Those would fit an Alienware M15x/M17x/M18x system - you'll need to look at the used market to meet that price point. Even then, you may have trouble meeting that price level.
The card may or may not work with the current Alienware 17 model. The 15" and smaller Alienware systems have integrated video chips - no separate card. Of course the new systems will exceed your price point by a factor of three or more.
If you want a new system, you're going to have to temper your expectations - nothing below $1,000 will take a video card any longer -- all of these, even the Clevo-built systems and ASUS, MSI, etc. gaming systems at or below $1K have integrated video now.
