Key Features:
Intel CPU AMD Graphics Water-cooled
System Specs:
  • Asus P4C800e m/b P-4 3.4 Prescott Proc, 600 Watt p/s,XMS 3200c RAM 2g,Soundblaster X-FI Platinum sound,ATI X800 Pro Vid,TV Capture card,2 80mm intake case fans for hard drive cooling
Performed Mods:
saw the other guys Alienware case mod for a window.sorry bro,but kinda tacky,i tried to keep mine using the same symetry as the case as a whole.The proc. and the vid card are water cooled with Thermaltakes bigwater system.
I realize this isn't state of the art as far as hardware goes,i get decent frame rates in Halflife2,Battlefield 2,Counterstrike,Moto Gp ect. The only game i have to throttle down the graphics on is FEAR,(that games a resource hog!!) Anyhow this is my rig and I like it.....till i build my next one that is.BTW the last pic is before i installed the vga block and wrapped all the wires

Not too shabby ... at least you kept it nice and simple not like the other dude. A "6" for ya effort and coz I like Alienware ... btw just upgrade ya graphics card, I have an X850XT clocked at Platinum and it runs FEAR smoothe at max and i've manually changed the Res to 1280x1024 in the config file.

dude The Thermaltake Big water system works great!!,installation was super easy but you have to get the waterblock for the vid card seperate.The block fits both AMD and P-4's

Where do you find the unlock for it?...I have ATI tool installed but didn't realize an unlock was necessary.I've only seen unlocks for the 9 series cards. BTW the proc is O/ced to a 3.57...havn't pushed it further yet but I will.
