If you feel up to it, you could always order parts and build your own...

Yeah if you think your up to it you can build a sweeter computer than any alienware for around $1500. If you want to do this I suggest you go to Computer Micro Center if you have one near or go to there online store. They have great prices and help.

With Alienware, you are paying a lot of dollars for a fancy case and a name, neither of which does much but increase your bragging rights. Jot down the specs of the Alienware computer, and price a computer with simular specs at Dell.
You can also decide to order the parts yourself, then either put them together or have it done for you at a local shop at reasonalbe cost. Two advantages of this is that you get precisely what you want (brands, performance, etc.) as well as all user documentation.
