View Full Version : Good Gaming Computer?

I am saving up for a new computer...

I was thinking about Saving up for an AlienWare Area-51, but I was wondering if there was another good gaming computer for a cheaper price.

Whats the best for the best price?

Never get Alienware as their products are way overpriced. Try putting together your own custom computer. Much much cheaper :)

build your own, you get way more for your buck. you can make something just as good as an alienware for a fraction of the price.

well im not totally sure whats the best but i did haer that alienware is really good

If you dont know how to build a computer yourself, and you dont know anyone that could help you, Alienware is probably the way to go if you have that kind of cash to throw around.

I'd spend a few hours on newegg.com before you do though if you know anything about computers and put together a system for yourself.

Alienware is good if u got the cash, but tbh, they r heavily overpriced and i built my computer, which rinses the top spec alienware outright, and i spent less than half the amount. If you dont wanna build your own, consider some companies other than alienware, depends on where u live, if ur europe the try these:

http://www.ajp.co.uk << Better than alienware and EXTREMELY well priced.

http://www.meshcomputers.com (http://www.mesh.com) << Great all rounders and good performers for reasonable prices.

What ever one else said, build your own. Or if you've just won the lottery buy me and yourself, an Alienware one

Yeah, like everybody says, build your own. You have to do a lot of research if you don't know that much about it. You want to make sure that every one of your parts is compatible with every one of your other parts.

Building your own is just about the only way to get a decently priced gaming rig.

If it's just for gaming build yourself a Shuttle. It's small and you can bring it everywhere. Especially if you need your gaming comp for tournaments and stuff.

custom build

dont do aleinware unless you have 6000 dollars plus

01-21-2005, 06:05 PM

01-21-2005, 07:42 PM
Mine works good :)

01-21-2005, 09:50 PM

Building your own or getting someone to build it for your best way to go. If this is not a option look for something with graphics card and sound card, intergrated ones can not be upgraded so stay away from them. Also stay away from any thing you can buy at best buy. Dell's and Gateway's are your next lvl of computers. I hear falcons are great gaming systems http://www.falcon-nw.com/ . But a buddie has a alienware it runs great for him.

alienware r rippofs i use a sony vaio the new one... exellent man

02-06-2005, 09:42 PM
If you need to buy a prebuilt, I suggest Gateway or Emachines. I would do what some guys here suggested and build your own computer.

02-07-2005, 12:26 AM
Why cant you upgrade to a graphics card from intergrated?

02-07-2005, 09:26 AM
Same old... custom computer, you spend less money for a better machine... If you can not build your one, djust talk with a nice computer stor nearby and ask for help...

02-07-2005, 01:48 PM
if u got enough money to throw around then get the area-51 cuz ive never seen neware else where u could buy a 4ghz cpu but if u dont then build build build

02-08-2005, 05:19 PM
Ok alienware is awsume dont let anyone tell u diffrent yes they are overpriced but to someone who says that to u say F*** off buddy i got an alienware. But if its gonna be hard for the money buy off some idian joint for so cheap or buy off somewhere in the middle and get good deal.

You could make ur own but thats easy for me and most other ppl to say because we no how but if u dont dont buy all the parts and exspect to put it together buy a premade
