Aurora with Phenom 9850

Alienware recently updated its Aurora gaming desktop to include an upgrade option for the AMD Phenom 9850 Black Edition processors, which feature the latter company's HyperTransport technology. The Phenom 9850 is a quad-core processor that provides users increased system bandwidth and true multitasking, while also supporting up to four ATI CrossFireX video cards. In addition, users can run either 32-bit or 64-bit applications without additional hardware, and the processor's Cool'n'Quiet technology reduces power consumption, heat output and noise.

When configured-to-order, the base model Aurora featuring the new Phenom processors, as well as an Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT, 2GB of 800MHz DDR2 memory, and a 250GB hard drive, costs $1449.

A pre-configured model is also available, offering dual ATI Radeon 3870X2 graphics cards, 4GB of memory, and a 500GB hard drive. This model sells for $2049.
