Alienware made the list lol? I guess I should have less faith that TH lists are actually tested?

What are your thoughts on the gaming PCs listed on this post (https://custom-pcbuilding.com/the-best-pre-built-gaming-pc-under-1000-1500-2000/)? It seems like they are very well priced, especially when compared to the ones on this post, and they use high-quality components. Let me know if you have any suggestions, please.

Damn it, I wanted a Cyrux cpu...

wonders why Razer promo codes are at bottom of post when no razer PC was mentioned in article.
I have one. Harvested it from a computer where I worked when I was 17. No idea if it works - just sits in its own little slot in my PC toolbox.

The Alienware inclusion (and the fact that this thread at the outset was a year old) makes me wonder if some of this list is simply copy/pasted from last year.

Did TH revisit the Alienware? Because Dell/Alienware love to gunkify systems, and there's no way I would go with Alienware's closed thermally-unacceptable system.

I'd also never go with an F processor since there's no iGPU, which is very useful in case your discrete GPU dies and you need to troubleshoot.

Also, the component shortage isn't much of a component shortage anymore, particularly with GPUs.

Kinda lost a bit of respect for TH unfortunately with this list.
