I love this. This is the part where you fuckin dorks sit here and rip on people for buying Alienware machines, because you think you are somehow "special" for building your own machines.
I've been building my own machines, and countless other machines/servers since like 1992, including my gaming rig I'm typing on right now. Big fuckin' deal. I do it because I am INTERESTED in doing it. I happen to be an I.T. Director. At some point when I become disinterested in building my own, I will buy an XPS, Alienware or Falcon box. Why you ask? Why the hell not? They all run great, and the games I want to play work on them.
So what if they are a little overpriced sometimes. If money isn't a concern, or you have more money then time to waste geeking out on the net looking for your ultimate computer dream list of parts, then one of these pre-built gaming rigs will be more than good enough. (GASP) you can even upgrade it with non-oem parts later!!
Dorksquad: get over yourselves. You aren't cool because you build your own machine. If you think you are, perhaps you should step out into the sun once in a while.

He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.
