The Alienware Aurora AAR4-2501BK Gaming Desktop Computer by Dell includes everything you need to get your game on. A powerful 3.6GHz Intel Core i7-3820 quad-core processor (which can be boosted to 3.8 GHz), 8 GB of 1600 MHz DDR 3 memory and a 2TB hard drive is more than enough to get started. But Dell adds an nVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 graphics card with 1.5 GB of onboard discrete memory to process the most demanding graphics. The motherboard is SLI ready, so you can easily add another card for an even more enhanced graphical experience.
Adding to the multimedia experience is the Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium audio and Blu-ray Combo Drive for listening to and viewing all your high-def content. The unit also includes a USB 3.0 port for high-speed transfers and Gigabit Ethernet for speedy Internet experiences. There's also a 19-in-1 card reader for additional storage support.
The Aurora AAR4-2501BK includes Alienware's multimedia keyboard and mouse. Along with the 875W power supply, you're ready to pick up and play right out of the box. It is configured with the Windows 8 operating system.
- Graphics Powerhouse
- nVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX Multi-GPU Graphics options will bring your games to life. All graphics cards offered with the Aurora utilize the most advanced GDDR5 graphics memory, so you can crank up the settings for visually intense gaming. Hook up as many as six displays at once with the multiple-displays option supported by technologies such as AMD Eyefinity. The Aurora supports Full HD (1080p) and nVIDIA 3D Vision technology (3D capability requires an optional 120Hz 3D capable LCD display, nVIDIA 3D Vision Kit and a nVIDIA graphics card), for a lifelike gaming experience.
- Speed Powerhouse
- With the available 3rd Generation Intel Core i7 CPUs, with up to 15MB of internal cache and quad channel DDR3 memory in configurations up to 1600MHz, you'll get speed and performance that will give you a competitive edge. Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 can also give your PC a boost of processing power when it needs it most.
- Power Management
- AlienFusion Power Management lets you manage your machine's power demands, so you decide when you need maximum performance or when to reel it in for less intensive applications. And if you need that extra little push for your factory-overclocked processors, the Aurora AAR4-2501BK enables an unlocked BIOS for custom, do-it-yourself CPU overclocking up to 3.8GHz.
