Just ordered the following aurora alx. I am aware the new haswell will be included in the next few days but from what i can gather no real improvement on this......and no doubt alienware will increase the price.

im new (ish) to alienware, did have a m11x a couple of years ago but did not really like it so sent it back. was going to get the new imac 27" as i like the form factor but i just know bootcamp will not be as good as a native gaming rig and no doubt in 18 months the gpu will be rubbish!

Welcome!

I think you should throw an SSD in there yourself too and she'll awesome! Are they giving you an option of the new 700 series GPU's there yet? Or are the 670's going for a good deal?

Yup, got a Samsung 500gb ssd and a cage from Amazon as I believe ssd does not fit in the HD slots of the alx.

Ahh too bad but a discount is good and 2 x 670's is still a lot of power. That's what my ALX has too but Dell down here dis not give an option for 670's.

I looked at 2 680's but that was just a bit rich for my wallet and i dont think the extra grunt was worth it. I was just going to go single card but I have never had sli so I thought what the hell!
