LoL, Alienware? overcharge? never.. so £2500 isn't a good price for something you can outbuild yourself for less than £1000? (magazine article pitching a Aurora Extreme for 2.5k (at the time) against a custom built £910 setup) The custom build out performed the AE in almost every test done, fps doom 3 ( this was before hl2 ) 3dmark 01, 3dmark 03, COD fps, and I think it slipped under by 5 points or so on SiSoft Sandra performance test.
plus them alienware cases need a damn crane to cart around the place.. THEY're HUGE!
