That looks pretty good. If your going to be playing the latest and greatest games though, you might want to get at least 3gb of ram. You can buy 1gb of ram and put it in yourself for about 25$, if you want to save money.

Also, that processor is pretty nice, but the quad core for only 50$ more is kind of tempting. More and more applications coming out utilize more cores. the E8200, might be a bit faster for certain things, but the Q6600 is more future proof, I think. If you don't feel like spending the extra money though, the E8200 should be fine.

The 8800Gt is a very nice video card too. It will play all the latest games pretty well.

just so you know "alienware" is dell now. there techs are dell i called in ones becouse a vid fan died at the end they said thank you for calling dell. that pc looks good.
the 8800gt is a good card just installed them on a friends pc with amost the same set up as the one you linked. it runs ever thing will. ifyour going to run vista use readyboost it does help some.
as with duo and quad core heres a good link might be of some help. http://www.tomshardware.com/2007/11/08/dual_vs_quad/

Hi. Dell XPS are crap, from what iv'e heard, But they are cheaper than any other gaming computer i know of! I think custom boulding one from scratch is quite cheap, as my friend did it a while back. Not sure if this is what you want to do though....
Alienware is very expensive too, but equals it out with great quality and performance.
You clould try Asus, but im not really sure if they are for gaming...
Sorry, i havent really been very helpful here!

If you are going to purchase a "prefab" gaming system and price is a major concern you might wanna check these guy's out.

I personally don't buy mine "prefab" since a great gaming system can be built for MUCH less.
Also, I have never bought anything from these guys so check them out first but I can't seem to find any sites that are more cost effective than this site.
