Do you need a rig with considerably more power? If you’ve been on the lookout for the extremely elusive RTX 3080 video card for your (up to 4K) gaming needs, then check out these ready-to-go prebuilt Alienware Aurora gaming PCs from Dell.
Alienware Aurora Ryzen 7 RTX 3080 PC for $1799.99
The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5900 CPU, which is still one of the best processors out there, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It’s been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.
Alienware Aurora Ryzen 9 RTX 3080 PC for $1899.99
For only $100 more, you can upgrade that AMD Ryzen 7 CPU to a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 9 5900 CPU, one of the best processors you can get for both gaming and workstation tasks.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3090 PC for $2599.99
The RTX 3090 is one of the fastest video cards you can get. The only card faster is the RTX 3090 Ti, which commands an eye watering MSRP of $2000, if you can even find it at MSRP. It’s a bit faster than the RTX 3080 Ti in gaming, but it especially shines in graphics workstation performance, where its 24GB of VRAM pulls it away from the rest of the pack by a very significant margin. The PC also boasts a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 9 5900 CPU, one of the best processors you can get, a generous 32GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3060 PC for $1249.99
The RTX 3060 is no slouch; its performance is superior to the RTX 2060 SUPER and almost matches the RTX 2070 SUPER in some games. It will easily handle all of your games at up to 1440p. It’s paired with a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and a 1000W power supply.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 2080 SUPER PC for $1399
The RTX 2080 SUPER might be a generation old, but it’s still a very competent video card. It compares roughly to the RTX 3060 Ti and supports both DLSS and ray tracing. It easily competes with RTX 30 series gaming PCs in the same price range. This PC also features liquid cooling for the processor and a generous 1000W power supply.
Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED Gaming Monitor
The first QD-OLED panel on the market
After much anticipation, Dell is now offering the Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED gaming monitor for $1299.99 on its website. Although by no means inexpensive, this is the first ever QD-OLED monitor we’ve seen and thus the price point is surprisingly reasonable for the new tech. Undoubtedly due to the hype, it has been going in and out of stock throughout the day, so don’t hesitate if you’ve been waiting for this release. The estimated delivery date has already been extended all the way out to April 30.
QD-OLED technology was a big hit at this year’s CES and Samsung earned the “Best of Innovation 2022” award for it. The QD OLED panel uses quantum dot technology to more efficiently produce higher peak brightness levels compared to traditional OLED TVs without losing the color accuracy and range and wide viewing angles that OLEDs are known for. Although Samsung is the one that publicized the new technology, it is Alienware that will be deputing it first to the consumer market with this AW3423DW monitor.
