I don't spend enough time here
22nd July 2009
Alright for the past few years Ive stayed a console gamer cause i had no money and had to stick with a crappy rig that my work gave me for free. But now I've been given a big promotion so my question is what is the best rig that i can get for 4k i was looking at alien ware because they seem pretty top of the line. I also want a rig that i can keep a few years without having to buy a new card or more ram or memory so i can keep gaming.

You won't get a rig that'll last you for four years. The good news is, with $4,000, you'll have plenty of upgrade money.
Anything I don't give an example of, is something you can pick yourself
Case PSU - Thermaltake Toughpower 1000W Motherboard - EVGA X58 SLI Processor - Intel i7 920 Cooler - Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme RAM - OCZ 3x2GB (whatever brand) HDD - Some SSD, 1TB HDD for storage Monitor - 24" something
Gettin' hardware chilly

Well, the thing is with hardware that it WONT last forever. I would suggest you buy your own components and build your own rig. Unless you want someone else to build it for you there are people out there that build computers and set everything up for people for a fee (such as myself). I can guarantee anything you build will be MUCH cheaper and faster than Alienware.
YAY! 2000th post
I didn't make it!
For $2000 you can build an absolute top-of-the-line system, and it'll leave an extra $2000 to upgrade your PC for the next 4 years. If you build, it may be possible to get a top of the line system for $2000, but it wouldn't be as good as one you build. Everyone overprices their systems, especially if they are built right.
