5 out of 5 eggsDon't listen to Shonuff

Pros: Awesome quality
Awesome performance
Great application performance

Cons: Video card on the weaker side of the spectrum

Other Thoughts: Shonuff is just upset that he can't have a nice rig like this one. He is giving a bad name to this fine product and is a prick.

4 out of 5 eggsHad to comment

Pros: I had to toss my hat in the ring seeing the comments from those 2 who do not own the product..... BTW yes I think pretty much everyone knows you can build a desktop for cheaper than you can buy one built already. However for those who meet the following scenarios, this makes a great gaming rig:

Not technically versed or simply do not want to build their own.

You simply would rather not bother and spend all that time building and configuring, and just want to enjoy.

You like the fact that it comes with a warranty and if part X goes bad that's their problem, not your job to trouble shoot it out.

Love them or hate them Dell has their arms around the world and no matter where you are, they can get you technical support of some level of assistance, which if you built yourself is simply via friends and the internet.

These rigs use the intel x79 chipset which is 4 channels which means plenty of bandwidth, the 3820 is the lowest of the intel extreme chips but no slouch!

Cons: power supply is only 875 which is ok, but when you are buying a premiere brand you expect more than just enough. I would not venture into upgrades later without making 1 a power supply.

lack of amd cpu's in the aurora r4 lineup, they are cutting off a customer base by only doing intel cpus.

integration of uefi instead of bios has made the alien respawn/recovery broken and created a breakfix solution in the interm that can be confusing i am told.

Other Thoughts: overall its an alienware, you get the global support/warranty that is missing if you build it yourself and is a pain in the neck to get with some other major gaming rig co's who's name's I will not mention (research customer service/warranty issues on a gaming pc co. before you buy anything!).

2 out of 5 eggsWhat's with the fancy look?

Pros: I don't own this rig, but I own one of their alienware m11x laptop which is now i regret, i shouldn't have bought it. When it comes to fanciness , alienware wins. With its edgy gaming look and all those fancy colors you can customize with it. I give 2 eggs for the looks

Cons: If you are a gamer and wanting to have your own to play decently and having worried financially, I don't recommend this thing, I am a gamer too, I am currently building my own rig and I tell you, I have my PSU, motherboard and Processor for the mean time I spent only like $386.. and I already have 3 parts, I am planning to buy a SSD and having my graphics card under radeon crossfire. I already assumed my total will not exceed $800 , and my Alienware M11x is worth $890+ tax when I bought it last year january 2010.
FYI : its better building your own, if you are after the quality :)

Other Thoughts: My current Rig:
Intel core i7 26000k
Asus p8Z68-VLX (this comes with my i7)supports radeon crossfire
$290 (FYI: I had i7 on sale 199+ $50 off on asus mobo)

PSU : Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W Bronze W0382RU ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
$89 :$69.99 after mail-in rebate card

I am currently looking for a good SSD and RAM :)
almost done
