Delivering the pure, raw power that gamers crave, the Alienware Aurora gaming desktop PC (model AAR4-10000BK) envelops you into the action of the latest immersive 3D games with blazing fast performance and a robust graphics backbone. The highly expandable mid-tower desktop chassis and intuitive internal component layout allows for user-friendly upgrades and optimized thermal management.
This Aurora includes a Blu-ray Disc drive for viewing movies in crystal-clear HD resolution on a connected HDTV, and the Blu-ray drive includes an integrated SuperMulti drive for creating your own DVDs and CDs.
It's powered by a second-generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, which provides you with excellent multitasking capabilities whether you're playing immersive 3D games or creating HD video. With updated Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, the latest Core i7 increases speed automatically for whatever you're doing.
This desktop is also loaded with video processing power thanks to dual AMD Radeon HD 6870 graphics chips (each with 1 GB of video RAM), which feature AMD CrossFireX technology. You'll enjoy Full HD 1080p output, DirectX 11-capable graphics, and multiple-display options.
This Alienware Aurora features one super speedy USB 3.0 port--the latest development in USB data transfer technology. Perfect for transferring and retrieving large files between your PC and an external hard drive or digital camera, USB 3.0 offers the speediest, most efficient way get what you need from external devices. (It also comes with four standard USB 2.0 ports, plus USB 3.0 is backward compatible.)
It's also outfitted with a 2 TB hard drive, 16 GB of installed RAM, HDMI audio/video output, and included Alienware keyboard and optical mouse. It's pre-loaded with the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium operating system (64-bit).
Note: Monitor not included.
Unparalleled Case Design
Designed from the inside out with performance, function, and style in mind, Alienware Aurora's chassis delivers a purposeful internal layout in a sleek, beautiful and compact form factor. The desktop's maintenance-free, high performance CPU Liquid Cooling replaces the standard heat sink and fan that comes with most PCs, and its Active Venting system provides additional heat dissipation during heavy gaming. This unique design increases component longevity and allows the Aurora to stay nearly twice as quiet as competitors with traditional heat sink and fan layouts. Additionally, all core components inside the Aurora are purposefully compartmentalized in chambers that provide clean, clear and easy tool-less access for upgrades, maintenance or showing off.
The Alienware Aurora comes complete with the Alienware Command Center, which provides intuitive, user‐friendly access to exclusive applications and controls, including AlienFX lighting effects, Thermal Controls and AlienFusion power management system. AlienFX enables you to customize the exterior lighting zones on the chassis with over 25 billion color combinations for a one-of-a-kind personalized experience. Updates and new releases download directly into Command Center, creating a constantly evolving tool for you to modify and personalize your gaming computer.
