Alienware Area 51 vs Aurora R5

For those who are both gaming and PC illiterate, I will try and make this comparison between Dell’s Alienware Area 51 vs Aurora R5 easy to understand. The first thing to understand is that these are PCs. They are not merely game stations, like Nintendo and PlayStation. There is no comparison. The second thing to understand is if you decide you want to invest in a desktop gaming system, then invest you will. The amount of investment depends primarily on he same factors you would consider when buying any PC – how much power and how much memory you will need.

For most of us, the idea of devoting 1 TB to a PC used for gaming is pretty crazy, 8 TB is just insane, but that is going from one extreme to the other, there is much more in between from which to choose. Both run on a Windows 10 operating system, and like all PCs that is even upgradable. Both machine are towers. Then Alien Area 51 being thelargest / tallest of the two, is also the most powerful and expensive. Both are made of the same materials, while some do no seem too happy with exterior plastic, it is the same material Dell makes all their PC towers with.

Gamers who are serious about gaming and do not want to brother with continuous upgrades will want to get a machine with a little more power and memory. This will not be cheap. However, neither is upgrading every couple of years or having to buy a new machine like those “other guys” mentioned above.
