RE: How to tell which Aurora I have

You have an Aurora (aka Aurora R1) with Intel x58 Chipset. If you have louvers on top and extra lights ... it's an Aurora ALX. Otherwise, it's just a plain Aurora like mine.

With an Intel-920 and nVidia-260 ... you have one of the first ones made.

Tesla is right.

Another way to check is to enter your Service Tag here and it will tell you what model you own.
