  1. Hello since i cant build my own computer im looking to buy the best gaming pc on the market. I have been looking at alienware alx/aurora amd/falcon nw/voodoo pcs/velocity and others. But i just cannot figure out which pc is the best , since im looking to spend about 4-5+ thousand i really need to have some opinions on which pc is the best performing. I basically dont know if dual core is worth it or not and i most likely want the computer to have sli with at least 7800 gt nvidia cards. I really appreciate the help , hope someone can help me choose a computer thank you. Also im really liking the alx alienware if that computer is worth it which is better intel extreme or fx60?

    For that kind of money you could get two gaming PC's. It's crazy to spend that much on one machine, since it'll be out dated in a year or two. You're better off spending half that now and half on your next PC.

    The best gaming computer manufacturers are Falcon, Alienware, and All American. I perfer Falcon and Alienware. Try Alienware though, they are cheaper than the others, and make really good machines. Good Luck!

    I've never heard of them. Falcon computers uses Corsair ram though. They are the top of the line, but very expensive. I would buy from them if I had enough money.
