Thoughts on Alienware AX51R2-5725BK?

Hi everyone, here is a link to what I'm looking at:

This computer matches my price range. I'm just looking for a computer that will play games well.

I usually don't mind medium settings, as long as the game runs very smoothly.

Thoughts or counter-suggestions?

I think I could be a PC for the same price that is incredibly better...

Watch videos on building custom PCs (it's not hard)
Ask around places (like here) for part suggestions
Buy the parts
Build your own PC while following a tutorial
Save hundreds of dollars

That's a terrible computer for the price.

I may just not be seeing it but it looks like it doesn't have a discrete graphics card. Even if it does it's probably something like a 620. In any case an Alienware is never a good deal when anyone can build one themselves.

Can't see what GPU it has, only that it has 1GB of VRAM. For $1k, You could do far better.
