    Yeah, I just punched in what would be good to buy right now.
    Personally, I'm not all that thrilled with RAID 0. After having a lovely pair of 60GXP's croak on me in a RAID 0 array, I could care less about the speed gains for the price of data loss.

    IBM Deathstars there. Raptors are very reliable drives.

    Don't ever go with Alienware (or any company, for that matter). You would likely get better results even if you found some guy you didn't know and had him build it. About $2000 US would probably get you better than anything Alienware offers.
    I have to disagree. If you don't care how much it costs, then DO go ahead and buy an alienware. they're built for gamers, espicially that double vid card thing.

    Wow, thats about dumb. Alienware is the biggest freakin' rip off there ever was. Also, a home built PC will always outperform an OEM system. That double video card thing is just a prototype/thing in the making. You won't be seeing it in systems for a good while still.

    You can build a largely better system for the price you pay for an Alienware

    The dual PCIe thing isn't available yet, and we don't know how well it really works. The motherboard is a dual Xeon board from Iwill. Now, would you explain why you'd buy an SMP machine for gaming? The only time I'd say buy a system is if it's a laptop...since it's kinda hard to roll your own there.

    ya, but i do care how much it costs. also, alienware as others said is quite a rip-off.

    Thats what I said. If you dont care how much it costs then get an alienware or perhaps a velocity micro (cheaper but from reviews still seems to be good).
