This is my second and I have aways felt Alienware is the best out of all the PC's I have had. I have had an IBM, HP, Sony Vaio, Dell, and a Compaq.
the only part i dont like is its your second. i havent had a computer break to where i need a new one since windows 2000 and i know have a XP with a brand new computer. i guess coming from you aleinware is good.

Is that your fake name for the fake family you live with. Are you a CIA agent or are you just having fun making us frustrated.

I will try to post up a picture, first of all i need to find a digital camera. we recently had a Cannon 3.0 Mega Pixels digital camera it broke for some reason i really dont what in the world happen to it. On top of that like most people, i custom build my computer parts. I buy parts and assemble them individually, so i'll try to get some pictures if i can, im thinking of taking a picture with my phone and sending i to my e-mail, but if i do that u'll see what is similar to an Avator icon mabey yet smaller (Too small). anyways i'll see what i can do.

For anyone intrested in buying a new computer, i highly recomend that you buy your Hardware online the resone is that for example you go to the store you see a Sweet computer eveything is there the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) the CPU (Central Processing Unit), and RAM (Random Acess Memory), ...ect basicly eveything a PC Fan would approve, anyways it cost about $3000 or more or less, you say WHY!?, then u figure out the lastes hardware is installed on this baby, you look up the same product online you see that hardware for alot cheaper, i mean ALOT.. (i'll give you guys some good websites for does of you who are intrested and are new to PC upgrades.), you buy all those same products online for about max from $800 - 1500. You wont regreat it, once again for those of you who are new does this trust me its worth the wait when it comes to shipping tho, cuz u SAVE BIG on BUCKS!!. anyways here are some websites this web site is lcated in California so if anyones from Cali, go here http://www.zipzoomfly.com the next one i recomend is http://www.newegg.com happy shopping all :!: :wink: .

If your from cali don't get it from those websites the TAXES will kill you. get it from here Monarchcomputer.com or just go to pricewatch.com and find what u need and make sure u look at the ratings other buyers gave the online store because that comes in handy when u don't whant to get riped off.

BTW I got my pc for about 700 about 6 months ago that would of cost me around 1500.
I know this because my causin got the same pc for that much from PCclub store

Since I'm a PC gamer first and foremost, first post goes in here :)

Athlon 64 3000+ (Venice Core) @ 1.8 Mhz
Corsair Value Select 1GB Dual Channel RAM 2.5-3-3-8
Connect3D ATI X700 PRO 256 GDDR3
2* 160 GB WD SATA HDD
DFI Infinity NF4 Ultra

Everything else not worth mentioning. AMD + ATI best ever, nVidia sucks (hope they can cut it for the PS3) and Intel is trash

So what's the reason for that? No reason I guess. Nvidia rocks though, however I do have a ATI card in my computer right now. I hope they don't cut it out of the PS3 and it's a good thing there's a 0% chance of that happening.

Intel is worse then AMD that's for sure! (gaming)

When I said I hope they can cut it, I meant I hope they will do a decent job. As fo why nVidia sucks, just this one story:

when nVidia "aquired" 3Dfx, they also got the Rampage GPU which in 2000 was comparable in power and performance with the G70 (7800GTX) today. BTW, the G70 is made on the Sage architecture. Sage was the GPU for the second gen Rampage graphic cards which also featured physics processors, but Vodoo 5 went down and so did 3Dfx, taking down the Rampage project and leaving nV to make a mess of things. If Rampage would of been launched, 3Dfx would of revolutionized graphics again, giving us Doom3 graphics in 2001 or 2002 and by 2004 we would of had Sage and HL2 physics as a standard, not as a ne tech. But 3Dfx sold out and nV just did a piss poor job at adapting that amaizing architecture that was the Sage. And just to show how incompetent nV is, Rampage was in design since 1997 in 3Dfx labs but never saw light because nVidia mass produced the Vanta and TNT and 3dfx had to downscale Rampage in order to put out Vodoo stopgap cards.
Otherwise instead of paying 600$ for a 20% increase every other 6 months for a GPU, 3Dfx would of had a 1 to 2 year development cycle with more than 300% increase in performance (compare Vodoo 1 with Rampage aka 7800GTX) and almost at the same price. So basically, we would of skiped from GeForce 256 to 7800GTX in 2 years without having to pay for all the intermediates.
