Hello, i am looking for a gaming computer and i don't want to build one. I've seen the X51 and Aurora Alienware computers. Which is better (read Description)

The only game i play is minecraft (and its Modpacks). I want to be able to play minecraft and talk on skype without any lag.[i may also play Gmod on the future]

And, If needed run a Modded server(which for those who don't know it takes ram to run them)

The X51 seems more for  Extreme gaming

but the Aurora seems to hold more ram and have gaming. 

(im not looking to play games like skyrim, Wot, or Wow)

Thank you for your time posting anything that might help my choice.

The Aurora R4 is the better, more versatile/expandable and powerful machine. I suggest that.

Use a wired ethernet internet connection.

I too recommend the Aurora.  I suggest you find out the minimum requirements to play Minecraft and go a little higher with the specs you use to build the computer.   That way you won't spend much more money than you need to. 


In my case, I have an Aurora as well but it's loaded.  I prefer to have more power in case I need it than find out I need more power and not have it.  Hope that makes sense Smiley Happy


Good luck.
