Is this a good build for the price? Are is there something cheaper an better?
moved some costs around that you won't notice to get you into an OCable and SLI capable MoBo and gold PSU
You still don't have an SSD though (if that's important to you.)

I'm looking to buy after X-Mas, it's mostly for gaming. My Brother has Alienware runs farcry 4 good. Will this perform smoother than Alienware?
Sure - though you'll have to specify the specs of his PC for us to really compare. For the most part, prebuilts won't perform as well as home builts at similar price points. Alienware is no exception, and is arguably one of the worst companies at it.
In my opinion. If you have no idea what PC parts do. And you have a lot of spare cash around. And you just want to play games. Get an Alienware.
Sure, though I think it's understood that someone unwilling or unable to look at parts compatibility or selection might not be able to build better than a prebuilt. Of course the opposite would be someone unwilling to uninstall bloatware...
I tried to look up what Alienware's offerings were before I had posted that, and it appears to be two console replacements (the first featuring laptop CPUs, and the other topping out at a 760ti,) and an X99 build. That's not really a fair comparison IMO.
But you know what... I LOVE THE CASES!!!!
I'm not to sure about his hardware I could find out. I was a console gamer started playing pc games on my laptop, But can't run game on high are ultra. It's not to much on games it's an samsung ativ 8.
