Alienware ALX CFX

Alienware today claimed to have one of the fastest gaming desktops yet with the ALX CrossFireX. The system is one of the first from a major PC builder to use AMD's CrossFireX technology to pair up two of its twin-chipset Radeon HD 3870 X2 cards in a single system. The four-GPU setup is enough to supply nearly four times the performance in ideal conditions and 2GB of total video memory. Users can also use official drivers to overclock the entire setup if they like, Alienware says.

The ALX continues to be Alienware's fastest system and ships by default with a 3GHz Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor overclocked from the factory to 4GHz, 2GB of low-latency RAM, two 10,000RPM drives that combine to reach 320GB of storage, and built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi. Adding the dual Radeon HD 3870 X2 option lifts the price by $500 to $5,649. The company expects to ship systems configured this way by early April.
