Other features of the system include 45nm quad-core Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 processor overclocked to 4.0GHz frequency and 4GB of DDR3-1333 SDRAM. The system is built on an Intel X38 based mainboard. Area-51 ALX CFX desktop in the above described configuration is a little over $6000. Besides the above listed components, Alienware is ready to supply their system with two 64GB Solid State drives, however in this case you will have to pay extra $1250.
