  • Got $6,000 spare cash?

    The new Area-51 ALX, introduced on Friday, uses overclocking, or the practice of pushing a processor past its factory speed setting, to elevate a standard Intel Pentium 4 chip to 4GHz. Because overclocking a processor can cause it to overheat, the desktop also includes a special liquid-cooling system devised by Alienware. Purchasing the 4GHz Area-51 ALX desktop is an expensive proposition for most consumers, as the machine starts at about $5,458.00.

                I've heard some *BIG* complaints about Alienware, the support sucks and the stuff just breaking on people and not getting it fixed in a timely manner if at all. Just stuff I've heard..heck you can mod a case cheaper then they charge anyway..lol..

                    Alienware blows.

                    I'd much rather build my own PC then go buy anything from them.

                      You could always go Dual or Quad CPU and not worry about overheating.

                        I have a client who spent $8,000 USD on one of their video editing PCs. During the first year, it was back at the factory three times. Warranty is only a year, and both factory installed SCSI drives have since failed and been replaced at my clients' expense. Total waste of money. And, as mentioned above, their support totally blows. And sucks.

                              Definately go Dell.

                              If it was me, I would build it, but Dell offers great warantys, great support, and decent setups. I like their cases more and more every time I have to work on one.
