It's not a bad system, but the 775 socket is already outdated. You're better off keeping the system tbh, I don't think you'll get close to what you're looking for. The liquid cooling is really the only thing that makes the system stand out.

Um either way, its not an old system and its quite good at doing what it does..

Not all people are looking for brand new computers, people by used cars night n day..however "outdated" they may be. This system is well worth what I am asking for it, hopefully soon enough someone will realize that, honestly i dont appreciate the posts telling about how im supposedly asking way too much and how my system is apparently not worth it..if you really feel strongly about letting me know these things, wouldnt it seem more respectful to do so via PM?

Anyhow, thanks for the input but really id like to reserve any posts in this thread for those who are interested, rather than those who are just critical

P.S. Incase people arent realizing, this system has the RAID 1 drive system, two drives, one operating. So if one fails, the other automatically kicks in and you lose nothing whereas with a single HD setup you would lose all. Trust me this shit is necessary. I had a single HD setup a couple years back, the thing went nuts one day, tried getting the info back from it, took it out and everything, got zip, TONS of my shit lost. So thats just another of the many things that make this system well worth it.

Yea, ive had 3 alienwares over the past 8 years. Very sweet systems. Cant come down much more in price though, im already at less than half of what I originally paid, snot like its brake pads im selling, computers dont depreciate in value much over a span of 6-8 months, specially with nothing wrong with them

If you're truly interested you'll be willing to pony up a lil extra to get a kick ass machine.

+1... Now that Intel Core i7 and NVIDIA GTX 4xx are out... Silent is nice, though!

Although you may have just bought this system 5 months ago, it is using hardware that is much more than 5 months old. Don't get me wrong, the 9550 is still a great processor and the GTX 280 is still a great card, but it really isn't what people are expecting to get when they buy an Alienware. Especially considering those components have been outdated for quite some time now.

It does have a lot of good things going for it, and your best bet is just throwing it on Craigslist and selling it locally. I would specifically advertise it as a WoW box. It'll be perfect for the WoW player who needs a new box to play the next expansion that will be just a little more demanding, as well as being quiet and stable and won't give any problems.

1300 might be a little too much to ask, which is why I suggest looking local. People will generally pay a little more if they can drive a few miles and pick it up from you same day.

It's a good system, and if I wasn't already building a new WoW box for my wife I would make an offer on it. Good luck with the selling.

Unfortunately, that's very true, especially when the socket itself has been obsoleted.

Its worth what im selling it for, sorry if you all think its obsolete. The machine works perfectly and no it has not degraded that much in its own value. Sure you can get a brand new machine fully decked out with the newest processors, etc. and pay like $2500 atleast, this is the less costly option with still pretty damn good performance.

I would call a computer "obsolete" if the hardware it had wouldnt run the majority of the games and programs, etc. that are usuable and playable right now, and with this computer that's certainly not the case.

I appreciate all the helpful "advice" but please keep the posts to actual interest only please, if you really feel the need to school me on selling my own computer, feel free to PM me. And believe me im not the only one that realizes this systems value even now, ive had several people from this forum and the N54 forums express that as well as one who actually is pending payment for this and is to get back to me. Im not just laming this system for far more than it is.

Thanks for looking all the same

Well if you don't appreciate advice appropriate for a "Feeler" thread, then you shouldn't classify it as one.

Just my $.02, not trying to flame or anything.

Yeah +1.

If you do research you can make an ownage pc for the same price that performs better.
