I have been wanting a new gaming computer for awhile now, because my isn't the best. So do you guys/gals have any suggestions. I would like a computer i can record with and mostly a desktop, but a laptop can do fine.
LOL. No one answered his question XD ok dude if you want a decent pc that can run battlefield at 60+fps(not saying you do) than your budget will probably be between $900 to $2500. That's my prediction....any ways you should probably build a pc rather than buying one but if you really don't want to build one for some reason than alienware is possibly the best way to go, although I've heard they are overprice...so just keep that in mind.

Anything over $1200 or so for 1080p is wastefully overkill and you would have hit diminishing returns by then.
In fact, you would have started to hit diminishing returns much earlier.

Yeah, no, that could not be farther from the truth.
I'll discuss this all pricing matters aside.
Their laptops are fancy LED-lit aluminum shells with zero heat dissipation.
You could go two ways with their desktop; the smaller X51, or the larger Aurora.
For the X51, they cram what are high-end desktop specs into the form factor of a console or even what could be compared to a laptop chassis. There is absolutely NO way that it is able to cool effectively at all.
For the Aurora, even more problems exist, which I'm not even sure how that is possible. They have a sufficiently large case to create good airflow, but somehow block off all of that airflow with the design of the case. They use reference coolers for the GPU that tries to intake the non-existent fresh air coming into the case, and so the GPUs get even hotter and louder than a reference cooler would usually cause them to get. They have a cheap, unreliable, Alienware-branded CLC CPU cooling system that is almost sure to leak during its lifetime at some point. The "overclocking" jobs done are unreliable, unstable, and people have reported an overclock being applied to 1 out of the 6 cores in their specific system. And finally, the power supply is quite literally a fire hazard if any sort of load is applied to it.
Even CyberPowerPCs with their crappy build quality are vastly superior to Alienwares.
Motherboard: Rampage IV Extreme
32 GB's RAM, 4 TB HDD, 1 TB SSD
Power Supply: Corsair AX1200i
GPU: x2 nVidia GTX 780 Ti
CPU: Intel i7 4960X
Oh, and Silver Arrow HSF
With all that, you would want a case like Silvertone TJ11
