    That seems pretty OK... the only think I would upgrade a little bit is the memory - 1600MHz is enough for everyday tasks, but I would choose a kit with a little bit tighter timings at that frequency... like CAS latency 9 or 8...

    Oh, and welcome to the ROG Forum!

    Ha ha. Owned an older Alienware (P2 chassis) and had no issues.
    However, this is probably true of the new Alienware after Dell bought them. I heard some of the original Alienware founders started up a new boutique enthusiast build company called OriginPC.

    Once you build your own though, you won't need someone else to build them for you ever again, as there's no price or performance advantage as long as you have the right help. You are already getting some of that support from one community of superb builders and enthusiasts, here on the R-O-G forums.

    Be patient and have fun with it. We enjoy the journey, not just the destination.
