@MegamanX97: still three games up for grabs!! The stream didn't get off on the right foot due to technical issues, but everything is fixed now!!! Will be starting the stream 8:00 pm Atlantic time. If things go real well I might even start earlier!!
The picture went side ways, but that is okay!
New streamer here! and hoping to fish some followers :3 being super honest.
I have three collectors editions that I will be giving away! As you can see two collectors for Xbox One and one for PlayStation 4. I will also be giving away a strategy guide for Metal Gear.

Will stream tonight at 6:00 PM Atlantic time.
My goal is to get 100 followers. I am currently sitting at 31!! Would be pretty awesome if I could achieve that goal. I have just started streaming and was pumped to get 31 followers.
Do you have a day one xbox? Or one that was close to the original release?
I find the two original controllers I bought were a little bit "cheap." Like have a creaking sound to them and the headphone jack doesn't really go in flush sometimes. The new ones seem more sturdy and they don't have an issue at all.
I bought the i7 version. I replaced the hard drive with a solid state drive. I love the Alienware Alpha, but I will admit, I love the consoles more. The graphics card runs most games at 1080p Medium settings at around 30 to 45 fps - Again, depending on what games you play. Still highly recommend it!
@MegamanX97: If that's what the i7 version is doing then wow! I wouldn't recommend that too anyone. Actually don't ever yourself as that's just sad all around and down right a dick move. Medium settings 1080p..... So they essentially play console like graphics at 1080p for a much, much higher price tag. Like wtf are the benefits of such a CPU heavy system? Nothing its bottle necked by the GPU and is a waste of money when the I5 would have done the exact same thing. . I take back what I said earlier in the thread of it not being all bad. Damn thing isn't even as powerful as a $700 dollar laptop I have sitting around.
Medium 1080p.... For the price of a 4k ready machine. I actually feel disgusted now with how it performs, and how bad the steam machines are. All of them are such a rip off it's not even funny. Feel bad for everyone buying one of these for close too $1000 only to have the thing be useless in modern games the moment DX12 starts to be hitting its stride which is about a year or two away. Forward thinking is obviously not a lot of people strong suite. As that non upgradable Alpha is going to be a paper weight in 2-3 years, with it's low 2gb vram and lower end card that can't be upgraded.
haha, calm down sailor. There are a lot of out dated computers and hardware that runs games at certain settings. I can't tell if your response is an angry attack, or just stating a point. I agree the price tag is quite high. For many 1000$ is a lot of money. For me I like my purchase. I like using it to play certain games (by far not high end games). I did a lot of research before I made my purchase and I felt that it was a good fit for me and how I game.
The Alienware Alpha will never be a high end rig. Seeing it be obsolete in two years -- I really can't see it, but one never knows. Could I have spent 1000$ on something else? For sure -- most definitely, but in the end I bought it for myself.
Really appreciate your response and insight. You brought up some valid points.
in a year it wont run shit
Well, it will run stuff, but it will probably run poorly. The biggest downfall was unable to swap out a graphics card. I am not a huge PC gamer. For what games I do play on it I really like it.
