    New Small Form Factor PC I just bought

    I just spent $1,500 on a new AlienWare x51

    Now, I ofc know I could of saved $5-700 building it myself, but given the size & weight of this pc, and the LED work I just assumed take the easy route.

    Specs:
    i7 4770
    GeForce GTX 670, overclocked
    2TB HDD
    16GB Ram
    BlueRay

    Weight: 13LBs

    One in middle is an x51 for a size reference.

    Waste of money, can't upgrade, etc, all for small form factor. Only upside is if you plan to carry it everywhere with you, but a laptop would work just as fine IMO.

    v1.97 - Cutscenes/Quests, Friend List

    That is a good laptop, but you can't upgrade anything, so in a few years, you will have to spend another 1500$ so you can buy the newest games

    I already have a tower, and a laptop.

    I wouldnt be able to build a SFF like this, and I wanted something for my living room. This will never be hooked up to a computer monitor.

    You can upgrade the x51... The 670 that I'm having put in it IS an upgrade. You're only limited by size, and power usage.

    Well I like playing games on a TV with a controller, but I also like modding / hacking games. Rather then buy a console, (something you truly cant upgrade) I went with a SFF PC.

    This PC has all the power I need to play anything on ultra settings, but still fits in my entertainment center.

    It just showed up in the mail. I installed BF4 BETA, ran it on ULTRA maxed out, and I still get an average of 70+FPS Even after the sky scraper falls.

    I've wasted money on dumber shit.

    I couldn't build a better small form factor PC myself. I have a tower. I wanted something for my TV though. (Converting from console to PC MASTER RACE only).

    In all honesty I think I only wasted about 5-600 dollars, and IMO... the time it would of taken me to build and figure out how to make a successful SFF on my own, is worth A LOT more then $500.

    Looks really nice and all, but honestly just a waste of money and the way you describe what you're using it for seems pointless.
