Question Best Gaming PC?

Hi! Im Fyr.

So my previous PC, (The HP Envy M6) just crashed for the 5th time. HardDrive issues. I have lost all my stuff 4 times now ;-;. I know. Why didn't I start to back up after the second time? Duh. Anyways, I had this warranty plan with BestBuy that after three repairs, I get a new computer of the same specs, of any brand, or a gift card of the price of the computer, which is 800$CAD. Now, I know it would be wiser to get a computer of the same specs, so what do you guys think? Any brand, any cost. Oh, and I am NOT custom building, because I can't get a warranty on them. I am currently looking at these:

Alienware 17 Full HD Gaming Laptop Details | Dell Canada

Alienware X51 Gaming Desktop Details | Dell Canada

I was also looking at a Mac, but I don't think that is worth gaming on. The only game I really play,is Minecraft, but I use HD texture packs, and I also use some mods, including optifine. So what I'm asking is, what do you guys thing I should get? and remember, no custom builds, and it can be any brand!

Hi! Welcome to ComputerForums.org!

My pref would defiantly be the Alienware 17, as it would likely be better for minecraft. Plus, its portable, which is a huge thing with me.
The other one really looks very similar, so I doubt you will see much difference. But, it not being portable would be a problem when comparing them side by side. The specs line up, and 17 is a laptop.
But thats just my preference. You will see a huge difference in opinion between different people, so try picking what is right to you.

You are comparing 2 different kinds of computers.
The only one who knows what to pick of those 2 are yourself.
MOBO: Asus Maximus 6 Hero - GPU: Gigabyte GTX 980ti xtreme - CPU: I7-4770K - PSU: Corsair AX760
RAM: Corsair Vantage 2x4GB - SSD: Samsung 840 Evo 512GB - Case: NZXT H440

Depends on what you want. A Laptop is certainly more mobile, but has a bit less power than the desktop. In any case I wouldn't recommend going with alienware, because they are a little overpriced (you have to pay for the brand name).
