I got that by finding this msi motherboard: "P67A-GD80 B3" that has what I need
but can not find any systems that are premade with those built in.
So, question ... is there an easy way to find premade systems DETAILED specs somewhere somehow?
or can anyone here suggest a system that has those minimum specs
I have no problem "customizing" a system (ram & processsor) to get what I need upon ordering, but again ... not knowing if it meets EVERYTHING t I need prior to customizing is my problem.
thanks in advance
PS: for example, the below is what I get looking at tech details for an alienware, no esata, pci slots or usb 3 is mentioned anywhere, no motherboard model is mentioned to look up specs ... I really think this should be easier than it is.

Here's two options which may prove worthwhile, both boutique builders. CyberPowerPC iBuyPower
You have quite a bit of control in those places to customize the system as you see fit and the prices are more affordable than Alienware.
Hope it helps
