What is your budget? What games do you play? What online site do you prefer purchasing from like Newegg, Tigerdirect etc?

Around $2500, he plays Call of Duty, Cyrsis, Bioshock, Battlefield, any many more. I went on Cyberpower just not sure what I really need. I was leaning toward the Alienware but not sure if I need that expense of a computer.

CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1336 - This system is basically using the fastest LGA1155 CPU and currently the fastest single GPU on the market. There is plenty of ram and 2TB of storage. The GTX680 will be able to play those games easily. If you want to maximize your budget, you can manually add this SSD which would make the system a lot more snappier.

Looks pretty good but is it necessary to have 2 optical drives? Also 1200W is an overkill for a single or dual gpu system and the hard drive cooler is pointless.

The Alienware system is a lot faster because of the GTX690 which is a dual chip gpu.

Hi..
Even I also recommend you the Alienware as its gaming performance is very good. Alienware X51 has Intel i7 processor that makes it fast and has 1 GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 555 video card to enhance the graphics.

The Aurora R4 has the latest i7 processor and the GTX690 crushes the GTX555 easily in games.

CyberpowerPC Fang III GLC2020 with Intel i7-3930K CPU, 16GB DDR3, AMD Radeon HD7970, 2TB HDD, 120GB SSD, 12 x Blu-Ray Player Combo, Liquid Cooling, Fan Control & Win 7 Home 64-Bit

It's important to know that when you configure or buy such a gaming machine, you actually get to understand the basic specs it should carry, so everything runs smooth.

Either you're going to buy a preconfigured system or you're going to build it from scratch, there are several things that make a desktop destined for gaming truly the best in its class. Most of these things have to do with the specs that come with the computer, but there are some aesthetics things to consider as well when you buy or build your perfect gaming arsenal.
