Alienware announces cheaper gaming tower - still not cheap

Alienware on Thursday took the time to announce the new Area-51 750i. This was kind of an odd announcement for them because this is the company's least expensive gaming tower being sold right now. The Area-51 750i comes with the same lightable casing, wiring and stronger power supplies as the more expensive models.

The price starts with the lowest end version due to individual component pricing.  For a higher price you can upgrade to many of the better features seen in Alienwae's catalog such as liquid cooling.  The base model will cost you $1,049 for a3GHz Core 2 Duo, a 750W power supply, a GeForce 9800 GT for video, 2GB of memory and a 250GB hard drive.

That is not such a bad price for an Alienware gaming tower these days.  For those who are looking for something a little more powerful and don't mind forking out a little more money, you can get up to a quad-core 3GHz Core 2 Extreme, a 1,200W power supply, two Radeon HD 4870 X2s, 3TB of hard drives, Blue-ray and 8GB of memory. Alienware is saying that the Area-51 750i will be shipping orders in late November.
