Re: Need help please
I personally would go with the AlienWare; even if you customize the HP to have "better specs" than the AlienWare, AlienWare uses better parts. You can be safe with the HP on processor and video card. Other than that, it's bad generic parts (RAM, Hard Drive, Sound Card, Networking).
For instance, you could customize the HP to have 1GB of RAM, however it won't tell you what KIND of RAM it is. I'm not sure if Alienware will; however, I know the parts that Alienware uses are better regardless.
If you've got $900, you could build yourself a really nice computer as well; but it all comes down to what you're interested in.
I've kind of gone on a tangent here, but bottom line is I would go with Alienware if I were you
