The Alienware Aurora R9 is the latest rev of the company’s premium gaming desktop for enthusiasts. With a starting price of $969.99, you can get yourself an Aurora R9 that won’t break the bank, but if you have more cash to spend, it’s endlessly upgradable. It can be configured with the most powerful components currently on the market, including Nvidia, Intel, and AMD options. The case itself has some neat features and design cues, as well. The Aurora R9 will be available on August 20, but we had the chance to get a first-hand look at a preview event in New York, so check out the photos, details, and impressions below.
