I'm looking to get an intense gaming PC. Please do not answer with "Alienwares are overpriced, etc." I was just wondering which would be better for games such as BF3, MW3, and Minecraft? How long would this PC last me, and lastly which is better OVERALL? Assuming I pay for the default parts and specs it comes with no upgrades. Thank you for answers ahead of time.

Aurora R4 if you want to get intense gaming PC . Get one with the 6 core processor + GTX titan black or GTX 780ti and you can play anything You want .

aurora is my pick. and dell doesnt offer titans as an option. aurora for one reason. its easier to upgrade then x51. you dont have to worry about what size gpu fits and how to mount a ssd so forth and so forth. also when you want to do a full system redo. just about any m-atx motherboard will work. so aurora all day

I own an Alienware ALX R4. I purchased this from Amazon for $1369.00 USD. It has the I7 3930K installed. I upgraded the Video Cards to Dual EVGA GTX-780 Superclocked, and upgraded the RAM to 32GB of Kingston Hyper X. I could not be any happier with this setup. I have not found a game yet that I can not play on Max settings with excellent frame rates. Good Luck!
