram, hdd, disk drive) because they seem to be ok as of right now in this gen of gaming but my gtx 555 just wont cut it anymore. is there a way to add my dxdiag file to here?

Getting 60 FPS on Crysis 3 on 2K res. is not easy. Even the famed GTX 690 can't do it. The cheapest alternative would be the R9 290

You get 3 free games too


i thought the 780 was almost as good as the titan last time i checked :/

T-T so much scrolling, could you edit it out, I just needed to know the CPU and RAM

Anyway, here's my recommendation
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Motherboard: ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($82.55 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon R9 290 4GB WINDFORCE Video Card ($319.99 @ Newegg)
Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (White) ATX Mid Tower Case ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $542.52
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

But of course, if you have the money, you could go with the GTX 780 or higher, but 40 FPS isn't that bad. Buy yourself a nice meal :D

If you have bought the above and still have money, either treat yourself to a fancy restaurant or get this

( you would need a new PSU )

or look for the Asus GTX 760 Mars ( basically a GTX 760 SLI on a single card with excellent cooling, but you'll need a new PSU)

If you remove 1 hard drive cage, it would fit. I have the NZXT Phantom 410 too, and it fits my Gigabyte R9 270x. If you remove the hard drive cage, it improves airflow and gives the GPU more room. I'm sure it would fit.
