    Option 1!

    Better processor, better GPU, more RAM. It's also possible to unlock the 6950 to a 6970 by flashing the bios.

    Easy.

    I wouldn't choose any of them because they're all Alienware. Sorry dude.

    If you are really going to spend that kind of money, go get a Falcon NW, or even ibuypower. Don't buy an overpriced Dell. You will get better quality for less other places (buypower or building yourself will be better, have good warranties on all the components, and easily fixable if something breaks). There are guides all over the net on how to build your own PC. It takes a short afternoon, and only requires a few screws, pluggin in a few wires, and snapping cards into place. I can't recommend it enough.

    If you really must pick one of those, the top one is better specced. But I cringe to think how much you are selling yourself short.

    I can't agree more. I used to think alienware and all that other good jazz was good enough, but it wasn't until about a half a year ago that I had someone who knew what they were doing build a PC on iBuypower for $1000. And guess what? I can't find a single game where I don't run at 60FPS at max settings (except RIFT, but it's in beta so I'll have to excuse it.).
