Build your own. Trust me, Ive done it, it saves so much money. Ask Toon about it. :p

I'm not sure about the converting to Pounds, but AlienWare is a good computer for gaming, but also quite expensive.

How you tried building your own computer?

Toon is good with that stuff.

If you're willing to build your own then I'll put a spec list together.

No kidding, £2000 might even be a total overkill.

My PC was £650 and plays loads of games at max settings.

Mine plays most f2p mmofps and mmorpg at max with no problems at all :)

Alienware is nothing but a scam.

I can build an Alienware myself, identical spec for about 40% less.

Let me go through each part and explain my choice:

Corsair HX Series 850W Modular ATX2.2 SLI/Crossfire Compliant Power Supply

850W gives you plenty of power for your rig.

1TB Samsung HD103SJ SpinPoint F3 SATA-II 3.5" Hard Drive

Gives you 1000GB of storage for any files, however - Windows and some games will go on the Solid State Drive listed later

Samsung SH-S223L 22x Internal Lightscribe DVD±RW SATA Drive - Black

If you're blowing out £2000 on a PC you'd want a DVD drive wouldn't you.

Noctua NH-D14 Dual Radiator and Fan CPU Cooler

The most expensive air cooler in retail - an absolute machine yet totally silent.

NZXT Phantom White Enthusiast Full Tower Case No PSU

A generally lovely case to work with, available in black if you hate white.

24" BenQ XL2410T LED, 3D, 120Hz Monitor

A 24" 1080p 3D monitor, need I say more? Well, yes. Buy another two and you can have 3-screen 3D vision.

ASUS P8P67 Deluxe Intel P67 (Socket 1155) DDR3 PCI-Express Motherboard

Great little motherboard, looks and performs the part.

Mushkin Callisto deluxe 180GB 2.5" SATA-II Solid State Hard Drive

I love my 40GB Intel SSD, you'll adore this 180GB SSD - use the space wisely. It's only 180GB but it's about 20x faster than the samsung 1TB.

2x EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked (SC) 1280MB GDDR5 Graphics Card

The second fastest nVidia card available, one is amazing - two is just insane. Register the cards at evga.de to extend warranty from 2 years, to 10 years.

Intel Core i7-2600K 3.40GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor - Retail

4 Cores, 8 Threads (Virtual Cores) - This thing absolutely flies and will overclock to 5GHz if your lucky.

8GB Mushkin (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 7-9-8-24 Redline Ridgeback - 996982

Top quality, hand test, high speed, 8GB kit of DDR3.

That should be an amazing little system right there.
