Categories Bests & Top Tens, Gaming Tech News

Today we are going to talk about the Alienware Aurora r6 to check whether it is the best-prebuilt gaming pc in August 2017. Dell Alienware range is already a renowned name as far as the gaming devices are concerned. I am choosing Alienware Aurora r6 because it provides you with so much of configuration options that you can even get a budget (<$1000) gaming pc from this range. So, let’s check whether it can be titled as the Best prebuilt gaming pc in 2017.

The Design of the PC looks really good and provides a premium feel that you want from a high-end gaming PC. The well-known logo at the front and a pretty slick design give it the signature Alienware look. The design of the machine provides optimal air intake on the front and right panels and an exhaust fan on top for maximum airflow and cooling of internal components. This is also the first PC by Alienware to support dual graphics and liquid-cooling both inside a single machine.

One of the most important things of this PC is that it offers easy upgrade options for Graphics, Memory and hard drives. You can add up to 5 storage devices to this gaming beast. You can upgrade the memory for up to 64 GBs. The graphics card and hard drive are so beautifully held by the power supply mechanism that you can access them without messing with a single screw. This makes upgrading the graphics card so easy that you don’t ever have to think about installation problems and anything like that.

While you are looking at the amazing design for this PC, why don’t you click some ads on this page? This will not cost you anything but will help me earn some cents. Don’t like the idea, No Problem. Continue to read the full post below.

Another amazing fact that makes it the #1 contender for the best-prebuilt gaming pc in 2017 is the number of configurations options available with it. For the processor, you can choose from the mid-range i5-7400 to the best in class i7-7700k. For Graphics you can start with AMD Rx 560 and can go up to GTX 1080 with 8 GB of GDDR5 memory.

The best configuration that can easily achieve 60 FPS at 4K in most of the current gen games, unless the game is badly optimized for PCs will cost you $1799. This is the price at the time of writing this post. For the processor, It comes with i7-7700k which is overclockable up to 4.4 GHz. It has 16 GB of DDR4 memory running at 2400MHz. And for the storage it has 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD (Boot) + 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s (Storage). However, the storage feels a bit on the lower side but you can upgrade it from the available options.

Other Extra Features Of Alienware Aurora r6

So, other features of this PC includes VR support for most of the configurations except for the $799 one. It comes preloaded with Windows 10 Home. There are many options available for customizing Aurora’s lights to come up with cool color combinations. It looks absolutely amazing when it glows in different color combinations. Another important thing you want from a gaming PC is the number of ports and this doesn’t let you down even in this regard. There are plentiful ports available with this PC including 1 Superspeed 10Gbps USB 3.1 Type-A, 1 SuperSpeed 10Gbps USB 3.1 Type-C and 3 SuperSpeed USB 3.0. At the front, you have the regular microphone and headphone ports with 4 USB 3.0 ports.
