Alienware Quad Overclocked

Alienware today said it had upped the speed of the Area-51 ALX desktop with overclocked quad-core processors. The company says it has ramped up the speed of the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 to 3.2GHz, far outstripping the 2.66GHz of Intel's stock factory model. The extra performance gives the system the headroom for future games while still having the raw clock speed needed to run today's games quickly, the system builder says.

A base ALX ships for $5,751 with the 3.2GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 500GB of hard drive space, and dual GeForce 8800 GTX video cards. Less demanding users can also opt for a limited-run Area-51 7500, which starts at $3,448 with half the RAM and storage as well as a 512MB GeForce 7950 GT.
