So now it begins…

I mentioned the Star Wars Alienware Auroras last month in a post, and I just received the notice that they are preselling them for an estimated ship date of June 8th or something like that. Let me refresh your memory:

I just finished configuring mine for a grand total of $3,178.00… Not too shabby. The specs are insane.
[list]
[*]AMD 64 4000 HT
[*]2GB of DDR DDR PC 3200 RAM
[*][b]Dual[/b] NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT PCI Express 128MB DDR3
[*]74GB SATA 10,000 RPM boot drive & secondary Drive
[*]Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS High Def. 7.1 Surround
[*]16x Dual Layer DVD±R/W Drive
[*]Creative Inspire T5400 5.1 74-Watt Speakers
[/list]
The list goes on. It’s a beast of a machine with awesome graphics on the tower. Which path to choose, the way of the Jedi or the Dark Side. It’s a tough choice – and if I could blow 6 g’s – I’d get both.

Now see what I have to do now, is figure out how much it would cost me to build a similar system and ask myself if the Star Wars graphics on the tower are worth the extra duckets… Probably not, but I feel I would be remiss if I did not at least try and convince myself that it’s a good deal.

  1. Woo Hoo!! I would love one of these…mine was $3800 smackers…And I got the same parts from NewEgg for about $1600…maybe they will sell just the case… 😉

  2. I’m guessing not. Those AMD 64 4000+ are pretty pricy coming in at around $550 bucks +/-. Fast though.

    Just need to get some high res images, and make some stickers for the sides of your case & :: POOF :: instant Star Wars computer…
