Finally thinking about a PC gaming machine but don't want to splurge? The Steam Machine from Alienware is a good entry level for casual PC gaming. Both units above are at their historic low and the deal will end tomorrow night. Other select units have already sold out, so if you're interested you may want to pick one up sooner rather than later. Note that while both are equipped with the same GPU, a faster CPU and more RAM will decisively make for a quicker machine.
