Benefits:

– The Intel Hex Core i7-8700 will satisfy your processing needs and more. Are you a gamer? Not a problem. This processor can handle it without bottlenecking the 1080ti. You want to do some content creation or other CPU heavy tasks? Also not a problem. The multicore performance for this processor is phenomenal, and with the impressive boost speeds, this CPU also has some impressive single-core performance numbers!
– The 1080ti is one of the most (some would argue the most) powerful GPUs in the world. It can run games in 4k at a steady 60 fps on ultra settings. In some games it defeats its big brother, the GTX Titan X Pascal.
– With a 2 TB hard drive, the Alienware Aurora R7 AWAUR7-7040SLV-PUS provides plenty of storage space. On top of the 2 TB hard drive, it also has a 256 GB SSD.
– It supports the lighting-fast 802.11ac wifi protocol, so don’t worry about your internet speed being bottlenecked by a weak wireless connection.
– It includes an 850 W power supply, so you won’t have to worry about upgrading your PSU if you’d like to add more parts in the future.

Downside:

– The price is fairly high. This desktop sells for about $2,099.99. That’s out of the reach for most, but if you can afford it, you won’t be disappointed. For the performance that’s packed into the Alienware Aurora R7 AWAUR7-7040SLV-PUS, that price point is fairly good.
– The Core i7-8700 does not support overclocking and its base clock is a bit slower than its 8700K big brother, but the difference will be negligible in gaming, and not overtly significant in CPU heavy tasks.

Verdict:

This PC will, and can handle anything you throw at it. No matter how demanding the game and/or application, the Alienware Aurora R7 AWAUR7-7040SLV-PUS will take it in stride. With its unprecedented 4k gaming performance, if you’re able to afford it and you already have a 4k display, this system is definitely worth its $2,099.99 price point.
