Geek deals Alienware X51 Desktop gaming PC

first_imgComputers have thankfully been on a course to merge from geeky hardware to chic home appliances. Gone are the days of big beige boxes that absorb your floor space and sucked the aesthetics out of an otherwise blended room.Alienware is taking this a step further with their X51 desktop. You’ll notice it doesn’t quite match the audacious, “out of this world” design that most of their PCs have. Instead, it looks more of a cross between a PlayStation and Xbox. Even its dimensions are comparable to a game console, measuring in at less than 4 inches thick and roughly 13 x 12.5 inches square.Don’t let its diminutive dimensions fool you though, the X51 comes well equipped as a general-purpose, media-centric, and gaming PC. Intel’s 3rd generation quad-core processors power everything, giving you a 15% performance and power efficiency boost over the last gen CPUs.Features like USB 3.0, Wireless-N, HDMI, 7.1 surround sound, and a slot-loading optical drive are standard. Of course no gaming PC would be complete without some graphics horsepower, with NVIDIA providing their GeForce GT 545 1GB or GTX 555 1GB GPUs.Being a premium product, we don’t see many sales on the X51 and this deal offers the lowest price we have seen yet. The entry-level system with Core i5, 6GB RAM, 1TB HDD, and 1GB GT 545 graphics comes to $799 with free shipping, after a coupon code. For those that want a little more horsepower, you can opt for the Core i7 model with 8GB RAM, 2TB HDD, and 1GB GTX 555 graphics at $1,099.99 with free shipping (no coupon available).Click here to get the Core i5 $799 system or click here for the Core i7 $1,099 system.
