BTW, that Ncix price is from the system builder, using weekly sales and price matching, a few hundred bucks might come down from that.
Where on earth did you get that price for the Alienware? Did you configure by buying the hardware separately? I just checked and you can get the Area 51 ALX with everything you mentioned above and MORE for no where near $7500.00. And with a three year warranty. If you PHONE them and NEGOTIATE you can do even better.
