Sometimes, you just have to pull out all the stops, which is essentially what Dell is doing by making its Alienware Aurora gaming desktop available with the option of including an NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z GPU. Alienware notes that the Titan Z boasts 5760 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR5 memory, and 8 TeraFLOPS of compute power. Of course, there’s plenty of other good stuff available for the Aurora.

Dell Alienware Aurora

You can configure a system with an Intel Core i7-4820K (up to 3.9GHz), 8GB (4 x 2GB) of quad-channel DDR3-1600MHz RAM, 2TB 7200rpm HDD, and double-layer 24x CD/DVD burner ODD with a Titan Z for $3,799 (or for a limited time, $3,609.05).

And of course, you can opt for more RAM and faster and/or higher-capacity storage, too. You can also enjoy a liquid cooling setup to keep everything nicely chilled.

You can configure your own Alienware Aurora system here.

Well its good to see Dell pushing into the extreme gaming. (Might have before but I don't follow dell or alienware so if they have already pushed into that market excuse me!) Though I don't see a point as of now to get a Titan Z. That's just me though.

Overpriced as hell...

Aaaaand, I'd still rather build my own. Cheaper and you get that sense of pride that it's your baby.

I like building mine too. It's self rewarding and sometimes punishing too!

I've always loved the look of Alienware computers. But there is no way in hell I'd pay 3700 bucks for a system that when custom built by any other store/computer minded person would cost 2500 is ridiculous. I had a custom laptop built for 2800 bucks and when I compared it to what I would get through Alienware a similar system would've run me well over 3700.

Lights and a fancy case can be custom ordered for cheap, get the parts put it together, sit back and enjoy a system that runs the same, heck use the $1000+ you saved on splurge on a new 4K monitor!

Did any of you notice the price of the system? With a Titan Z and it sells for $3,600? That is a screaming deal.

To my surprise, I think this is priced suprisingly well for A) being an Alienware product and because B ) it has the TITAN Z in it.

Only an nvidia fanboy will buy it

Not even then. A lot of misinformed people or people who believe these are high quality builds will buy it.

It really just depends.
