Alienware X51 vs Xbox 360: Which should I buy?

Alienware's new game-munching mini-desktop the X51 has proven itself to be an extremely capable machine, happily chewing through the latest, most demanding games with reckless abandon in my full review. If you already own a games console like an Xbox 360 though, what exactly does the X51 offer to tempt you to splash your cash?

If you're a gaming fan -- and I'm assuming you are if you're reading about gaming hardware -- you probably already own a console, be it an Xbox 360 or a PlayStation 3, and you're probably wondering why on Earth you might want to drop £900 on a computer. Well, let me tell you.

I'd go with Alienware X51 since you can still play half of the X360 exclusives on the PC.

I'll buy a 360, and build a PC cheaper then that Alienware.

DarkBlood2790d ago

not to forget that windows 8 supposely plays 360 games the computer would be the obivios choice i guess

Not sure why you're getting disagrees, if you wanted you could get both for £900 and the PC would be more powerful than the Alienware.

'I'd go with Alienware X51 since you can still play half of the X360 exclusives on the PC.'

When keeping it PS3 fankid goes horribly wrong..

Please list ALL HALF of the 360 exclusives that are on PC.

Bottomline is if you want the console experience then it going to be a 360 and if you want to a gaming PC than obviously going Alienware is a good way to go.

But the only exclusives that you have to have to play are gears 3 and halo 4. Therefore get the xbox 360, it's like $150 (on sales) and you can invest the rest of the money on good games.

X360 plays Diablo 3? It's all you need for this article.

£900 ? 45fps Gtx 555. OMG 8gb ram intel i7 sounds like sandybridge 1155 from the 3.4ghz but maybe wrong alienware oh by you paying for the name too 1tb hdd.
Not worth £900 Come to me ill build you better HTPC at least with better video card you wanted a i5 2500k insead you be running with gtx680 or amd7950. Can be done i charge you for labour but you get much better pieace of hardware.
