If cost is not an issue, Alienware is good hardware. You should be aware that you are paying premium for the unique case and brand name however.

Best bang for the buck is to buy from a store that lets you put together your own non-brand computer. Unless you want to read tons of reviews to find the best graphics cards, coolers and stuff you could try and build an Alienware spec computer component by component and probably end up saving a few hundred pounds.

The Area 51 is a brilliant gaming machine, it's what it was built for, the Acer is just as good and probably better pound for pound than the Area 51, as for your old one, bin it.









oop's had a look at the specs, the Alienware has better GFX.

Well, that was fast.
Alienware? fast but very expensive for the mid to higher end.
If you don't understand what gos into them your best bet is to buy of course.
But a new fan until you can sort it out is worth the wait should you choose to do a build.
There are many things to take into account such as CAS speeds and timings for RAM so on and etc but worth the effort in not only price but the knowledge you gain from it.
Its simple really if a little time cosumeing, take a part and study its funtion and relation to the other parts to include all the parts that make up a mother board then when it all clicks just order and assemble.
Oh, and you might want to clear a space on your desk for head banging .. mistakes do happen.

Alienware assemble good quality computers. They are great for gamers with fat hands (too fat to build their own) and people who'd rather unbox than pretend they're computer geniuses. You'll pay more, but you'll end up with good gear.
