  • OT: How does your system compare against Alienware?

    I was at the Alien-ware site(got linked from "Athlon 64 Proccesor!" post), and they had this thing where they compare your current PC with one of thier new PC's. So I tried it out, and all I can say is.........



    ...........I need a new PC:haha::cry:

    Go HERE and click the How does this system perform? link.

    EDIT: Make sure you do it against the "Area-51 Extreme" comp.
    Here's how you get to it:
    1st- open the 'Performance Comparison' window for the "aurora enthusiast"
    2nd- click on "List All Systems" link to find the Area-51 Extreme(it'll be the one at the top)
    3rd- Click "Compare Individually"

    Alienware PCs are awesome but I think Overdrive PCs are even more l33t.

                  overpriced crap that the only thing i would want one for is the case.

                  can build what they have done for a lot less and prolly stick it in a vapochil and oc it like mad to make evern better performance for less money.

                  only fools buy things like this tbh :]

                    I don't think so Alienware. For that kind of spec I would expect my computer to be raped into the ground. 250% performance doesn't sound too incredible!

                    There is obviously a big difference in the system's raw power but I think with all the new tech to come out (and mature) eg. 64bit technology etc.. I will wait.

                              Not too bad really , perhaps a better graphics card needed
                              currently Geforce Ti 4800.

                              Anyone recommend a card to improve my system
