Which is better Vigor or Alien Ware?
Its not so much a question of 'better'... a PC is a PC is a PC, no matter who tells you otherwise. an Asus P7 board is a P7 board whether its in an Alienware case or a Lian Li case... what makes one PC better than another is how recent the parts are and the configuration of those parts in context to one another. Also, the configuration in context to use.
My brother wants me to build him a firebreather... to play everquest I.... and chances are I could build him a PC with older parts and it would be 'just as good' because of the task.
lastly, and I really can't stress it enough - never buy the newest stuff because it's only newest for a month or so. Give parts a chance to be placed in all sort of PC configurations, read reviews on how they perform under various setups and then buy what you want.
But to answer the question - mainly you're buying a name. You more or less asked "what's better: CK or DKNY"

If I were you I would build my own for a fraction of the price. Check out the website How Stuff Works: How to build a computer for more information. If you build a custom machine your computer will be better than either of the computers you listed above and cheaper.
Well i prefer Alienware
Alienware is a great computer for gaming if you don't want to build one, but it is really expensive.
one you learn to build on the cheap, heard of fry's?. some people i know build powerful top of the line pcs for under 1000$ but i think you have to know where to look for the stuff cheap and pay a friend to build it if you have one that does that kind of thing. if you choose alienware i heard they have limited options for upgrades.
You got to go custom. The web site above will help you find evenything you need to build a computer better than Alienware for a lot less. Computer building is easy. If you can hook up your computer you can hook up a motherboard no problem.
Building a computer both gets you better quality as well as a better price. Just remember to make sure that the components you buy work together.
alienware was just bought by dell dont get a new alienware get the older kind
i hear custom made computers are pretty good
Do not buy an alienware! If you are not comfortable building your own computer then I suggest buying from ibuypower.com

Mines custom. Cost me about $2000 worth about 4 or 5.
btw how do you add a sig?
I could make a better computer than either of those two companies for a lot less money. With one hand tied behind my back and blindfolded.
I work at Computer MD and there are some great computers. I have a custom for gaming because it was cheaper then Alienware and it's still great. I also like the new line of Vostros personally. Alienwares are nice I mean they are really nice. The only problem is that they were bought by dell. =( Go with a custom if you can.
mmm preferably you might as well make your own computer if your going to buy an alienware or as a matter of fact any kind of computer that's for gaming. The reason is because even though all the companies are great and all, you will have more sense of accomplishment plus the ability to upgrade when you feel like it vs having to say ugh... its going to void my warranty huh? IMO alienware rox but their over priced is all.
