Alienware Aurora – A PC Hotrod

The most upgradable microATX Alienware desktop ever!

Alienware Aurora desktops keep you in the game with key chassis features

Intelligent component layout and cable management system

The layout of the motherboard, power supply, hard drives and optical drives, along with the placement of the system fans, encourage easy user upgrades and optimized airflow for high performance.

Easy upgrades — Look inside the Alienware Aurora and you'll see why it's easy to make this desktop your own. You can access many of the core components without any tools for fast upgrades and hassle-free service. (Or you can just show them off.)

Front panel access — Simply press down on the first louver to connect USB and front audio cables without needing to reach to the back of the chassis. The ports are articulated to reduce front-door snag when cables are connected, so you can avoid unwanted tangling and costly mishaps.

Rear entry — Use the chassis's last louver, toward the rear of the system, as the handle for opening the case for upgrades and service. The rear of the chassis also includes lighting for added convenience when adding or removing cables.

Blazing Video Game Cards with the Alienware Aurora

Immersive gaming

State-of-the-art graphics and optional 3D technology combine to create an immersive experience that puts you in the game.

These high-performance graphics options are intended for hardcore HD gaming experiences exceeding 1080p resolution on a single display and in 3D.

Lock and load an optional dual-card configuration and your visual experience can be tripled with up to three HD displays, increasing your field of view and putting you "in the middle of" the virtual world.

Features 7.1 THX-certified sound that enables you to feel fully immersed in the battle. Sound is so realistic you might hear the enemy before you see them.
