I haven't been this excited about a graphics card since the 8800 GTX launched in 2006. What a great time to be a gamer! DirectX 10 was released, the Intel Core 2 Duo and we had great games like Elder Scrolls Oblivion, Rainbow Six Vegas and Company of Heroes just to name a few. I customized and ordered my first Alienware Area 51 7500 in December 2006. Here is a picture, it had 1 gig of ram running at 800Mhz, an E6700 Core 2 Duo running at 2.66Ghz and an 8800 GTX. That thing ran great and it is the reason why I love alienware so much. I am a mechanic and could easily build my own but I still prefer Alienware.
