AlienFX also can be set to react to events like music, e-mail alerts, and the like. The interior lights automatically go on when you open the side panel, which saves you from having to hold up a light when adding cards or memory.

The theater lighting is battery operated, so it functions even if the system is unplugged. Think of it as being like the light in the refrigerator: It's there when you need it.

Plusses include the system's Blu-ray drive reader and a 1-kilowatt power supply. The ample power supply will let you upgrade the x to your heart's content.

The x's chassis includes the usual cavernous space we expect from the XPS chassis, with even more space since this system lacks the top-of-the-line model's liquid cooling system, which takes up a lot of space. No free DIMM slots are available, but it will take you a while to tax the system's 6GB of memory, even with today's games. The FX is certainly a great system, but you'll hit the ceiling much faster if you try to upgrade.


A minor nit with the Dell x's PSU is that it lacks a hard reset or rear power switch. Thus, if the front power switch fails to respond and your system is irretrievably hung, you may have to pull the power cord. All in all, there's a lot of room in the x's chassis for expansion.

These high-powered components pay off in playable scores for the 3D games we tested. The Dell x's scores on both Crysis 65 fps and World in Conflict 86 fps at 1, by 1, resolution translate into smooth game play. At the more stressful 1, by 1, the x slowed down to an unplayable 15 fps on Crysis but maintained a playable 34 fps score on World in Conflict. This shows that the midpriced x configuration, powered by a single graphics card, makes for a respectable game player, though playing Crysis at the highest resolution would Dell XPS 730 NVIDIA Geforce GTX 280 Graphics a graphics card upgrade.

Into this, Dell has crammed its proprietary H2Ceramic H2C cooling system, which uses a mixture of peltier and water cooling to draw heat away from the overclocked Intel Core i7 3. It's said to be a completely fanless solution, but the rig still made an average but tolerable level of noise, thanks to the Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics cards.

Dell has included some fairly useful utilities on top of its standard level of useless bloatware. The Alienware AFX enables customised colour schemes for the case lighting, which is handy if you're allergic to the colour blue.

In addition, there's the Dell XPS thermal monitor, which, as the name suggests, monitors your thermals. It's nice to see that they are both adjustable from within the operating system, and it adds that extra quality feel to the PC.

In fact, they far exceeded the results that we've had from any other Core i7 rig. It's not like they couldn't have been included, given the cost of this rig, and, at time of writing, they weren't even available on the Dell upgrade path.
