Desktop
Choose an Alienware™ gaming desktop for its impressive looks and powerful hardware. As a brand dedicated to gaming computers, Alienware builds customizable systems to meet the requirements of different types of users. Unlike the blocky towers of most gaming systems, these desktop computers have iconic designs characterized by sharp lines, beveled edges, and glowing logos. You can find a wide selection of gaming computers from Alienware and other top brands at Staples®.

Choose the Right Alienware Gaming Desktop Configuration
This brand's gaming desktops come in multiple form factors ranging from compact units that are no bigger than game consoles to towers meant to sit under computer desks. The PCs also come in different configurations and the right hardware specs depend on the types of games you play. For example, you only need a gaming desktop with an Intel® Core™ i3 processor if you mostly play casual games. Such entry-level models usually have 4GB RAM too. For more demanding PC games, Alienware offers its desktop computers with up to Core i7 processors. Hardcore gamers may choose units with overclocked processors. RAM size options go as high as 64GB while most systems combine hard disk and solid state drives to enjoy fast boot times and lots of storage space for big game files.

Consider GPU When Selecting Your Alienware Gaming Desktop
Since a gaming PC runs graphics-intensive applications, its GPU is just as important as its CPU. Alienware mostly equips its gaming desktops with NVIDIA® GeForce® and AMD Radeon™ chips. These discrete graphics cards improve your gaming performance and experience. Pick a model with a high-end GPU to enjoy lag-free gameplay, high frame rates, and high-definition graphics. If you have a dual-monitor setup, you may need two graphics cards to drive the displays. High-end GPUs also make it possible to play games at their highest settings and enjoy them at 4K and higher resolutions. Note that each graphics card includes its own video RAM. Look for an Alienware gaming PC with a minimum VRAM of 2GB. To play resource-intensive titles, opt for a desktop that has a GPU with 4, 6, or 8GB of VRAM.

Are Alienware Gaming Desktop PCs VR-Ready?
Some of them are VR-ready. These models can play virtual reality games at high frame rates and help users avoid simulation sickness. VR headset makers recommend gaming PCs with at least sixth-generation Core i3 processors, 4 to 8GB RAM, and mid-range GPUs. For smooth VR gameplay, you should get a model with at least a Core i5 processor and 8GB RAM.

Can You Upgrade Your Alienware Gaming Desktop?
Yes. Alienware makes its gaming desktops easy to upgrade. You don't need tools to open the chassis of their desktop PCs. Swappable parts include RAM, storage media, and graphics cards.

Do You Need a Graphics Amplifier for Your Alienware Gaming Desktop?
The Alienware graphics amplifier is a standalone unit for boosting the graphics performance of select gaming laptops and desktops from the brand. Once connected, it switches off the internal GPU of a gaming PC and switches all graphics processing to the high-performance GPU in the amplifier. You should consider one of these if you want to give your gaming PC a performance boost for certain games.
