Hey, so I was planing on getting the alienware x51, the one with the i7, 8 gigs of ram, and the 660.
But I was planning to upgrade the gpu, since the 660 is the oem version. So I need help, should I Evga 550ti superclocked 1gb, or the evga 560ti superclocked 1 gb, the 560 is also more expensive. I'm planing to play bf3, cod(s), and some other games at 1920x1080. Will the 660 be enough to play bf3 on ultra at 1080p or should I upgrade? Thanks :)

scrap alienware. i can build a pc for the same price and it would be way faster

the 660 OEM is faster than the 660 retail just saying. but still, build your own

I would, except I don't know how to. So can you build me a pc that is about 1.1k and faster?

do you plan on doing overclocking or anything of that sort?

anyways. this will easily match the ailenware in performance and will feel way faster due to a SSD that i included

if you want it to be even faster, i can upgrade the video card once again but the 7870 can easily run bf3 at ultra

Looks pretty sick :) 
I'll try to overclock the gpu, but since im a novice, i'll probably end up frying the gpu. About how many fps can I get while playing bf3 on ultra with this card, and about many while recording?
Also, will some video editing also be good?
