Ok so my buddy calls me up all upset because he said he couldn't play any games it was all glitchy and looked horrible so i told him to bring it over. Non of the drivers where installed at all WTF is that normal for Dell? It didn't recognized that there was a video card installed, so it was running off the boards GPU. I've always built my own computer so i have never bought a pre-built one before but i thought the purpose of a pre-build pc was it was all ready to go other then updates :mad: It was like they slapped it together put windows on it and said ok its ready to go. lol

I got it all squared away for him and it all seems good now but i would think if someone spends $1400 on a pc it would be ready out of the box wouldn't you?

Specs:
i7-4770
8GB RAM
2TB HDD
270x
Windows 7 64bit

Yeah that sucks man. Good thing you got it all squared for him. Can't imagine how they shipped a PC with no drivers installed? LOL.

On another note, your buddy over payed man. Always call in to a sales rep when you go alienware. Here is what I got for $1350.

X51R2
Windows 7
i7 4770
16gb ram
Nvidia GTX 760ti
2tb HDD
AC WiFi + Bluetooth combo

If you call in you can pull some good discounts. Also this was a ready to ship model. The sales rep also gave me free overnight shipping. I had my x51 2 days after I ordered it!

yeah i was trying to get him to just get the base model and upgrade what he wanted when he could too but he didn't want to lol. Sounds like you got a good deal though. That's what i did and i think i'm only in my around $700 so far. Still got prob another $600 to go for what i want to do though.
