I would suggest you drop the $450 on a new rig without an OS and just move your copy of XP over to the new one and use your old one with Ubuntu. If you would like I could list what specs I'm talking about.

If your monitor resolution isn't too taxing, you could probably play most modern games with decent frame rates on medium to high settings. Some may run OK with AA and AF thrown in.

Crysis will run with that rig using mostly medium settings (a few high settings...tinker with it), that resolution, no AA, might be able to use some AF and you should get frame rates in the 20's and 30's.

You need to be hitting 24fps or over,anything under that and you will notice it,like the above post says tinker with it,but unless you are loaded i would not go Alienware tbh,very over priced for what you get.

Have to fully agree here.

You can build a high end rig yourself that will equal the Alienware system in performance and save quite literally a thousand dollars.

When you do get a new PC you should also look at custom build sites like Ibuypower and CyberpowerInc for it. A lot of options to choose from and you are not paying extra for a name. Have bought from sites like them before and have not had problems.

You should be able to run any valve, source engined game such as HL2 and L4D.

Is it very necessary that I have to upgrade my system or will my pc make till dates games so-so(approx 24 fps +)....
Will Max Payne 3 run on my PC...any guess considering the fact that they make a huge visual leap from max 1 to max 2...

+1 except...
I see the memory isn't in dual channeled. BIG loss.
and that vid card is a crazy mismatch.

.. play anyway.

I saw somebody else try to justify the pricing of the two things... The prices actually came out sorta comparable, except...
All the hardware that Alienware was sub par... They used cheap ram, bad PSUs, etc... I dreamed up a single card gaming PC with an i7-920, everything was top notch, only cost 1400$.. THis excluded drives but thats not really a price issue..

Don't buy alienware unless you are too scared to piece together a system yourself, you will be happy you did!

AA = Anti-Aliasing. It's a technique used to reduce the appearance of jagged edges on polygons. There are several different actual methods used and you can apply it in different strength levels. Usually 2x, 4x, 8x and 16x. The higher the strength, the more it drains the GPU.

AF = Anisotropic Filtering. This is a technique that enhances the texture quality of objects in the distance. It is most helpful with repeating patterns to move from the foreground to the background such as roads and tiles. Again there are different methods and strengths just as above but the impact on the GPU is not as severe.
