Just getting an idea for all of this because I'm clueless with building/buying computers

EDIT: You can find the specs a little lower down if you can't actually see it first time, took me a little while

The base model is awful for the price.

Give us a budget and what you want to do with it and someone can pick out some parts from ecollegepc.com for you. Much better use of your money.

Well I'm guessing 500-1000 euros, mainly want it as a gaming PC

The general consensus on the board is that Alienware is trash for the price, You could do a lot better with your money by another brand or by building yourself maybe? for Alienware a lot of the extra is paying for the brand and flashy lights.

Hmm right well thats ok then, I've found a site for custom PC building in Ireland. I'll play around with the options there then maybe I come back here and get a bit of help? Don't know when but sure I'm taking my time to see what's what here

The site is www.custompc.ie

really bad. whatever the computer's merits would earn it out of 10, you get -8 for alienware.
