I know my question sounds easy enough but ...

I have been asked by a friend to find them a system that has a minimum of:
intel i5 processor, 6gb of ram, 2 pci express and 2 pci slots, usb 3.0, and esata onboard

when looking at pre configured systems, I can not find one pre configured with these minimum specs, I know building would be better, but that is not an option in this case.
has everything but out of stock and again building is not an option at this time

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? :pt1cable: 

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.
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
