What you get for $999 at Alienware (Aurora 3500 model)

-AMD AthlonÖ 64 3000+ Processor (No mentioning of boxed version)

This is worth $120

-Microsoft« Windows« XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2

This is worth $100 (Although you can easily get a pirated version but meh)

-90-Day AlienCare Toll-Free 24/7 Phone Support (fucking bullshit)

This is worth nothing

-Alienware« 460 Watt Max Power Supply

No specifications mentioned, so nothing to show off with. That indicates it's a cheap budget fucker, worth $50

-Alienware« Mid-Tower Chassis - Black - May delay your order

Not much slots and expanding capabilities, worth $50

-Alienware« motherboard based on VIA K8T800 Pro chipset

Ha. Haha. VIA is a budget brand. This shit is worth $100

-ATI RADEONÖ 9550SE 128MB

This is totally laughable. An AGP card? Give me a break. SE is the cut down version of the 9550. SE is kind of like, sucky edition. Crap for gaming. Worth a lousy $60

-512MB Single Channel Low-Latency DDR PC-3200 at 400MHz - 1 x 512MB (They do NOT mention a brand name!)

Brandless 512MB Sticks come at $40.

-80GB Serial ATA 7,200 RPM w/8MB Cache

80GB? That's alot of storage....NOT! No brand mentioned, worth $60

-16x DVD-ROM Drive with Software DVD Decoder
They do NOT mention a brand name! These are cheap as hell, $25
-Integrated 5.1 High-Performance Audio with Digital Out

This is already on the motherboard, so it's a worthless mentioning, worth nothing.

-3.5" 1.44 MB Floppy Disk Drive - Black

No shit Sherlock, these come at $8

Microsoft« Basic Keyboard Black

Yawn, $10

Microsoft« Basic Optical Mouse Black

Big yawn, $10

To sum it all up:

Alienware Sells you $633 for $999!

Bunch of retarded fuckers.

Yea, but how good will it be?

You told me that you would build me one awhile ago. It wasn't too cheap though. Now go do it!
