In this link over here: http://www.dell.com/content/products/category.aspx/desktop-gaming?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs
why is one computer so much more expensive than the other. They both have similar spec and everything.

No, they don't?

Intel Core i7 975 > Intel Core i7 920
The Aurora ALX has liquid cooling, which is better than air cooling.
In your point of view: my computer is VERY similar to a friend's:
Mine has an Intel CPU (C2D 3,0), his too (Pentium 4 2,4)
Mine has an nvidia card (geforce 9600GT), his too (geforce 4MX)
Mine has RAM (2GB), his too (512MB)
All this to conclude that the name may be similar, but the product is totally different.

Alienware is totally charging big bucks for that Intel® CoreTM i7 975 3.33GHz.

What's funny is I'd prefer the less expensive one. It has a 5870 in it and you can OC they 920 to about the same speeds as a 975, with proper cooling.
As far as liquid cooling, I'm guessing the Alienware computers are using the ALC or some such thing, not that great and a good aircooler will beat it.

The Core i7 price difference is about $700 of that:
The liquid cooling is probably another $300 of that.
