Dell Alienware Aurora R10 Gaming Desktop Review

Latest pricing, specs and Alienware gaming PC review. Updated July 2022. How many PC games will it run? Is it a good choice for a PC gamer? Should you buy this Alienware computer?

For a PC gamer, the most important component in the system is the graphics card. This is the supermodel part that will make or break the setup and is responsible for making all your games look awesome. The more powerful the graphics card the higher, smoother frame rates you will get, the higher resolution you can run at, and the better your games will look. For graphics, this Alienware computer has a AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. We rate this AMD GPU as powerful enough to run 969 games at a recommended level.

Next on the list has to be the CPU. The processor at the heart of your gaming desktop is the brains of the outfit, and is vital for making sure that you can get the most out of your graphics card when it comes to gaming performance. The number of cores isn’t vital for games, beyond four cores you get diminishing returns, but you want to make sure what you do have run at a high frequency. The Dell Alienware Aurora R10 Gaming Desktop has a AMD Ryzen 9 3900 capable of running at 3.1 GHz. That level of power from an AMD chip means it is rated to run 1000 of the most popular 1000 PC games at a recommended level.

The level of RAM in a gaming desktop is also important. More system memory allows your PC to churn through large amounts of data quickly, and for today’s massive open gameworlds it’s vital to have that information accessed quickly to speed up game loads. Having too little RAM can mean laggy frames and a poor experience.

This rig comes with a whopping 32 GB of system RAM. More system memory will allow you to do more intensive PC work, such as easy video editing of your streams, but it’s not going to make your games run faster.

This pre-built gaming PC can run GTA V, PUBG, Red Dead Redemption 2, Apex Legends, Minecraft and Fortnite - some of the the biggest PC games at a recommended level.

Coming in at $2271.22 this rig falls into our enthusiast category of gaming PCs under $3000. The setup can run 976 of our target games at recommended level.
