Alienware Aurora gets faster thanks to new chips

Dell has updated its Alienware Aurora gaming desktops introduced at the past CES show. The new PC is being touted as the most advanced Alienware desktop created thus far, sporting a choice of second-generation, six-core Core i7 chips ranging in a factory-overclocked clock speed between 3.9GHz and 4.2GHz, along with the X79 Express chipset and as much as 16GB of quad-channel DDR3 RAM. Active vents and a liquid-cooling system are present to keep the system running quietly.

The systems also offer dual graphics cards with GDDR5 RAM for multi-display and 3D gaming setups. They sport dual PCI Express x16 slots. There are six memory card choices, ranging from a 1GB AMD Radeon HD 6870 to dual 2GB AMD Radeon HD 6950s running in CrossFireX mode.

Users can also specify as big as a 2TB, 7,200RPM hard drive or a 1TB SSD.

Gamers can easily upgrade the systems themselves, with all internal components accessible without any tools. The Aurora starts at $2,200 and is now available.
