yeah, I agree with exgamer, alienware is wayyy overrated and wayyy overpriced for what you get. buy all the parts you want and assemble them yourself. you'll always have the awesome people on this forum to help you out with whatever you need.

yes, he already knew that. but he needs a finance program! building comps is all nice and good, but you need to buy the seperate parts, and I doubt he wants to take out a loan if he doesnt have the money on hand.... but hey, thats what small buisness credit cards are for ( if you have a shop)

nope it wont..the AGP slot limits the x850xt pe's performance. it'll last a while but always knowing that its not as good as its PCI-EX counterpart, that would suck
