I used to run a home built gaming rig and it was a total cost of $1800 all together including OS, Moniter, Keyboard and mouse. I benchmarked it and it out benched marked a similiar Alienware rig but the Alienware rig cost was $4000. So yea it is cheaper, takes more time but just do research. On newegg.com people tend to write good reviews on parts so if a lot of them say it is a good product most of the time it is. If it is a bad product you will see that to.I had to quit using my gaming rig due to how much electricity it was using each month so I sold it off for $1600 and the computer had been done being built for almost a year and only dropped $200 in value from my investment. I switched to a normal laptop and my energy bills have actully dropped about $80 a month so just remember take into account for other costs before getting that huge gaming rig.
