Need advice about alienware, and the specs.

Diablo 3 runs quite well on far, far worse than a GTX 670, it's not a factor. The GTX 670 will play any game currently out fine, as well as most upcoming games for some time.

Are you sure you don't want to build your own? If you are getting a prebuilt then Alienware is a fantastic option but building your own you would be able to get a 770 or 780 in there for about the same price

Windows 8.1 has fixed a lot of the original gripes about 8, ie. the Start Menu


...is exactly the same in 8.1 as it is in 8.

I do not trust myself with this kind of money. I know I can get a better card, but if the 6700 can run Crysis 3 with 1080p and minimum AA, I will be happy.

Most games I want do not require what Crysis needs. I.E torchlight 2, diablo 3, Painkiller, Max Payne 3.

I want 1080p at it's best settings.

Max Payne is more demanding than you think considering it is DX11.

Tessellation, AA, AO all take it's toll. I am not fully maxed with a 680, but near it. Game looks perfect on a 23" minus 8x MSAA anyways. I use 2-4 and it's fine.

So it's not going to optimal for 1080p? I thought it was a decent card. o_O I'm confused now. I saw a video of Crysis 3 running 1080p on high settings with the 670. I am on the phone with Dell now.

I guarantee that TC will regret his purchase.

Really? Will I not be able to run MP3 and Crysis 3 on 1080p like the youtube videos?

Can I get some more opinions? Since next gen consoles aren't BC, I want to play my favorite games in 1080p highest settings.

Max Payne 3, Crysis 3, I want Diablo 3, Left 4 Dead 2.. and i'm not sure what else.

I hope it plays next gen games as good as the xbox one.
