It is a tad expensive but think about what comes with it. A 700W Alienware PSU. Im not sure who exactly makes their PSUs for them, but I think I remember reading that its a quality company, just not sure who.

Also, its alien in nature, but its not really ugly, just strange.

LoL, I still have a Full Tower from Alienware, got it as barebone as possible and a year later rebuilt what I wanted in it, next upgrade I think it will become my blue w/blue LED'd server, lol. A well built case (before they sold out of the US).

BTW I heard they were bought back US side, true?

I dont know what to say about this case, i think its flare is gone. I used to be in love w/ the alienware cases. Not so much anymore. :(
Still a decent looking case, but IMO Lian-li or Silverstone FTW!

I thought it was PC Power and cooling or FSP or someone.. should be a decent psu.

I bought the previous model some time ago on Ebay for $140. I think it looks better than that one. And is very useful cause they're very very very big.

Do they still route the front USB ports as extended USB cables that plug into the back of the motherboard? My friend purchased one back in 2003, and rather have a USB header that plugged into the motherboard internally Alienware had long cables from the front USB ports that plugged into the back of the motherboard. Luckily the Intel board they used had six total in the back, but that still seems ridiculous.
