Also buying an alienware is just ridiculous - you're paying an extra 20% for the brand.

Although obviously I'd recommend a custom build :p:. seeing as you're insistent on buying a built-for machine.. I'd recommend MESH. I've bought three PCs from them, their customer service has been great in the case of any hardware problems. They've also got a forum on HEXUS with some very helpful representatives, there's also an owners forum which is much more active with representatives, I think they moved from HEXUS to a diff forum, not sure. MESH are also dirt cheap compared to Alienware who'll sell you the same stuff for + 1000 pounds, I guess that's how much cash it takes to etch the Alien onto the tower. All that being said, I don't know what problems you came across in custom builds, I've also custom built from a young age and I've never had any big problems ... if you take care of your PC and keep all bills/register warranties, you should have no problems replacing anything in the event of a problem.

But yeah, if you want pre-built. MESH :p:.

Any PC with the same or better spec? Which you can build/buy cheaper from else where?

The fact it is an alienware doesn't make it faster.


Edit: as the above poster said Mesh give damn good prebuilds.

Mesh or PCSpecialist are the best around.

OP, there alot of bad advice here, dell/ccl do exactly the same thing, so IMO you'd be alot better off getting exactly what you want from ccl all put together for you (and without all the bloatware from dell/alienware).

also dell customer service is not great, and you'd pay alot to get them to do anything more than the basic warranty covers.

also it may be worth taking a look at beast computers.

places like OCUK, aria and novatech all do pre-builds which should be quite good (and ranging up to the high end gaming machines - and will almost certainly use better quality components than dell).

Custom built my PC at 13.

At 14, some RAM screwed up, and my HD required formatting for some weird reason - god knows what happened, probably too much porn.

Then my Network Card on the motherboard died... didn't want to buy a seperate Network Card and wanted to replace my ASUS A8N so I got another motherboard, but this required new RAM as my old RAM wasn't compatible, same with my CPU so I had to replace my AMD Athlon 3500+ (64-bit) with an Intel 6250... and now my PSU has blown up randomly and fried most of the other components... all in all, I am not a good custom builder I guess and would like to try having a prebuilt for once .

But thanks for the suggestions.

Also the XGS i7 Ultima looks perfect... warranty seems very cheap too.
