I was a little worried based on one of the reviews written here about Amazon and bait and switch on this computer. My previous computer was basically done and I wanted to replace it without having a long wait so I checked what was available at Amazon. This computer suites my needs, and though it might not be a top of the line powerhouse, it does what I need it do very well. With regards to the need for power, I play WoW and a few other games but any real graphic intense game I tend to use a console nowadays. WoW plays at maximum settings and it's very smooth and the colors look terrific.

I can verify that what is advertised is exactly what shipped from all the components to the case itself. It's the exact same computer as in the pictures on the site.

A couple of things if you're considering buying this. The power supply is 525W, which is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. I think it's probably why some people have problems with overclocking and if you're going to upgrade eventually to top end graphic cards, you will most likely need to upgrade the power supply as well.

The computer is also cooled with a liquid cooling system and with fans. One of the other reviews mention that the fan is very loud, but that's only at start up and quickly quiets down. I find the computer noise level to be very acceptable.

For you Warcraft players, I have some recommendations for you. At first I was having problems with WoW and getting strange textures and weird renderings. First thing you want to do is download the latest AMD drivers and then open up your Catalyst Control Center and change the setting of Wait For Vertical Refresh all the way over to "always on". That should correct any issues you're having and you will be impressed with your WoW playing.

For the price tag, I would say this computer is an awesome buy.

I purchased this for my 15 year old who plays WOW
non-stop and the sound and graphics are fantastic.
My only complaint is the fan is a little loud, but
it runs fast and I super pleased with my purchase.
My son, the computer geek, is just thrilled.

In October we bought two Alienware Aurora R2 desktop computers to replace HP HDX18s. Both perform flawlessly and are great computers. After reading many reviews and comments on the product, it seems many customers of this level of hardware are making modifications or otherwise seeking to tune it for faster performance and end up with problems. If you use it as designed, it is an excellent performing desktop. Our use is mostly Photoshop CS5, Bridge, Lightroom (all 64bit) and Acrobat work and for that it is an incredible tool. Thumbnails load instantly and resizing is fast.

It would be fun to move up to the ALX or even Area 51 for our next computer - maybe next year. Alienware products are well designed and have quality components. Highly recommended.
