Yeah, it's true, in this case. I voted for voodoo because, in general, voodoo pc's are better built, aren't as overpriced, etc.

Im assuming the pixle pipelines. And onboard memory, and gpu clock rates, and overclockability.

I would go with voodoo just because their cases are so damn pretty. But if it was for video editing and whatnot then the alienware would be better.
