    I am in the market for a new PC (ever since Vista came out). I have
    been looking at Alienware. I see they have a quad core setup. Is
    this really needed? No, I don't play allot of games. Does the amount
    of RAM have any bearing on this quadcore processor setuP.

    Finally, is there any other option besides Alianware if I want t kick
    ass machine? I'd be using it more for music/video/internet than
    anything else.

    Thanks peeps!

    You could go with one of the high end Dells, HP's, etc. and get the same
    specs. But I think the Alienware machine would be about the same price
    and have better resale value due to its name/cool case. Are ya crunching
    video/music? Or just playing video/music? Because you don't really need
    a top end machine unless you're processing/crunching video/music. If you
    had like a $1000 machine, you may not notice any difference between that
    and a $3000 Alienware machine.

    Aliewnare is now owned by Dell.
    Do you need to know anything else about them?

    I would really like to buy something non-Dell. I had a Dell and once
    when I called support, I did not get a person from the U.S. I had a
    very difficult time communicating with her. I would rather get
    support in the U.S. and moreover, get a machine MADE in the U.S. I
    hate Dell.

    Can you offer an alternative? (specific, as in model #)
