I don't agree with that universally. If the person has never done it before and they don't have anybody there who can help them, this can be a very daunting task that might not turn out the best. I've built so many machines and helped friends with theirs that building a machine for me is like making a box of macaroni and cheese at this point.

I do agree that we can provide him with help and recommendations if he chooses to put the machine together himself...but I don't think it's wise to push him into this decision and assume it's the best solution.

However, I do concur that while Alienware machines are nice...for what you get..they are overpriced and you can do much better.
very true, but as many of us on here that have built them he should have no problem haha

basically what he is telling you is that $5000 pc from alienware can be built for about 1/2 the price, even other boutiques will build it cheaper, when you buy alienware your buying a brand not a computer.
