Opinion on this PC - Alienware

I know the consensus is Alienware is generally overpriced, but still well built machines. This one is discounted at over $400.

At this price point, is this a really good deal/PC? This will mainly be used for WoW.

  2. Appreciate your suggestion but I don't have a lot of interest in building one. Besides my extremely limited knowledge, building one requires paying outright. Right now I have a 24 month 0% offer from bestbuy, allowing to spend more.

    Do you have an opinion on the pc linked, it seems like a good PC for that price...but then again, I wouldn't really know. Thanks!

  4. Would you say it's a good PC in general? Would be able to handle most games on ultra settings? Am I getting what I'm paying for? I appreciate the help

  5. If Intel 8700k/GTX 1080ti is a 10, the Alienware is ~7-8.
