I'm in the market for a new computer [and also being a pro gamer? (My parents would NEVER consent)...what do i do?] and have come across a dilemma bigger than the one previously stated:

-Get a Mac Pro with Two 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon (8-core) and 4 x ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256MB
or an
-Alienware Area-51 7500 with IntelŽ Core™ 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz 6MB Cache 1333MHz FSB and Dual 512MB NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ 8800 GT - SLI Enabled plus the Ageia PhysX PCI-Express Processing Unit w/ 128MB GDDR3

I've always wanted a Mac but I do want a future-proof Computer that will serve me well and run games at the best "bang-for-buck" ratio.

Any other specs needed to evaluate?

XPS, they are very costly. But xps is what i have and use. They are worth your while, however considering XPS, Alienware, And Dell are all the same company, compare what you want and have dell build it. in other words if you want this really bad ass XPS or Alienware, get the specs then have Dell build it, it will be super cheap. wink wink

Ok here the deal i did the custmization on the XPS desktop and it was great and al seeing that I got a monitor with it buuuuut....it didnt have the K1 gaming network card and it went over the $3500 budget I mean i could bend a little but it still worked out to more money. I wonder if i can install those missing stuff hassel free? If I culd then I prolly will go with the DELL.

The big problem with doing things yourself is that you'll void your warranty. I'm not a pro at getting inside machines without anyone knowing, but if you have a problem one day that would normally be covered under your warranty... if you have altered the machine in any way without their blessing, they'll tell you to pound sand. So it just comes down to what you're willing to risk and if you're computer savy enough to not need any support down the road.
