Default New Alienwares?

Hey Guys,

What do you think of the new Alienware Aurora and Aurora ALX design? It's now a micro-atx case and it doesn't look like it has a lot of space inside there. Also, the Alienware website has been mostly transferred to Dell's website. What do you gusy think?

You are actually wrong about that. The highest power supply you can get is 875W. the highest performance RAM you can get in one of them is 24GB of DDR3-1333 Corsair Dominators. You can get several different configurations of the system. They have really improved it and gives better bang for the buck.
