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 this ready-to-go prebuilt Alienware Aurora gaming PC from Dell.
Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3080 PC for $2199.99
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 9 5900 CPU, which is one of the best processors you can get at the moment, 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 R10 RTX 3070 PC for $1499.99
This is the first time we’ve seen an Alienware Aurora gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3070 priced at under $1500. The RTX 3070 is even more powerful than the previous generation’s fastest video card, the RTX 2080 Ti. This is the card to get if you want to push 144Hz frame rates or ultra high settings (or both) at up to 1440p. It’s powerful enough to handle most 4K gaming as well. It’s paired with some great specs, like a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 7 5800 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3090 PC for $2849.99
If you insist on getting the fastest video card on the market, then this is one of the only pre-built RTX 3090 gaming PCs you’ll find for under $3K. The RTX 3090 is only marginally faster than the RTX 3080 and the RTX 3080 Ti, but it does make for a far superior graphics workstation card thanks to its massive 24GB of GDDR6X RAM (as a comparison, the RTX 3080 only has half the amount). It’s paired with a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 9 5900 12-core processor, 32GB of system RAM, and a 1TB SSD.
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.
17% Off Dell XPS Alder Lake RTX 30XX Gaming PC
Compared to the previous generation, the new Dell XPS gaming PC is larger in volume (27L vs 19L) and provides more clearance for the CPU and GPU area for much better airflow. That’s important because the new 12th generation Alder Lake processors can run hot under intense loads. The Alder Lake CPU is currently the king of gaming processors; it eclipses all similarly priced AMD processors in gaming and (in most cases) workstation performance. Additionally, the new Dell XPS boasts an Intel Z960 chipset motherboard, DDR5 RAM, and a PCI-E 5.0 bus for your RTX 30 series video card. Your video cards in these two configs are no slouches either: the RTX 3070 is the ultimate card for gaming at 1440p at 144fps or higher, and the RTX 3080 Ti is pretty much the best 4K/VR gaming card out there.
