Should I buy an Pre-Built Alienware X-51 or Build my own PC
I'm trying to decide right now should I get an Alienware X-51 ($699 Version) or should I build my own computer. I have no experience in building computers but I have a friend that could help me but his schedule may be to busy to help me over the summer. I want to try out building my own PC but I don't want to get myself in a lot of trouble by messing up the parts or doing something wrong. So which one should I get

Obviously, you'll have a more powerful PC if you build it yourself; however, you will not get the form factor of the X51 with a Self-Built PC. So it pretty much depends if you want maximum FPS, or portability/takes up little space.
I guess I could build my own PC but where could I get some kind of tutorial to build it. I could try Newegg if they have any.
I've got to say the video is really helpful I looked at half of it and it has some really helpful facts I'm going to need. So I've decide I'll build a computer. Thanks for the advice!
Great. When you are ready, fill out the sticky at the top of the new build section on how to ask for advice and we can help you pick your parts and make sure you are spending your money wisely for your needs.
I have built a few machines myself and I can assure you its better to build your own. No crapware, you get to pick the parts that will suit your needs and the most important factor... Its not a Dell.
Build you're own PC because you will get to choose the specific parts of you're needs and you can post if you're build if great, you can use pcpartpicker.com to organize you're parts/components.
