Alienware Aurora Online Gaming Edition desktop PC

Alienware is back again with a new computer, and this time round their offering is not one that targets pure desktop gaming, but throws online gamers a lifeline (OK, it is way more than a lifeline but a luxury) in the form of the Aurora Online Gaming Edition desktop PC. Apart from the normal high standards and specifications found in other Alienware computers, this tower has an added incentive to improve the online gaming experience in order to live up to its namesake. It does so by including a Killer NIC K1 network card from Bigfoot Networks that is touted to reduce lag and deliver smoother, more responsive online gameplay. Just in case you're worried this computer lacks the graphical firepower and processing muscle, fret not as it is powered by AMD's Phenom X4 9950 CPU rated at 2.6GHz, accompanied by 4GB RAM and boasts AlienIce 3.0 Video Cooling and ATI's Radeon HD 4870 card. Prices start from $1,899 upwards.

    If anybody has an Alienware Aurora desktop could they please post a review/recommendation because I’m thinking about getting one but I’ve been told other independent vendors can do about the same. But then what about the customer service? Kind of hit and miss no? Im looking to spend like 5 grand? Is that too much for a gaming desktop computer with a nice monitor, speakers and router?
