The only difference, in reality, will be the price you pay.
If you enjoy tinkering on your own. Buy the parts seperately.
If you want a fast system, with good support(albeit maybe a little slower than Dell due to your location)for top dollar(ie. the best value for your money) then use NCIX.
If you want a show-off system, with great support, an awesome case and top-end components(all of which you can do with NCIX aside from the case) and don't mind paying the "alienware premium" then by all means get an alienware. They are great computers
I personally have the M11x because it is sexy and awesome. If I had the extra cash I would get an alienware machine myself too.
I recommend before you buy anything, post the specs you are looking at from the websites, and the pricing. Many here will help you and make sure you're not buying into something you may not ever need/use.
Don't forget the Alienware ALX type cases are a $1000-1200 unit. Those things are 100% unique, and friggen awesome. (IMHO)
If you choose Alienware, get the lowest ram option you can tolerate. Those items are the easiest to replace yourself. It will save you the huge premium they charge for those items.
