Hey guys I am building a PC and I am getting a AlienWare tower for my tower.. but I need help. Can someone tell me good parts I can use for my gaming computer? Also I need a good monitor to add to it. I need some good parts to play games on Steam such as GTA IV, CS:S and more. Thanks!

    If it is a alienware tower... You already getting all the parts, that is what it means to buy a prebuilt tower. As for monitor any monitor pretty much, it is more about your preference, if you are getting a flatscreen, widescreen etc. Gaming consist about, three main parts of gaimng: - CPU - GPU (graphics Card) - amount of RAM Now, as said, Alienware prebuilts pretty much has all this allready. If you wrote your plead of help in wrong form please refine it, i am myself a little lost too with your question.

    Why would you do that? Tower looks so gay... Well that is just my opinion.

    Why would you do that. Its an excessive waste of money for what? So your computer can look like an alienware? Check on newegg they have sexy neon towers that are way cheaper. So it won't be like your a poser with a alienware tower but non alienware factory parts. As for the screen. Get something like 22" t.v. flat screen. They all come with vga ports and the composite ports for xbox and what not. Don't go getting a 54" because your graphic card will not be able to render that much.

    Do it, I can see that you have extra money to spend on cosmetics, not power. Have fun jacking off to your alienware. NOTE: The tower is the LEAST of your concerns, if you are a computer savvy person you would know that. Besides, custom built computers sometimes overpower alienware system of the same price since it's more focused on parts not cosmetics and streamlining.
