32 gig of RAM is neat to have but is really more than most people need, especially just for games. I'd to with the faster CPU instead. 8 gig of RAM is now the standard for a gaming system, 4 is a bit cramped, 16 is a bit much.

An SSD you can install yourself, it's a lot harder to swap the CPU, although if you don't plan on doing any work on the system yourself, I would lean towards the SSD over the slightly faster CPU in the Alienware.

Both laptops will run pretty warm, they are gaming systems and made for speed not for size or how cool the case is.

Hey man, I was literally just picking between these two also.
After a call to the Dell Sales team I decided to go with the G751JY.
The SSD comes as standard In the G751JY but costs nearly 100 bucks to add to the AW17R2.
The HDD is only 5400rpm and there is no high speed available but the G751JY HDD is 7200rpm and the SSD is 5400rpm. This comes as standard. No disk drive in the AW17R2 either. While the G751GY has a blueray optical drive as standard. Not sure about the one you were looking at but the CPU's on the two I viewed are very similar with only 0.10ghz difference in clock speed.
AW17R2 (3.60ghz)
G751JY (3.50ghz)

Personally I think the SSD and all that extra RAM make up for this.
As for cooling the G751JY has two huge HUGE vents sticking out the back. Both claim to have good cooling but visually seeing this events gave me more faith in the G751JY.

So I choose the G751JY and those are my reasons.
Good luck with whatever you choose
