They have at least 3 different Desktop cases. The Alienware FX LED lighting is a nice touch.
Ouch, now that would be too expensive :P

I wish alienware wasn't so overpriced.

Sorry to revive the thread, but what is CAS Latency?
Are lower values better?

The lower, the better. Unfortunately it increases as the timings get shorter. 4 is a good value. CAS latency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hey guys, could you help me find a good ram for me?

I want one with low latency, high speed and 2x 4GB. Preferably higher than 2000 MHz.

I don't like G Skill, i like OCZ and Corsair.

I've been very happy with my G.Skill RAM. Used it for 3 of my last builds. All been solid. Oh year, OCZ is getting out the RAM market altogether to focus on SSD's. So, I would focus on Corsair in your search.

If you want 2000Mhz or faster and you want at least 4GB DDR3 chips..you are looking at a CAS Latency of 9. Those are the only options I can find at NewEgg.

I suppose it does come down to preference, but in regards to G-Skill memory, all of them I have purchaces have been just fine.
As well as good customer support.

Personally, I really like them and it's now one of the first brands I look for, just due to past experiences with them.

Yeah, when I built my first machine with them, I took a chance. But they were solid sticks. On my latest build, they offered the best timings on my DDR2-800 (4-4-4-12)...so I went with them. They have been excellent. I bought these: Newegg.com - G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4D-4GBPI-B
