replacing my alienware x51 with a alienware area 51

Jump to solution

January 2014 I got a alienware x51 and I was very happy with it until I needed to upgrade and found that upgrading was nearly impossible for the long term. But the alienware area 51 has everything I could ever want and my alienware x 51 still has its warranty until may 2015.(not the return warranty the customer assistance warranty) I bought the alienware from BestBuy and I was wondering if I could trade it in towards the alienware area 51? I have all the receipts and paperwork and I know if I am allowed to trade it in I am going to have to pay the cost that my previous alienware doesn't cover. But is it possible to trade it in? Sorry for my bad English and thank you for your responses![:)]

No there is no way to send the computer back to us in order to get a new one, however if you don’t want this revision any more you can sale it so you can get some cash to buy the new Area 51.

So is there no way to turn in my pc for a newer one? Is there no way to get some of the money I spent or get some cash back if I send my pc in? I'm curious what are my options?

The X51 still has great potential, have you contemplated upgrading your graphics card to either a 970 or 980 GTX ?

I didn't think I could. My power source is way to low. 240W

Wow I just saw that the gtx 980 only uses 165W. Yes now I'm considering that buy. Thanks so much for that recommendation!

If your running a 240w PSU you most likely will need to upgrade to the 330W to run one of the new 970/980 cards. But yes people are running a GTX 980 in the X51, search for X51 GTX 980 in YouTube for more info.
