I'd say!!!!!

Especially for a case that they won't even show you the inside of.........

Alienware's gone downhill ever since they started offering rigs through a big box store (don't remember if it was wallmart, or best buy, or something like that).

Nope... was well before that..... :)
I have no idea why dell did that in the first place.... they were already making some kickass high-end systems both in the desktop and laptop markets.

They didn't want another competitor to buy them out ...

Yeah- big companies don't usually buy other companies because they want to have them so much as that they don't want them out there (AMD/ATI an exception)

In my opinion, the older cases were sexier. :|

But yeah that's outrageous, $400 just for a somewhat crappy case and a PSU.
