He said he paid about $2300 for it later on.

He should have spent $130-1500 on an amazing rig and wouldn't notice a difference.

$2500 I think he said.
Alright I will give you what I'm thinking, and what probably everyone else is thinking.
That computer, if it works probably, is BEAST! It's price however, is scary overpriced.
Basically, the specs are good, the purchase, however, is crap.

Wow, OP you paid about a grand too much. You're paying for the Alienware name, that's all.

I meant $1300-1500 but you know what I meant.

But ya buying alienware was a bad decision. Anything goes wrong you have to deal with dell now.

I think the OP has the idea, guys. - He overpaid. He will no doubt enjoy his purchase but next time will hopefully consider a custom built before jumping to assume price means performance.

As long as you are happy with it, that is all that matters.
So why did you ask others to rate it if you were getting it either way?
