Upgrading prebuilts is useless, because one thing leads to another and all of a sudden you're dumping money into it..

New build FTW.

Edit: Don't listen to him, Alienware sucks (except that new monitor.. iSplooged when iSaw it.)

Alienwares suck. Terrible everything, especially quality, customer service, and pricing.

Build your own.

Alienware is overpriced. You can build a good unit similarly spec'd for a whole lot less.

Why do you repeatedly speak of nonsense in every server I go to?

To the OP:
If you seriously want to upgrade your computer, why not just build one? Parts to run decent games are relatively cheap and I'm sure that a lot of people here would be more than willing to help (if you post in the correct thread, that is).

Please don't buy alienware, I'll cry... to death! Wouldn't want that hovering around your conscience.

Yes, the 3 foot wide one. iSplooged.

If you could get a little more, like $700, you could build an amazing one.

you people ride the nutsacks of companies its rediculous. im not putting in a ****ing 8800gt because its not much if any better than the 3850 pro. and its 90$ more.
now if he doesnt play games that much he could just go for the 8600GT

this guys on a budget.

the gigabyte p35 dick sucking lips or whatever isnt gods creation to motherboards. ASUS is much better and has proved them selves much better.

AMD is a budget processor. not everybody wants intel nor do they want to spend the difference in price for a not really any noticeable difference in speed. sure your cute little benchmarks may say theyre faster, but will you notice it. not really.

You spent $90 on a PSU when you could've gotten the same brand just a step down for $50. That's all I had to see to know that you fail.

He doesn't need it

He could easily run a Q6600 and an 8800GT, both very powerful, on even the 460watt Xclio. There's no need for it.

And you WILL notice the difference between Intel and AMD. Clock for clock, the Intel will perform much faster. Whether you have used both enough to notice it, though, is obviously in question.

ive used a q6600 quite a few times. and ive used a 6400+

clearly, i know the q6600 is faster in numbers, but i honestly dont notice a difference. but say like that 5600+ to a q6600, yes i'd notice a difference.

im talking about not noticing a difference when it comes to a mid grade intel and a mid grade AMD.
