    this is good for me, but the problem is they are only selling pc cases, not pc gaming setups, no monitor, no keyb,mouse,headphones ...

    it was the main reason i loved aw gaming setups.

    now u can only have a fancy case



    btw, i know logitech did mouse and keyb and they were aw branded with different design. i like it this way.

    when i buy alienware, i want alienware design, and i am glad logitech or roccat are in the back, but i want alienware design

    Past Alienware also didn't have their own manufacturer. Rebrand monitor, microsoft intellimouse and keyboard, case from chieftec and assemble materials from different motherboard and gpu vendors etc.

    Alienware rebrand original Chieftec dragon, for refresh they put the ribcage bodykit on it. Predator 2.0B (my chassis) also is a rebrand + bodykit on a generic Chieftec case.

    Oh, and to make sure you spend money on their overpriced motherboards, AlienFX won't work on 3rd party motherboards without the Jumper trick (area51 r1, aurora), and they have software blocked 3rd party motherboards on new AlienCC drivers.

    Dell wanted 600usd on new R4 Aurora motherboard (MSi X79MA original OEM is 200-250usd), and new ones on ebay cost 140-200.

    Derp.
