With Windows 10 Home – Break down boundaries and immerse yourself in the game with graphics more realistic than ever before thanks to the multi-thread scaling capabilities of the new API DirectX 12.
Designed for VR, the new Aurora was engineered to exceed today’s virtual reality requirements. And with convenient tool-less access, it also offers easy upgradeability for the next wave of VR.
With a VR-ready Alienware PC, you can be the first to experience the future of gaming. Alienware provides a range of systems to bring you the most immersive VR experience imaginable.
Additionally, the Aurora offers Oculus or HTC Vive virtual reality configurations, for powerful, immersive VR experiences.
The Alienware Aurora features a meticulous, zero-fat design and is the first of its kind to offer tool-less upgrades to graphics cards, hard drives and memory.
Designed to keep cool.
Inspired by the thermal ergonomics of the Area-51, the Aurora provides optimal air intake on the front and right panels and an exhaust fan on top for maximum airflow and cooling of internal components.
Packed with power.
The Aurora is Alienware’s smallest mid tower gaming desktop to offer both dual-graphics and liquid cooling.
A uniquely designed PSU swing-arm keeps graphics and expansion cards safely secured and easy to upgrade – along with memory modules and up to 5 storage drives – thanks to tool-less accessibility.
Iconic & quiet design.
Customizable AlienFX lighting gives the Aurora a distinct, dynamic look and its whisper-quiet operation allows you to get lost in the game without noisy distractions.
Engineered for overclocking: The Alienware Aurora was designed to support fully customizable upgrades – including speeds of up to 4.2GHz on all four cores with the Intel® Core™ i7 6700K CPU – with up to 4-core Intel® 6th Gen processors, optional CPU liquid cooling and up to 64GB DDR4 memory at 2133MHz or up to 16GB of XMP DDR4 at 2400MHz.

High-speed and hardcore: Maximize gaming performance and capacity with up to 5 solid-state drives using a mix of 1x PCIe SSD and 4x SSDs.
Reengineered to support up to dual 300W graphics cards (600w total graphics power), the Alienware Aurora now features more dedicated graphics power than any previous model.
Ready to enable jaw-dropping 12K gameplay with support from NVIDIA Surround Technology, the Aurora is an intensely immersive experience that plunges you directly into the heart of the game. It’s not what serious gamers want in a midtower desktop – it’s what they demand.
Alienware Aurora (2016): Driven by 20 years of innovation and gamer feedback, the Alienware Aurora was designed for VR and engineered for liquid cooled overclocking and dual graphics – an ideal embodiment of what mid tower gaming desktops should strive to achieve.
AlienFX uses 20 different colors to create 8000 unique themes to give your machine a more personalized look. Supported on over 130 titles, lighting zones can be customized to react to things like in game actions, powering on and off, and notifications by pulsing, morphing or simply holding a solid color. Once you’ve finished your theme, you can save and upload it to where you can share your custom creation with others and download any you find. And for times when you want a little less visual stimulation, AlienFX allows you to “Go Dark” by disabling all lighting effects until you’re ready to turn them back on.
