Browse the selection of Alienware™ desktop computers available at Staples® to find a gaming PC powerful enough to play all your favorite video games. This Dell™ gaming-centric brand makes high-performance desktop PCs for both casual and hardcore gamers. Its computers combine impressive hardware with eye-catching designs.

Choose From Different Configurations of Alienware Desktop Computers
Alienware gaming computers come in multiple form factors. You can choose one of the console-size models if you want a gaming PC that is just as compact as your PS4™ or Xbox One®. The brand also offers powerful desktops housed in midsized and full-sized towers. The smallest units are ideal for casual gamers and those looking for their first gaming PC. Their CPU options start with dual-core Intel® Core™ i3 processors and go all the way up to quad-core Intel Core i7 chips. Available RAM sizes include 8GB and 16GB modules. Users who need a faster and more powerful desktop computer, should consider models that house their hardware inside taller towers. These boast overclocked processors, up to 64GB RAM, more storage spaces, and liquid cooling. With such configurations, they can smoothly run games at 4K resolution and play VR games.

Key Features to Look for When Shopping for High-End Alienware Desktop Computers
A fast, multi-core processor is an essential feature when looking for a high-end gaming desktop. You should pair this with an SSD for storage. Solid state drives are faster and consume less power than hard disk drives. Computers with SSDs boot up, transfer files, and launch programs faster than those equipped with HDDs. However, the most important hardware in a gaming PC is the graphics card. The computer offloads graphics processing to a discrete graphics card built solely for that purpose.

Alienware uses NVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX and AMD Radeon™ cards for its desktop computers. These high-end GPUs produce silky smooth frame rates even when rendering gameplay graphics at high resolutions. You should also note the video memory capacity of the graphics card you select. The minimum memory to look for is 2GB. Video cards with 4GB and higher deliver higher frame rates and are ideal for graphic-intensive games.

Can You Upgrade Alienware Desktop Computers?
Yes. This brand makes desktop PCs that users can easily upgrade. You can swap components like HDDs, SSDs, graphics cards, and RAM modules. Alienware designs its PC towers so that gamers do not require tools to open them.

What Kinds of Monitor Should You Pair With Alienware Desktop Computers?
Look for a widescreen monitor with an IPS or TN panel. While TN screens offer faster response times, IPS units deliver more accurate colors and wider viewing angles. Pick a full HD display with a minimum refresh rate of 60Hz. For a sharper and more responsive display, get a 2K or 4K monitor with a refresh rate of 120Hz or higher.

What Operating Systems Do Alienware Desktop Computers Run?
Most of them run Windows® operating system. A few have SteamOS installed. Based on Linux™, this is an operating system optimized for the Steam® gaming service.
