Got me beat on RAM and slightly on video card. Curious what they charged you for it.

Not bad...... I don't know why you didn't just paste your dxdiag in there though. Much easier to read.

What size monitor(s) are you using? Are you using onboard sound?

Same as mine except you beat me on memory, but I have a GTX 285, and I built mine by hand. (So different motherboard, etc...)

I'd really like to know how much the OP paid for it...... I reckon from Alienware you're looking at $1500.

Other companies will do a i7 920 (liquid cooled), 12Gb 1600mhz DDR3, GTX275 and 2 TB HDD for just over $1500 - you do pay for the Alienware (Dell) name.

Splyce, your right.

But building a computer, while being much cheaper, can be a daunting task for someone who has never done it before. Luckily, when I built my first one, I had a friend who was able to help and guide me along. In the end it was fun and I learned a ton, now I'll prolly never buy a completed computer ever again.

Strangely (and I've said this in these very forums), after building all my PC's for years, I wouldn't bother doing it again.

Once you get above a certain value, it's actually more cost effective to get a specialist company to do it for you. With mine I priced it up and found that I could buy it fully assembled and with 3 years warranty for cheaper than I could buy the parts.

I also got free delivery, games, a t-shirt and (wierdly) a laptop bag thrown in.

(x58 Mobo, i7 950, 12GB RAM, 2.5TB HDDs, Raptor HDD, GTX295, Fatality Titanium sound, 900watt Tagan PSU, Coolermaster Storm Scout - phew)

Sounds like you found a great shop. Going back on my statement, I imagine a time will come when I'm just too tired/busy to be bothered with finding parts and building. I don't even bother upgrading my current system until its so-obviously dated.

Nice system I still find it cheaper to build my own, which I just did...

AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE @ 4.1Ghz
ASUS M4A79T Deluxe MB
8GB Corsair PC3-10666 Mem (8-8-8-22)
ATI Radeon 5850
Corsair H50 Liquid Cooling
OCZ Vertex 32GB SSD
Hitachi 7200/64 2TB Hard Dive
Ultra 750W X4 Power Supply
Gateway FX2300 23" 1080P Monitor

All for about 1500 can't beat that, eats small page files for breakfast

Still have some more OCing to try, Runs at 4.2 but not quite stable, yeah what's 100 mhz, but I just like to push it to see what it'll do "Well fly her apart then!"
