At $400 a month you will be saving a long time for that setup!

No need for a FX57 = waste of money. Get a SD core 64 chip or a FX53. And if you intend to buy this prebuilt you better keep saving. Alienware is a ripoff. Build it yourself at www.newegg.com and save money.

Computers are so easy to assemble these das you can't mess up. Peronally I would say got for a +3700(San diego core), some decent cooling. Get only 1 7800gtx since 2 is over priced and over kill at this time. Get another one in a year for $300. You can build a good computer for around $2000 from newegg and it will own the alienware.

Yeah, atleeast try asemble yourself. You won't screw up. You can get all the information needed online in about 30 seconds.

That way you won't be spending way too much, and will also save time saving.

Alienware would probably charge a lot more than that. If you don't want to build one [heck I didn't build my current one], I recommend going with another company, who will probably have equal if not better PCs for much less money. I'm from the UK so I don't really have any PC sites to recommend to you :?.
