Both of the ASUS G11CD-WS51, ASUS G11CD-WS51 + Monitor packages are good deals. Especially if your in need of a monitor(its 1600 x 900). If neither of the ASUS's are in stock go with the Dell 8900 or the Alienware X51-8gb all priced under $1600 The Alienware X51-16GB, Alienware Area 51, Asus G20CB-WS51, and Asus G20CB-WS71 don't offer enough performance for the increase in price. Note: ASUS voids warranty if you remove the side panel to do any upgrades. I'm still uncertain about the other brands. The DIY is just meant to show the type of value you can get for the money. The price can vary a lot depending on the product you choose.

Oculus Ready?? A look inside the Area 51 This is NOT the Oculus ready but should give you an idea of the room you have to work. ASUS ROG G20 Youtube Video. Again NOT the Oculus ready version but does show the layout of the case internals. Alienware Area-51 Same processor and memory at the Oculus ready version but has 3 GTX 980s instead of 1. If anyone has one of these computers feel free to post up your experience with it.
