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.
No USB 3 (USB 2 is normally fast enough for me to be honest)
No extra slots free for expansion
Weedy power supply limits graphics updates.
Is noisy on startup/waking.
Kinda huge (especially with a tiny MB)
I updated RAM to 16GB, Installed an SSD for the OS and programs, added 1TB mirror raid drive for data and used the original 1TB drive as a backup for that. I'm hoping this will be enough for another 3 - 4 years. My previous Dell 8300 lasted nearly 7 years with a couple of upgrades along the way and was still running when I upgraded to this. The side panel makes updates to memory and drives easy - I have not changed the graphics - they are not brilliant, but nor are they awful either - enough to play most games on HD settings on a 23" monitor. I got this at a really nice price in the warehouse. About half what Dell was listing at the time(and about half what I paid for my 3.4Ghz 8300), and even now I'd be hard pressed to beat the performance for similar $s.
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.
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.
