Dell has released the Alienware X51, its latest gaming PC, offering an affordable performance rig with room for upgrades.

 
Consumers have a choice of an Intel Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 processor, a 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 545 or GTX 555 graphics card, and 4GB or 8GB of DDR3 RAM, all on a Mini-ITX motherboard. Other features include a 1TB hard drive and a slot-loading dual layer DVD burner, with the option to add a more expensive Blu-ray disc reader.
 
It also comes with an Alienware 240 Watt PSU, which can be upgraded to a 330 Watt version, which are not exactly the most powerful for a gaming system, but they will do for lower specs. 
 
It supports internal high-definition 7.1 performance audio and comes with Waves MAXX Audio Software. Other software includes the Alienware Command Centre, and, of course, Windows 7 Home Premium.

US and Canadian buyers can get access to the Alienware Gaming Services, which offers technical support for the latest games, such as setup, performance optimisation, customisation, and troubleshooting.
 
Let's not forget the chassis, which, like other Alienware rigs, looks pretty awesome.
 
The base price for the X51 starts at $699, £699 or €799, considerably lower than other Alienware systems, making it one of the more affordable gaming computers.
