Alienware Area-51 Gaming PC Review »


From motorized vents for active cooling and a lit interior for easy access, the Alienware Area 51 Gaming PC offers an Intel i7-970 processor, dual NVIDIA GTX 480 video cards and 2 terabytes of storage for high end gaming needs. Kevin Pereira and Chris Hardwick review the gaming PC which starts at $2,200.

What You Need To Know

  • The Area-51 measures 2' high and 2' deep.
  • It weighs 90 pounds.
  • It also has active vents and customizeable lighting, featuring an overall "aggressive" design.
  • The active vents are pretty cool: just like a Porsche, they raise and lower automatically according to how much your machine needs to be cooled.
  • You can customize the outside case lights just like the Alienware laptops, which is a nice and fun touch.
  • The inside of the case has as much attention to detail as the outside: there's internal theater lighting, quick release panels and easy hard drive expansion.
  • All of these features work well.
  • There's a latch on the back that you push down to open the side panels, which make it really easy to get inside.
  • There's also a shroud that covers the video cards and the liquid cooling radiator, which are both quick release.
  • The hard drives are uniquely mounted on the opposite side of the case, and are just as easy to pop in or out.
  • The entire case is internally lit, even when it's not plugged in, so you can make changes more easily.
  • Overall, this is one of the coolest cases we've ever reviewed, inside and out.
  • This PC is one of the fastest ever.
  • In our normal 3DMark Vantage tests, it scored as the second fastest PC we've reviewed (the Maingear PC was the first.)
  • It'll also play any game on the market extremely well and even in 3D, which you'll need with NVIDIA's 3D vision kit for an extra $200.

Price

  • Starts at $2,200.
  • This configuration is about $3,900.
