Hmmm you bought an Alienware?

First off you wasted a ton of money. You will never need more than 4gb of ram and you tripled that.

You went all out with a graphics card that you almost will never fully utilize.

How much did you spend on that?

Go to This site and check out all the games you can destroy.

Very nice rig, but it's way to overkill.

Hmm it will last years with proper maintenance and if you don't do anything dumb to it.

I would say about 4 years maybe before you replace anything for something new and not because it failed.

Those are my thoughts how about the rest of CF?

It's no doubt a really cool rig. However, I have to wonder how much you spent on the Alienware name. I would rather piece a rig like that together myself and save a few hundred dollars. I can't bring myself to waste money like that just so I can say it's a really cool brand name. That's probably why I'll never buy a Mac either...

Are you kidding me?!?!?
4 years for extreme gaming, 8-9 for just regular PC stuff and light gaming. Jesus how often do you replace your PC's?? I kept an old Compaq for eight years, ran like a champ for 7

Ya, but from my experience people who don't build computers or replace parts tend to not know how to keep them safe and have them last long. If something goes wrong they had the money to spend on a beast computer so why not do it again?

Just from what I have experienced. And building that computer would save so much money it would make your head head spin.

I tried to do an exact copy of that build on the Alienware Website. It came out to about $2800.
Haha yeah it would be a huge amount cheaper built, but it's too late ;D

Ya like I said I have seen people do this before and I always come in too late to say build it or I will and I will save you a ton of money haha. Oh well we all learn from experiences.

And check my PM i sent you to see what you need.

Just came into my mind, Dell bought Alienware so you are buying a Dell computer in an Alienware body? Someone correct me if I am wrong here.

You will now have to deal with Dell support and all that instead of just Alienware, just a bunch of butthurt.

So has the decision been made: Great computer, overpriced. Money better spent else where.

Last thoughts before I sleep feel free to add or change what I said.
