Alienware has just launch Area-51 7500 desktop based on power of quad-core Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor.
Alienware Area-51 7500 has an impressive configuration. I wonder if we really need so much power and if we should pay so much money for too much power.

But let me present the configuration. As I already tell you, the CPU from Alienware Area-51 7500 is new launched Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700, a quad-core processor that easily tackles numerous tasks simultaneously. So you can render something in 3DMax, run an antivirus in the background and play your favorite games in same time. This sounds good to me.

The graphics are handling by a SLI by 2 GeForce 8800GTX, too much graphics power for any game at any normal resolution. As we know GeForce 8800GTX demand very much power from power supply. Immediately I search for technical data of Area-51 7500 power supply. I was disappointing because power supply is just a 650-watt Multi-GPU-approved power supply with Active PFC. Maybe is a very good power supply but come on, just 650 watt for 2 power hungry GeForce 8800GTX?!? Seem to me that Alienware should make some little modifications here.

OK, let’s move on at storage. Here I found 4 HDD x 750GB. Wow. It is an impressive 2.5TB of storage. I wonder I do you need a DVD Writer with such a massive storage option?
Now you can disable swapfile because Area-51 7500 has 4GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 800MHz. A lot of RAM :)

The price start at $4 ,107US (£2,104) and the maxim price is sky limit. In the lowest price (if we can name $4 ,107US a low price…) we lose a VGA (so no more SLI), 3 HDD (so only 1 HDD) and a lower speed Intel Core 2 (is good to keep quad-core CPU).
