Alienware Aurora with FX-60 and 512MB SLI
"The machine is decked out with some pretty nice kit. 1TB of storage is a pretty nice number to have, and the FX60 is undeniably the best chip for a machine of this type. We're very happy to see a X-Fi card in here, since that really is a must-have for high-end gamers, especially with its awesome surround sound effects. If there was one area we'd pull this machine up on, it's the RAM. We'd expect, at the minimum, two 1GB sticks to be fitted to allow for upgradability, and we'd ideally want 4GB as standard in here for the price. We found that we couldn't overclock the system using the CPU multiplier, which is unfortunate, since the FX-60 is multiplier unlocked. We'd like a BIOS update pretty quick to allow this to happen, because we suspect there's some headroom in this system."
