Alienware X51

While the console fanboys leave their gaming fates up to Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo, the PC gamer says “funk that noise!” or some other cheesy pseudo-swear. See, tomorrow’s console’s specs are available today with a beast like the Alienware X51 ($699). Popping with graphics power, this digital demon delivers crazy-crisp graphics on the monitor of your choice. With a 1GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 5552 graphics card and a speedy Intel Core i7-2600 processor, you’re assured of chewing through any game any developer can throw at you. And just like your randy ex-lady, the X51 works well on its side or standing upright. Game on.
