Summary: The Alienware x51 r2 is a "beast" of a machine. Such high quality power, delivered in a "console like" tower. I only have one complaint towards Dell( shipped my x51 after production and did not test to see if it even turned on). I was so happy that I finally recieved the alienware so you know i rushed home to open it up. It was a shame that it didn't even turn on because of dell's production team. Boo dell, Yay alienware!
Summary: Besides looking absolutely awesome, this computer is my dream computer come true. It runs super quiet, fast, the graphics are amazing, the loading times are close to none...I just am in love with this machine!
Summary: I have purchased three different X51s. One R1 for me and one for my dad. And I upgraded to the X51 R2, and passed off the R1 to a friend. They have all been very good gaming systems. I prefer NVidia cards, with the GeForce Experience. I was able to upgrade the R1s video cards with no troubles at all. They both had the OEM 555, and I added 660's to those systems. I have not needed to upgrade the 670 to 760i in the R2.
Summary: This is my first Alien and I will never buy anything else ever again. The X51 is awesome in performance and totally affordable for a serious gamer. I would recommend an Alien to all my gaming friends. I truly love this machine!
Summary: I do love my new system. It goes beyond a normal PC. The speed of the the system is wonderfull. Plus the extra options of changing little things like the color of the case or keyborad is just a fun touch.
