Take a look at the new Alienware Aurora desktop PC on Dell.com. This all new design is sleek, powerful, upgradeable and compact, and may be your ticket to dominating in the latest computer games.
The Alienware Aurora is sleek, with its cool industrial design. It is powerful, with high-end processors and graphics cards. It is very easy to upgrade with tool-less access to many of the core components. Past Alienware desktops were generally quite large, but this is nice and compact due to a MicroATX case.
This computer is lightning fast, due to quad core Intel Core i7 processors. Digital media applications and games will really fly with these high-performance CPUs.
Further boosting gaming performance are options for dual graphics cards. Whether you are a fan of Radeon or GeForce graphics chips, you can get your top-power choice with options for ATI CrossFireX or nVidia SLI dual graphics.
Another top feature of the Alienware Aurora is the revolutionary design of the hardware itself. It is Alienware's most upgradeable MicroATX desktop ever, and provides easy access to the inside for fast upgrades. It is also very sturdy and good looking, while providing improved airflow. It even includes Alienware High-Performance Liquid Cooling, for efficient cooling, better overclocking and silence (it is twice as quiet as standard heatsinks and fans.)
