Geez, I can whoop up on any game out there, and my system cost me $1000 or less, not including the monitor (and who buys a new monitor when they build a new system???). If you're spending $2000+, you're one of those 0.5% that needs to have the latest and greatest, and isn't willing to wait 6 months for the price to drop, or just doesn't know where to buy it!!
IDC analyst Roger Kay said there is plenty of growth potential because modders are not as price-conscious as average consumers and profit margins are much fatter.
OMG! ALIENWARE! Where can I get one of those cases? OMG! I have to have it! They R so ub3r l337!
From what I remember, the original Alienware case was a Chieftec Dragon... and thenthey went to shit. I have always thought way too much money was spent of Alienwares... I wait, patiently, for the day the company gets bought out, or goes bankrupt...
We do have some truly "godlike" modders here... you all know who you are Great find... nice to see the "enthusiast" community is finally getting recognition! Granted, might not be that accurate, BUT, recognition is still recogntion!

Okay, I'm the first to admit when I forget something, and I had completely forgotten the original original case. My bad.MeanieMan said:You are both not old school enough to remember the original Alienware cases, with the hydraulic front panel; but the 2nd case for which you two remember was a modified Dragon, and the current Predator is a modified BX. The ALX series uses a modifed Koolance case.
