Why not? Can you elaborate on this further please.
for a start i have no problem with alienwares i have never bought one so i am in
no position to comment on alienwares quality yet some people round here seem to comment on products they have never owned or used so how can they judge the item the only thing they can realy say is they are overpriced but anyway
its your money and if i where gonna get a computer of that spec i would build my self much cheaper get a great feeling after finished oh and you learn a lot
as for the physics card , not that many games actually support it and you can still run games that do support it without it , personally for now i think it is unrequired due to the fact that notha ing is supported by it making it a waste of money

If you're going to get such a nice processor, get a better graphics card, like an 8800...

700 watts is more than enough for that.

Question Re: Power Supply

If you've been building for so long, wouldn't the components become out of date/old? lol

Know any good sites about building desktop computers in 2007/for 2008?

Yeah I used to have a 1.1 GHz Celeron, ran XP perfectly. It was fine with most games I threw at it too.
