A little-known deal here guys. I just ordered an Alienware desktop gaming PC and was able to get £100 knocked off the price simply by speaking to Dell on the live chat. (They've currently got a £50 off deal on now, so only expect a MAXIMUM of £50 more off) I went for the following configuration: Aurora R5 base Intel® Core™ i5-6400 (6MB Cache, up to 3.3GHz with Turbo Boost Technology) Includes Hyper-Threading NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 950 8GB Dual Channel DDR4 2133MHz (4GBx2) 1TB (64MB Cache) 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 460W PSU Air Cooled w/ out ODD 1Yr Premium Support with Onsite That's config goes for: £826.20. They've currently got a £50 off deal on, bringing it to £776.20 . If you speak to their customer services (with the full intention of buying it, they may reduce it further at their disgression if you say that you want a higher spec but it looks a bit pricey). Enjoy your new gaming PC :-) P.S Before anyone says "Why don't you build your own" - I have done. I've built over 25 custom PCs and I just can't be bothered to do it anymore. I like Dell's warranty, their case looks incredible and the spec is nice enough, plus the warranty is very good and I get a legitimate Windows Pro license key. Nuff said.

No the GPU is perfectly adequate for me. I'm not a hardcore gamer. I use it for security reasons (cracking passwords) and some light-medium gaming.

That seems like a lot of money for those specs....that psu may need to be upgraded to support the current gen gfx cards.
banned#4
Sorry but that spec is awful for the money. You would get so much better going to a company like scan or Novatech
#5
You know, if you tell everyone about it, it's not a "secret" :P

On a serious note, this costs too much for what you actually get.

lol I could build a better spec, with better aesthetics for £600. Why can't people comprehend that Alienware are a rip-off. Do your research on price and components, before tacitly buying this scam.

edit: The case is ugly( in the eye of the beholder though),
Windows OEM keys are cheap as chips,
You get warranties on components regardless, so that debacle is invalid,

and building '25 PC's' has not made you efficient in how to spend your money. It seems like you're trying to justify it to yourself. But hey-ho. Enjoy.

A "top end" GPU Cost around £600 by itself. This is Hot deals not fantasy deals :p

Cost of parts ~£450 before windows. As with all alienware builds, total rip off.

Just doing a quick search on Chillblast comes up with a machine for 749 pounds (cheaper than this). Same processor and ram. However it has a newer and stronger graphics card and a primary SSD drive backed up with Windows 10 and 5 year warranty (2 year collect and return). Like others have said you are merely paying to say to people I have an Alienware PC (which is totally up to you). Working in the IT industry I know a lot of people who tend to laugh and shake their heads when someone brags they have Alienware. Everyone has an opinion, unfortunately just saying you've built 25 PCs etc doesn't mean you know everything. Otherwise I'd heavily doubt you would go Alienware when it comes to best components and value. I would say even if you only do light gaming etc, if you are spending 3/4 of a thousand pounds, surely you want to get the best for your money? A badge on the front will not provide you with that value. Hope you enjoy your purchase anyway and for anyone else, have a look at other companies, as there are some really good deals i.e Novatech like people have mentioned. Chillblast are fantastic when it comes to things going wrong and replacing parts etc. Hope this helps

Never mind building yourself just the smaller builders like overclockers and scan will do you a much better deal. For that spec that is actually a bit of a rip off, no deal.

Alienware build great machines and their after sales were brilliant. I do think they are expensive and now I build my own systems but if you have the cash then why not. Not voting either way.

Because everyone else is as good or better and cheaper too. Nothing special about their support.

Sorry mate but this is not the greatest deal. It's also a bit of a waste to have a case like that with nothing really in it.
I'm not going to jump on the anti alienware bandwagon as they serve a purpose. They do have a few configs of the R5 which aren't that bad price wise. For your use that you described it is a bad deal.

Cheaper and with a GPU that will keep you going for years

I know I could build a cheaper PC, but why turn this into an argument about how well I spend money? I clearly stated I don't wish to do so this time around and i'm happy with the price I paid for the service I get. Plus if you go onto the Microsoft store, you'll see it's around £179.99 for a Pro license. The fact that this includes a Pro license helped me make my mind up.

I spent 2 years of my life working for HP - but I didn't claim to know everything. Working in the IT industry means little these days - I know people who work in industry and they're absolutely horrific at their jobs.

I just shared this deal in case anyone looking for an Alienware machine wanted a little bit of a discount towards their purchase.

Sorry I shared the thing now, it seems people would rather claim I don't know anything rather than just see that it's the cheapest deal around for this particular Alienware machine.

No, it's not about how you spend your money. It's about telling other people that this is a good deal. It's simply not. Please don't take it personally. Superior systems are to be had for less. That's the bottom line.

As I said above, i'm just posting this deal for anyone who was looking for an Alienware machine and wanted a slight discount. I wouldn't claim this is the best/fastest PC for the money - it wont be. But for the people who like Alienware, they might appreciate the discount.

I had considered your point before posting, but that doesn't make it a value for money deal in the eyes of most, especially those familiar with computers. No offence intended.

Noone on here is having a go at you, certainly I'm not. Just the opposite, I'm merely explaining and helping others make an informed choice when it comes to buying a PC around this price. A PC nowadays at 750 to a 1000 pounds is quite a big investment for someone to make. If someone who didn't know much about PC's, was to come across your advert and read your statements i.e you've built 25 pcs etc then they might think straight away they should buy it based on your knowledge. I've seen people walking round PC World with their credit card out, with no idea what they are buying. I'd disagree with one point and say that after working many years with HP/Dell/Lenovo/Cisco etc that yes you do get people who don't know what they are doing (like in any line of work) but there are a lot that are very good at what they do. Like I said before it is a difference of opinion. However based on this deal being on Hotukdeals, is it a hot deal compared to other machines I could buy with better components and warranty for the same money? No it is not. If you specifically want an Alienware and don't want best value for your money, then Yes potentially its good for that person. Thanks for your reply though and comments, appreciate it.

Compete rip off, just put together a PC matching specs but with an Intel i5 6500 which is better for £486.93 could have been even cheaper if I chose a cheaper case and CPU. Don't pay for the overpriced Alienware logo, they haven't been Alienware since Dell bought them out.

Nah dude, this ain't an argument. I was hoping I could enlighten you through your ignorance. The fact that you responded with the R.R.P of the Pro key tells me everything I need to know about how you approach your purchases and what little research you do before buying. It's that tacit complicit attitude that perpetuates these OP scams, for hardware that's twofold over the R.R.P. Like I stated; enjoy your myopic purchase :)

Sorry I shared the thing now, it seems people would rather claim I don't know anything rather than just see that it's the cheapest deal around for this particular Alienware machine.
Nah dude, this ain't an argument. I was hoping I could enlighten you through your ignorance. The fact that you responded with the R.R.P of the Pro key tells me everything I need to know about how you approach your purchases and what little research you do before buying. It's that tacit complicit attitude that perpetuates these OP scams, for hardware that's twofold over the R.R.P. Like I stated; enjoy your myopic purchase :)

My ignorance :) Wow. I'm gonna have fun with you.

Do you buy the cheap £8-13 keys on eBay? You know, the Dreamspark keys? Mate - you haven't got the foggiest who you're talking to. I'm an IT Security Professional and former HP Security employee. I really wouldn't if i were you.

If you GENUINELY believe you're buying a legitimate key for that sort of money, you deserve everything you get. You do realise Microsoft are shutting down those kinds of keys as we speak? Have you read the latest Microsoft news?

Please. Don't come here trash talking when you clearly don't know the very topic you're talking about.

EDIT: I'd much prefer it if you didn't reply as well. I have no time for silly little arguments on the internet with people who believe they're buying a fully legit key that no-one else has got for £8. Have a nice day (no sarcasm meant)

On a similar note, I know nothing about PC's but need one for around £350.
I am not going to build one myself. My dell is 10years old and struggling.
Web browsing,photos, iplayer.
I lost 2years of my life palying TFC back in the day, so very little gaming.
Be grateful of any help/pointers.
