Is there more to the story?

800 is a steal unless refurb or used. Gaming machines do take a beating. So we can't predict life span as one user will park it on a cooling pad on a desktop and the next user schleps it around daily to school.

If the owner is gently both should deliver years of service. Slight not to more RAM and the 970 for this round.

The inspiron is brand new and the alienware 17 r3 was restored to almost new condition just a small scratch on the bottom left corner. (my old laptop that ive had since 2010 doesnt work well anymore because its fan stopped working 4 days agoSad ) So the alienware would be the better choice for gaming?

You can compare GPUs with google research.

I wondered why it was so cheap. Gaming laptops don't age well. So you want a good warranty on the refurb. Otherwise go with the new one. Tough choice.
