CPU - $340
RAM - $200
HDDs - $400
Optical drive - No clue. Who the Hell uses discs? $20?
Gfx - $60
MoBo (w 6950M), case, PSU - $400
Ttl: $1420 (+- $200)

ETA: Ah. I see what you're doing. Doze key - $125, decent keyboard & mouse - $50, competently-installed water cooling - $200, rizzle prizzle - $1795 (+-$250)

ETA2: No idea why you'd want to water-cool that, though, unless you're really stressing that CPU.... They do list "ATI Radeon HD 6950" as a "co-processor" (I have no idea what that means... I didn't know there was an onboard 6950 version) which is worth ~$250 new (if full-fledged). ETA3: Huh. Waddya know... there is a 6950M. What a bizarre choice when using a weak NVIDIA card as the dedicated. Updated lists.

Edit: Those are for the mining rig not for the Alienware knock off I will look for parts now that you helped me out I wouldn't have even known what to call all those things like CPU and stuff

It might just be easier to buy a pre-built alienware comparing prices

The software Looks good mate. But, Why don't you use some simple animation software for creating youtube videos. I have earlier done just with Xara studio.
