If Dell is now Hell, is there a purgatory outside of build-it-yourself Heaven?

If Dell has truly gone to Hell
, where should one go for a new rig?
For the last couple of weeks I've been salivating over the thought of getting an Alienware ALX
tower from Dell, under the impression it would be pretty painless experience. I haven't really had any bad experiences with the Dells I've had, more-or-less including my current laptop. I'm tired of having to run even old
games on the lowest settings and lowest resolution.
My problem is I don't have the technical knowledge or especially the patience/motivation to build my own. I'd just wind up with a pile of parts in boxes. So are the Alienware systems just distributed by Dell, or are they also $#!+?
Or is putting a computer together much simpler that I think it is?
