seems like the ibuypower is better.
but unless you dont have all those accessories, (monitor, mouse, mousepad, etc.)
then the alienware might be better as a package.

Is there any difference between getting a ATI 1GB Graphics card or an nVIDIA Dual 512MB?

I believe alienware is just a bunch of overpriced computers. Their labtops are good though.

And if I were you, I would go with a 9800GTX in SLI. Or a 8800GT in SLI. And if you want to, you could wait for the HD 4 series to come out either by the end of this month, or the beginning of next month.
AMD is Happy!
Intel is Pissed!
Europe is $1.45 Billion Dollar's Richer!
