I'm looking to buy a new Alienware Desktop and I have a few questions and I would like some opinions/feedback before I do.
First of all I'm looking at the Aurora and my number one question is "bloatware". How much comes on a Alienware? When I decided to get back into PC gaming (coming from console) I was so sick of console, I went to the local Wal Mart and bought the only gaming PC they had. It's the first Windows PC I have bought in years and I had forgotten how much "bloatware" they can put on a PC. I got one with a 256Gb SSD and all I have on there is BF1, WoWP, WoT, and War Thunder and it is full. The rest is crap that have no idea about, and unfortunately I don't know what to get rid of and what not. When I bought the PC I have now it was an impulse buy and I new it was only temporary so now its time to get a real gaming PC. So if you can tell me what if any "bloatware" comes on an Alienware I would be grateful.
Second question is HD. Should I get the 512Gb SSD only drive or the 256Gb SSB and the 1Tb HD?
I guess its a no-brainer to get the 1080 TI 11Gb Video Card? I don't really feel like forking over the dough for dual cards just yet.
Also, even though I mention I'm not a big fan of "bloatware" I do love the Xbox App that I use to record game feeds and take screenshots. Does the Windows 10 with Alienware come with this App?
Also I would really like to have Liquid cooled if possible?
Anyway my budget is around, maybe a little under $2.5K, what should I do?
One last thing, I think 16Gb RAM will do for now but aren't these PCs known for the easy ability to upgrade if I want to in the furture? Don't they come with space for 64Gb? And I order one now but later want to add another video card is that possible?
I really want to, in advance, thank anyone who takes the time to read and respond to this.
