From what I can tell the front bezel on that case can just be pulled right off.

Hardware requirements have always been bullshit to some extent. They're just getting worse. Either because console makers are bribing publishers to make PC seem uber-expensive by amping up the...
PCIe is fully backwards compatible as well as compatible across different sizes.
The only issues is bandwidth. PCIe 3.0 has twice as much bandwidth per lane. But no current single-GPU graphics...
Yeah, that is why motherboards with angled SATA connectors are great. Then an overhanging graphics card won't block them.
^ I felt the exact same way actually, until I built a system for the first time. I've now done gradual upgrades to most of the hardware in that system, so I'm sort of on my second DIY system. I still...
Eh, well, maybe. At best, DSR is basically 4X SSAA. That can still leave behind a small amount of aliasing, especially since it's really a very primitive form of SSAA (it uses a simple grid because...
Yes, it's an impressive show of marketing.
Oh, you mean as an actual feature.
It's the same old thing that was superseded by MSAA many years ago.

Iris Pro has that eDRAM cache. That's the only special thing. It helps the effective memory bandwidth.
It's sort of special but really it's just another way to scale up the performance the end...

Iris is pretty much just the same thing with more performance.
Iris Pro Graphics 5200 has 40 execution units at up to 1300 MHz, with a 128 MB eDRAM cache.
Iris Graphics 5100 has 40 execution...

AMD graphics drivers for Linux are also a bit pants. I can't imagine hybrid crossfire makes it any better, especially considering it's quite bad even on Windows. Only recently got frame pacing...

Optimus and Linux is never a combination I would recommend.
If HD Graphics 4XXX isn't good enough, then you could always go Iris Pro 5200. Only comes with expensive CPUs, but then a mobile Core i7...
I'd recommend a GTX 970 instead of the 980. Almost as powerful, MUCH cheaper.
Battlefield 3 and 4
Google claims that error code has something to do with Windows Firewall. Which is a bit odd when you're fiddling with your password, but could make sense with regard to the slow downloads.
Your graphics card is probably either a 7750 or 7770 (the specs just quote the 7700 subfamily). The 7770 is equivalent to the R7 250X. There are plenty of upgrades available, the minimum to be worth...
I don't think the price will drop until AMD releases something new or cuts their prices even more (which also seems unlikely).
AMD cut the prices of their R9 290 and 290X, which are the most directly affected cards. The rest of the lineup has only seen minor pricing adjustments.
A 280X at £220 is pretty crazy when a GTX 970 is available for £250.
Unfortunately Nvidia hasn't released a GTX 960 yet, which would fit your budget better and really shake things up in that...
The size of the 970 depends on which model you buy. The smaller ones are going to be similar in size to the GTX 560 she has now.
The 8 series is from 2006, I think you mean the 800 series. And part of the 800 series uses Kepler like the 700 series.
It should run everything, as long as you are okay with dialing settings down to low in some games.
The prices are somewhat ridiculous, as is to be expected with Alienware. Can it run Doom? Nobody knows at this point. Chances are it would do alright at low settings at least, and with the GTX 765M...
The 2500K is not 5 years old, by the way. It was released in 2011.
The GT Omega Evo XL is apparently quite good:
