Chose the top Haswell-E CPU because if you are going to go haswell-E you need to go all the way.  A 5930 would be like a really hot girl inviting you up after a date and all she wants to do is watch TV.  Its still nice but come on,  who wanted to really watch TV :P
 
3x EVGA 980s.  I always go EVGA for nvidia cards.  They have great service and support and their cards are usually rock solid due to their relationship with nvidia and such.  
 
I chose 2 850 evo drives.  One for the OS and one for your most common apps or games.  THe 4TB WD black will be plenty for the rest and still offers solid performance for a HDD.  
 
The case is the key part of this build.  Chose the S340 because I love that case.  It does have some flaws though and that is the paint is not the greatest on the sides and front and even worse on the top.  So we are going to custom paint this bad boy.  Satin white on the side panels and the PSU shroud as well as the cable hider panel.  They will then be top coated with a metallic pearl to set it off nicely. The top and front will be painted oil rubbed bronze to give it a really nice contrast to the white pearl sides as well as give it that little touch of elegance.  The mother board tray left  black.   The 850 EVO's should set off really nice against the PSU shroud painted white with that metallic pearl finish.  
 
White cables throughout to contrast with that pure black motherboard and black ram.  As well the cryorig cooler is plenty enough to handle a mild 4.4 overclock and will set off nicely with the white elegant top contrasting against all that black and complimenting the cables and white accent strips of the GPUs.  
 
The white carbon fiber is simply to cut into strips wide enough to hide the logo work and give a little contrast on the sides of the GTX 980s.  
 
I figured its not too hard to meet or beat the technical specs of that alienware rig.  We all could do it.  I wanted to do something custom here with custom paint and a nice themed white and black look inside and out here.  The system will still outperform the alienware system and it will look a heck of a lot better IMO.

I always pick performance over anything else. The only reason to spend this much money on a gaming PC is if you're trying to reach a performance target that cannot be reached without spending this amount of money. Therefore, it is in my opinion that the best use of this money is to get top of the line equipment and combine it with a custom loop water cooling setup and overclock the bejeezus out of the components to higher than any cheaper rig can reliably achieve. This rig has a total of 720mm of copper radiators, and custom EK full copper waterblocks for both GPUs and the CPU which are the focus of the build. I mean, lets face it, overclocking memory is pointless when we can already get 2400MHz DDR4. With the Phanteks Enthoo Pro, we can pack all of this inside the case and get the best overclocking performance. You could argue against the dual 295x2 for a total of Four GPU chips, but this solution has the most power with the least amount of PCI-E communication required between GPUs, and as such I'd pick it over 3 or 4 card solutions.

 

Okay, here's my build:

An mATX build with more memory, faster and bigger storage. While the dual AMD gpu suck power, they should comfortably outperform three GTX 980.

 

If you are wondering about the psu, it is the best available that fits in the 350D 180mm length limit. It is actually a pretty decent unit built by Enermax.

Not part of the contest but i actually put together a part list of componenets that are near identical to the alienware area 51 and is about half the price of the area 51 in australia of $2999 http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/wss9XL


PC is Intel Core i5 6400, GIgabyte H170 Gaming 3, Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x4GB 2400Mhz ,Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB, WD Blue 1TB, NZXT S340, ASUS Geforce GTX 960. Fractal Design Tesla R2 650W. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/793XNG. Graphics card choices don't always have to be dictated on performance. If you want the game stream and power consumption of the GTX 970 get that. If you want raw performance of the R9 390 get that. In the end we are all gamers, so what if your buddy gets an extra 5 fps?

This is not part of the competition but this build is probably the closest to the area 51 entry level model as i could get. I will also be doing the higher end models as well. Shows you that they make around $500 profit since they get windows for free. The config that they use is so unbalanced. A 5820K with an R9 270?.

This is the 2nd Tier. They make around $850 dollars profit since they get windows for free. They also went way overkill on the PSU, the thing only consumes 421W. Also does anyone realise you can add a tablet to your order of this? I think dell really wants you to buy their tablets

For my entry to put that Alienware Area 51 to shame as well as make it cry to its mommy (Dell) is by creating a gaming/workstation build that features not only 1 CPU, but 2 CPUs, running on Intel Xeon E5-2630 v3 running at 2.4GHz, featuring 8 cores with HT making a total of 16 threads per CPU, and 2 of them combines gives it a total of 36 threads! Now some will think, why go with Xeon when you cannot even overclock. Unlike Intel's unlock CPUs, where you can overclock the hell out of it. Intel Xeon also has overclock capabilities. Not as much as them unlock CPUs, but there is still some, depending on the Turbo Boost speed for the CPU, and this CPU can has a Turbo Boost clock of up to 3.2GHz. Here is a
on overclocking a Intel Xeon. For CPU cooling the popular Cooler Master 212 Evo is selected for its price and can handle overclock CPUs quite well too.

The OS drive unlike traditional SATA, this one is the Samsung XP941 that runs on M.2 using the PCIe bus making the fastest current drive on the market, Pair up with the OS drive are a pair of 3TB Western Digital Red Pro drives, giving a massive storage space of 6TB. The Western Digital Red Pro runs at 7,200RPM and has a 5 year warranty, compare to the non Pro version which has no specific RPM and a 3 year warranty. For graphics 3x EVGA GTX 970 ACX 2.0 cards are setup in SLI. GTX 970 performs just the same as GTX 980 and cost a lot less. By choosing the GTX 970, it can save on your wallet or get that one component you need like a SSD, when you're doing a budget build. Memory are ECC because the board used for this build is the Asus Z10PE-D16 WS, and ECC ram is the only type is supports, but it's not a bad thing, since ECC can correct itself when there is a error in the ram. Each of the CPU gets its own set of Crucial 16GB (4x4GB) DDR4 2133 in quad channel mode. And can be upgraded later on with more ram, since each CPU socket has 8 ram slots, that's 16 DDR4 ram slots in total.

For the rest of the build, I picked a Phantek Enthoo Pro for its elegant design, built in fan hub and it's spaceous interior so, it's easier to work with. A LG Blue-Ray writer is added and it supports 128GB BDXL disc, 1300w 80Plus Gold power supply from EVGA. It's modular, making it easier to do cable management, by having the unused cables store some where else and not bunched up and stuffed inside the case. Wireless connectivity we has a Asus Wireless AC USB 3.0 adapter, that comes with a extension stand, so you can place it somewhere like on your desk, instead of sticking out the back of your case. Keyboard and Mouse are by Corsair. The keyboard uses Cherry MX Brown, which gives that tactile bump when pressed, but without the loud audible click like the Cherry MX Blue, so you can continue gaming into the early hours without disturbing others with that clickety clack. Mouse is Corsair newest Sabre and features a laser sensor capable of up to 8,200dpi. Both of them are RGB so, it's customizable of up to 16.8million colors, and to top it off a EVGA Pro 2/3 way SLI brige to make the builds look more awesome. The total for this entire build comes out less than the maximum allowed budget of $4,700. :)
