    Check out the one i posted down in source, it will play any game on the market to date & has all the maltitasking you could ever ask for 7 is only $499.99 Free Shipping!

    Well if your going to spend 1300 you mise well go for the Alienware they are nice but so expensive. Honestly i could build a bigger badder system than both of them for half the price on newegg but clearly your saying you can't order from there.

    I think that if you are going to spend that on a pc you should buy parts because if you buy these PC's you WILL be paying more than you need to.

    Just go to Steam and look at the recommended requirements and then go from there and buy the parts.

    Where to buy?

    I suggest Amazon and E-buyer they have very good deals on parts.

    Also you can crossfire which will massively improve you gaming experience.

    But if you really want to buy one of those PC's I would go for the Alienware.

    hope I have helped

    good luck :)

    That gladiator feathering is worth the price. The Alienware is the best out of all, but it's not worth the price.

    The Sims is surely exciting. It takes up extremely a lot of your pc memory yet its quite sturdy. additionally video games like Sonic and great Mario are sturdy. however the Sims is my well-known :D

    I recommend taking the time to build your own computer so buy the parts seperately because, those computers really are overpriced!
