Help me make a choice. Please provide feedback

Please don't suggest I build it myself. I don't have the time, or the bravery to tackle that. I am building a computer on Cyberpower or customizing an Alienware Aurora on Dell.com. Please give me your unbiased opinion of my choices. The difference is the Aurora has a pretty case, a blu-ray rw , a bigger power supply and about $200.00 more than the Cyberpower choices:

Sniper case is a high rated ugly case.

  1. The build looks pretty decent for the pricing.. Am not a fan with pre-built configs but i too agree on the alienware looks being uber cool.. If i were you, i'd be going for to alienware.. It has the show factor.. BTW, although its a personal opinion when it comes to looks, but the Sniper is by no means ugly..
  2. Why do you want two DVD burners?

    The 750TX will be overkill for you, since even dual 5770s can run fine on quality 650 W psu. You could save some money by downgrading to a lower powered PSU.
