If you’re looking to get a powerful gaming PC at a great price from Alienware, act fast, as a limited number of Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 gaming desktops are left at $1,150 MSRP. Between a machine-specific Ryzen 9 5900 CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, you’re sure to be ready for tons of fireworks power, now at just $2699.99 (regularly $3849.99).When Dell’s Alienware gaming division rolled out this PC at a low price, we were pleasantly surprised, as we looked at this bad boy for review last year. However, our review unit was a little thinner than what we see here today, featuring a Ryzen 7 5800X, AMD Radeon RX 6800XT, 32GB of 3200MHz DDR4, and a 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD. For reference, the R10 Gaming Desktop for sale packs an AMD Ryzen 9 5900, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, a 32GB 3200MHz DDR4, and a 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD. Despite this difference in specs, we’re still quite happy with the results from our tests and the overall quality of the R10, which should apply to this current generation of the beast on sale now.
Of course, there were some caveats to this, including some concerns about the building’s thermal solution at the time. More specifically, we noted in our review that in the R10 chassis, “some high-end processors cannot be sufficiently cooled during long, continuous multi-threaded workloads, by a single 120mm radiator, or at least not with the airflow provided by their smaller fans.” This was the only major concern we had overall, and Alienware has probably improved things a bit more since then, too.
The other major advantage of this pre-design is that although the lack of components and pressure is starting to ease, it will allow you to have a good selection of high-end PC components without worrying about something not making a jump in external charging. It should also be considered that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition graphics card is currently $2,224 on Amazon, which is 82% of Dell’s total asking price, although that’s clearly an overpriced RTX 3090.Whether you’re an Alienware fan or not, you can’t deny that this is a pretty cool deal.
