VR Ready with a Vive-Optimized PC.

VR Ready with a Vive-Optimized PC.

With a VR-ready Alienware PC, you can be the first to experience the future of gaming. Partnering with HTC, Alienware provides a range of systems to bring you most immersive VR experience imaginable. The Alienware Vive-Optimized desktops are unmatched in performance, featuring Intel® processors, and NVIDIA or AMD graphics options.

A legacy of excellence takes shape.

You demand the best systems on Earth. Since our inception, Alienware has strived to deliver incredible gaming performance without sacrifice.

You've never seen anything like the Alienware Area-51. It’s more than an iconic design. It's a perfect convergence of power and beautiful design. We reimagined this system from the inside out, and built it without compromises. It’s an engineering marvel and a completely new experience that performs true to our legacy of excellence.

Triad chassis. Intelligent design.

Get inside.

Get inside.

The Area-51's three corners are built to support 5 times the system's weight. Pivot the system towards you and gain easy access to the rear ports when connecting or disconnecting cables. There is even a button on the back of the chassis that turns on the rear accessibility lighting to reduce the need of having to use a flashlight.

Carry on.

Carry on.

Transport your ultimate gaming rig anywhere. The rugged handles make the Area-51 more natural to carry. The shape and internal component layout are designed to have a low center of gravity to avoid the system from tipping when being lifted.

Easy access.

Easy access.

The angular shape is designed to have all the I/O ports facing you directly, making connecting a USB device, headphones, or even a media card reader easier than on a traditional rectangular chassis design.

Designed to keep cool.

Designed to keep cool.

Internal fans blow fresh ambient air, quietly and directly, onto the graphics cards and the internal cable management enables maximum airflow – satisfying your system’s hunger for cooler air and keeping it performing at its peak. The angled design also provides a large space for hot air to escape where a traditional, rectangular chassis only leaves a small space between it and the wall.

Behold the jaw-dropping power of 4K.

Behold the jaw-dropping power of 12K.

The Area-51 is not only perfect for serious gamers, it’s also the platform of choice for developers and programmers who demand concurring gaming workloads at the highest 4K resolution. It’s not just the highest-performance gaming experience – it’s a breathtaking display you can lose yourself in.

AlienFX uses 20 different colors to create 512 billion unique themes to give your machine a more personalized look. Supported on over 130 titles, lighting zones can be customized to react to things like in game actions, powering on and off, and notifications by pulsing, morphing or simply holding a solid color. Once you’ve finished your theme, you can save and upload it to where you can share your custom creation with others and download any you find. And for times when you want a little less visual stimulation, AlienFX allows you to “Go Dark” by disabling all lighting effects until you’re ready to turn them back on.
