"Alienware X51/i7-Looking good, playing good running hot"4.0 starson by Bernard_Manning
Pros: All in one for gaming - probably not quite right there for the really high end gamers (dont have any of those games). Buit should cover us quite nicely for a while now.
Cons: Runs hot (as expected).
1) Runs Hot (but as expected).
2) Risk? - Early days / New model - no longevity / MTBF / living with it reports - gone out on a limb - an expensive limb.
Summary: Just the ticket (so far)
Old machine needed a serious upgrade, or ditching everything (apart from the shell) and building up from scratch. Though I know a bit its enough to get it wrong and end up spending more than an X51 would cost.
A bit more expensive then I'd like, but now I have seen the future directions, and its not a gaming console.
Witcher 2 (Enhanced Edition) is probably the most demanding game we have at the moment runs like a charm at one notch below may graphics (but should look at some tweeks - it may run at good fps even at the top setting afterwards).
Now we can start thinking about looking at some of the more demanding games out there.
