your title makes it sound like a $849.99 Rebate

Edit it to say $849.99AR instead

...related to the "build it yourself", are there sites that sell custom build gaming/HTPC boxes as "ready to go"? Have no problems selecting components and what not, dread having to mess with cables or hammering on mini itx case to make stuff fit.

This is a very good value for those who need a loaded system out of the box and are not looking to upgrade in the future. It's an even better value for those who don't pay sales tax at Adorama. A comparable system from Dell or HP (where virtually everyone pays tax) would have to be $799 or less to account for the sales tax savings.

A comparable XPS 8700 or an HP Pavilion would be around $600. Add an $80 value for the SSD, $150 for the graphics and $25-$50 for the extra RAM, and you are well over $800. The case is absolutely stunning in terms of aesthetics and is amazingly small, especially considering the amount of hardware it packs. This form factor is not upgradable, but in this configuration it doesn't need to be. An i7 + 16GB RAM + 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD + Wireless-AC beats, quite possibly, 90% of all desktops and laptops in use out there.

tl,dr: There is no comparable PC out there at this price.

In the Alienware, besides the SSD, you get a much better graphics card and a better wireless card. You get a cool, tiny case but give up expandability. And I wouldn't pay $800 for that XPS 8700 to begin with.
