    in YOUR opinion which do you think would run the Oculus Rift better?

  2. I bet that it's probably not that hard to build a computer. But the thing is, I'm a 15 year old girl who doesn't know much about building computers.. So I think I'll just go for the Alienware Aurora r5. It's affordable for me, it looks good, it works fine for me so that's basically what I've decided to do. I'm not an expert in this stuff, and it's much more better than the cheap laptop I have right now.

  3. Its funny as hell how people argue over saving a few hundred dollars… scrubs. Stop looking at high end parts if your really worried about this weeks lunch money

  4. Considering the aurora can hold two high end graphics cards and an overclocked i7.. it honestly makes me curious on who exactly the Area 51 is for? Considering that GTX 1080s can only SLI with two cards at most, you really don't need that extra space for that specific purpose.

    Other than more room for radiators if getting liquid cooled graphics cards or perhaps having a room for more fans in order to ventilate your PC better….what is the advantage of having an extra size and space?

  5. This bad boy just got delivered except I got It built for me changing some stuff up inside like some coolers and cable checks to make it look more neat I also got a new card and motherboard to rock it up to 4K and I just went on to my fav game far cry 3 and OMFG it’s beautiful.

  6. Best Buy has one for $3000
    But it’s slightly specked out above one of their laptops only difference I see is it comes with the GTX 1080 vs the 1070 on the laptop plus liquid cooling and 16gb instead of 8gb… it even worth it or am I missing the point?????

    Could someone care to enlighten me??????

  7. I tried looking for the Area 51 deal for that price and here are the specs for the same price (note: this is the same computer).

    Dual Nvidia Gtx 1080 TIs
    32 GB of 2933 MHz DDR4 RAM
    Intel Core i9 7920X
    1 TB SSD and 2 TB HDD
    1500W PSU with 80+ Gold efficiency and modular cabling
    Hard disk optical drive
    Killer Wireless 2×2 A.C WiFi.

    Alienware has gotten much better with their prices than before.
