In the early 2000s they just used a slightly modified version of the Chenming/Chieftec/*insert other brand with the same case design* case. I'm sure everyone knows which case I'm talking about.

The Aurora is a mATX system marketed toward people who need a good lan rig, where the Area-51 is a mid tower gaming system not meant to really be moved around.

I must admit that I would like the case with the motorized louvers. I would build my own system with that case.

Can you imagine it with a 1200w psu, loaded with HDDs and either 3 way SLI or triple crossfire? Who needs to go to the gym. It would start to weigh more than a 10 - 12 yr old child. Hope you have a strong back. 89 lbs is insane.

I have no need to worry. I have a friend. By the way,without crossfire,sound card etc.the stock configured Area 51 ALX is 84 pounds. No getting away from that weight but who cares? I really like this rig and I have a couple of high end rigs to compare it to.Killswitch should be here Sunday and provide pics etc.

Talking Alienware Alx

I wish that if anyone had some half decent parts that they could be sent and incorporated into the unit. I have a pair of 5970s that would go in there. Ah well. I must admit that there's nothing like building your own. The only thing better would be to build custom rigs for a living. Of course Mnpctech has a great setup.
