With the recent upgrade of Alienware's desktop Area-51 systems with 790i and Geforce 9800 GX2 graphics card, that same Area-51 is now available with Intel's top of the line Core 2 Extreme QX9770 processor working at 3.2GHz.
With the introduction of this 45nm 3.2GHz processor with 12MB of L2 cache, the system also gets the 1600MHz front side bus. As you may have already guessed, besides pushing the performance this upgrade also pushes the price to a new level of $3,749, or €3,039.26 in Europe. This price includes 512MB Geforce 9600GT Superclocked, 250GB of hard drive space and 2GB of memory.
Alienware expects these high-priced desktops to be ready for shipping sometime in April.
