Alienware Area-51 ALX review


Intro With its Area-51 ALX, Alienware sets a new standard for high-end gaming desktops--at least as far as customer service. A representative will call you within an hour after you place your order online, and the company will preinstall any game you...

Unprecedented customer service; overclocked processor and graphics card; liquid cooling system.

Despite the tweaking, the performance fell short; amazingly expensive; the hard drives are second best; no custom paint option.

Despite the most impressive spec sheet we've ever encountered in a consumer desktop, the Alienware Area-51 ALX is only on a par with the competition that it should surpass.

Alienware Area-51 Extreme review

No front-mounted FireWire ports; bulky case.

With bleeding-edge performance and a slew of customization options backed up by support, the Alienware Area-51 Extreme should be on every gamer's short list, as long as you have cash to burn.

Core i7-980X Benchmark Bruiser ; Hot-Rod Chassis Design ; Great Case Lighting ; Wall of Storage Drive Cage ; Water-Cooled Goodness ; Killer Core i7-980 X Overclocks

Expensive For Sure ; Drive Bay Not Hot-Swap ; Expensive Extended Warranty

The Dell Alienware Area-51 with its hot off the wafer fab Core i7-980 X six-core processor, put up some of the fastest benchmark scores we've seen to date from any desktop system. From a gaming perspective, its graphics configuration of dual Radeon HD...
