The computer is tiny, so I don't know if they use some... low profile cards or what. I can't really tell. It might not be easily upgradeable, but why buy something mediocre now and spend more money upgrading it in the future? The 999 option is the minimum you would need for a GOOD gaming experience.

The 699 option seriously can't play the games I listed!?

My current machine plays most of them and that's over 5 years old!

I have an Alienware laptop (M14X R2) and I absolutely love it, but I seriously doubt that their desktops would be worth the money.

Honestly, with a budget that high it would be foolish not to build your own. It literally takes a couple hours at most to build a computer, and you have much much better parts that will last longer and perform better.

Some of those are just as pricey as the Alienware's and their cases would be too big for my media unit.

Why not just customise one on a site and get a real cool looking case?

just search pc cases until you find one you like. I don't think its really worth buying an alienware.

This is where I got my pc http://www.dinopc.com/shop/pc/gaming-pcs-computers.asp

Those cases look good but as I keep saying they wont fit in my media unit.
