Will this be able to play a wide variety of games well?
In which time frame?
you can play games the question is for how long
Yes, but there is a lot cheaper options than Alienware unless you want to pay for the case.
I dont know how to build a computer, so its only prebuilts for me
Myself and my brother built our PC - and neither of us our overly geeky. Building a custom PC gives you much better bang for buck. What we did was select equipment online and then asked the computer store if everything was compatible.
Tips - choose equipment that can future proof itself. You want a motherboard that not only takes what you put on it now - but can expand. Select a case that is well ventilated and has room to spare. Your CPU should be near top of the line (not a piece you want to change for a number of years). We got i7 3700 (something like that).
We also got the computer shop to actually build it for a small fee.Honestly - that Alienware setup is not a bad set of benchmarks to work off.
We spent $2000 on custom build that would cost $3000 - 3500 shop bought.
You don't necessarily need to build computer there is just other cheaper options than Alienware.

Well that is not even gaming card, it has been mostlikely designed for professional video editing or something.
I built my computer! It's really not hard. It's a lot cheaper than buying a built one. The awesome thing about building your own computer is it's customized to your needs/wants. You can say you built it and you have your own unique custom built computer!
Just do a little bit of research on what you want/need and how to build it. I think you'll have fun doing it. If you need any help, you can ask me or any of the guys around here. We're more than willing to help!
