I figure I am doing my part to help the US economy, and I don't even get a rebate check. I ordered a new Alienware machine, so for anyone thinking of buying from them I will let you know how my experience goes. They say it will take several weeks to get because only one guy builds and tests the ALX level. I have bought from Dell several times but not from Alienware. So far I can say the customer service is better and the tech support is a lot better (I called their tech support a few times with questions before I ordered the machine). I am aware this is much more computer than most anyone would need but I will be using it for many different things in addition to trading. I am also aware Alienware charges a lot but I am not equipped to build one myself, I want good tech support, and I couldn't find anyone else that offered this level of system. I also purchased two of the new 30" NEC monitors, LCD3090WQXi-BK. I could not find another 30" that did not have known issues so I decided to take a chance on these. So far I can say they work quite well, they are large (as in thick and have a large footprint) and give off a lot of heat but that is common with all 30" monitors. The 2560x1600 resolution is very nice. Here are some of the specs of the machine: AlienwareÂ® P2 ALX Chassis with AlienIceâ¢ 3.0 Video Cooling System Cooling: AlienwareÂ® ALX High-Performance Liquid Cooling Acoustic Dampening: AlienwareÂ® Acoustic Dampening Graphics Processor: Dual 1GB ATIÂ® Radeonâ¢ HD 3870 X2 â Quad GPU Technology Processor: IntelÂ® Coreâ¢ 2 Extreme QX9650 3.0GHz 12MB Cache 1333MHz FSB - Overclocked to 4.0 GHz Memory: 4GB Patriot EP+ Low Latency Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz-2x2048MB Motherboard: AlienwareÂ® Approved X38 Motherboard Includes onboard Wireless-N, PCI-Express 2.0, and DDR3 memory System Drive: Extreme Performance (RAID 0) - 320GB (2 x 160GB) SATA 1.5Gb/s 10,000RPM 2 x 16MB Cache Optical Drives : Dual Drive Configuration - Drive 1: 20X Dual Layer Burner (DVDÂ±RW) w/ LightScribe Drive 2: 4x Dual Layer Blu-ray Burner (BD-RE, DVDÂ±RW, CD-RW) Sound Card: Creative Sound BlasterÂ® X-Fiâ¢ XtremeGamer High Definition 7.1 Audio Network Connection: Dual High Performance Gigabit Ethernet Ports Network Connection: High-Performance Integrated Wireless 802.11n/g/b + Access Point Power Supply: AlienwareÂ® 1000 Watt Multi-GPU Approved Power Supply If you trade 15 ES it is a mere 17.3 points to pay for it. No one here may be interested in this level of computer or monitor, but I would be happy to answer any questions if there are any.
