Alienwares are great computers, especially for gaming. Alienware adds in some of their own technology which makes the system overall better. The laptop you configured is very good, especially for a laptop. The only thing I recommend is upgrading to 2GB of memory if possible. Other than that, it looks great!

Cheers :)

Let hem do it because they use a specific kind of ram that is optimized to work with their motherboards.
