cpu: intel/amd and how fast
hard drive: total size and how much free space
Have you done preventive maintenance? Try using canned air to blow out the pc, especially power supply, cpu, and video card fans. Have you Defraged the hard drive? Have you tried running a full checkdisk on your hard drive?

307 gigs memory, 269 free
I just recently cleaned my computer with compressed air, I do that biyearly
I've defragged many times and ran chkdsk. ChkDsk says it fixed some problems but nothing's changed.

Alienware computers have heat problems. It's a nice eye-candy design, but the design sucks for heat transport. I can say with 80% certainty that it's the heat prpoblem.
Buying a new computercase is sufficient. You don't need all new hardware.
btw, this is based on own experience.
I had an Alienware computer, but I didn't like the 50 degrees celcius at all times, even in idle mode. So I wrecked the case and gave it some breathing room in a hamstercage, the maximum heat produced is now 38-41 degrees.
I can almost guarantee it's heat, that's what I want to tell you.
