I agree. I had an Alienware M17x built to my perfection and it was about $3,300 to my house. It started overheating on GTA IV and after I was sick of the performance with what I paid, I sent it back to them within 30 days. I decided to build a desktop for the same amount of money with Intel (i7, best mobo at the time, etc). After 3 years my liquid cooling exploded over all my components and lost everything. On my second build now with AMD. Personally, for the money, AMD seems to be the best budget based computer. But damn did the Alienware laptop look appealing as hell against my Dell Inspiron 1420..
