So I've done research into the Alienware AX51 and I found this on Tiger Direct. The price is amazing and the speccs seem pretty good. I was suggested to use a website that checks my speccs and tells me what games I can play. So I used Game-debate.com and it told me that I could run BF3 on mostly high setting, which I am fine with. So, what do you guys think? Anything better that can maybe run it on ultra for 200-300 more? And no, I oficially decided I will not build my own, its out of the question now. Thanks in advance guys!

Yeah, that's not a great gaming system, and the slimline case will really restrict you if you want to upgrade in the future. For gaming PCs you're usually better off building your own, you can get a lot more performance for a lower price. Most prebuilts come with weak power supplies and weak graphics cards that are considered entry level at best for gaming. There are some prebuilts with decent gaming GPUs, but they usually go for $1200 and up. To run BF3 on ultra, you probably will have to spend even more than that for a prebuilt.
If you insist on getting a prebuilt, and want to run BF3 on ultra at 1080p or similar resolution look for something that has a Radeon HD 6950 or GTX 560Ti. Note that you will pay through the nose for such a system if you go prebuilt, probably $1300 to $1500.
