What makes the Alienware AW3821DW great?

Dell and its subsidiary Alienware are no strangers to our list of the best pre-built gaming PCs. Throughout our various laptop, desktop, and PC accessory reviews, Alienware has repeatedly proven to be an excellent brand to go with. So, I am more than happy to recommend the Aurora R15 to anyone looking for a high-end pre-built gaming desktop. It even comes with a keyboard and mouse, so all you need after that is one of the best gaming monitors

To be clear, the configuration that's specifically mentioned in the above deal is for the base options — Windows 11 Home, AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, RTX 4090, 32GB RAM, and a 2TB M.2 PCle NVMe SSD. This makes it a very powerful gaming desktop that can easily handle Ultra graphics in games. 

Really, the only downside is the Aurora R15 is that it doesn't have as much upgrade potential as some other options out there. But if you're going for a pre-built PC then this likely isn't a problem. Additionally, if you don't like this specific configuration shown in the deal above, you can customize these options as you see fit and still claim this major discount — as long as you do so before time runs out or all of the special offers have been claimed. Just note that the price will go up as you choose other options. 

As far as gaming desktops go, the Aurora R15 offers a good range of ports including a total of nine USB-A ports, three USB-C ports, S/PDIG Digital Outputs, DisplayPorts, and an HDMI port. That's plenty of connections to work with your best PC gaming accessories or monitors. 

Aside from actual features, the casing has a window on the side where you can view the inside of the Aurora R15. What's more, the free Alienware Command Center software allows you to customize RGB lighting to get the look and effects you specifically want from the desktop. It's bound to look awesome in any room you put it in.
