The cute little Alienware Alpha was one of our favorite gaming desktops about a year and a half ago packing enough power for better than console graphics into a $500 box that hooked right up to your TV. The long awaited update is here. And is a lot more powerful. It's gonna start at $599 and the graphics card is now a desktop NVIDIA G-Force 960 and it uses new sixth gen. Intel processes, both a big step up from the original Alva. It's still not quite enough for vr so you can no hook up [UNKNOWN] external graphics amplifier which is a sold separately stand alone box that houses a regular desktop graphics card use that and now it's ready for Oculus or Vive.
