Alienware R11 Desktop i7-10700KF CPU, 16GB RAM, 512GB+2TB, RTX 3080, AW2720HF + AW Mouse/Headset/Keyboard $3,761.11 Del @ Dell

2380
LOVEKEANU

Before you balk at the price - Godzbargainers hear me out!

I've done a rough parts calculation based on low-tier components and this is actually a cracking deal for those too lazy to build and want an easy purchase to game asap. This R11 comes with an awesome monitor, and some decent peripherals, albeit very gamer orientated.

i7-10700KF - $450
RTX 3080 - $2000
512GB+2TB - $200
RAM - $100 (Looks to be Kingston Hyper X)
PSU - $200 (From my research, I believe it's a 1000W Gold Efficiency PSU by Delta who make some decent PSUs normally aimed at servers)
AW2720HF - $550 (https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/alienware-27-gaming-monitor-... - it's actually not on sale right now, normal RRP is $900 but you can wait every few weeks to pick it up under $600 so I have used this price)
Mouse - $77.50 (https://deals.dell.com/en-au/productdetail/82i8 - currently on Sale)
Headset - $105.50 (https://deals.dell.com/en-au/productdetail/82hu - currently on sale)
Keyboard - $194.50 (https://deals.dell.com/en-au/productdetail/82ie - currently on sale)

Total - $3900 approximately in parts, not including the CPU cooler (watercooled), the motherboard or the case. It also doesn't include the heartache of stuffing up your build because you don't know what you are doing, or hours of troubleshooting because you plugged your HDMI cable into the motherboard when you had a KF chip (true story when I helped a mate build his PC remotely last year). Plus the Dell warranty from my experience is usually pretty good, especially on their monitors.

The only downsides to this are the RAM which some would say isn't enough. I run the same in my rig at home and haven't had problems with AAA games. In any case, Dell's RAM upgrade offerings are a joke to say the least. Buy this system and spend $109 on another set of Kingston Hyper X RAM and you're set for 4x8GB configuration. The other good thing about the R11 Desktop is pretty much all components are individually upgradable for the future.

Don't forget to shop with CR/SB and save a further 6% coming down to $3558.01 with code LOVEKEANU or if you don't use CR/SB you can still shop using the Qantas Rewards Dell store and pick up 1 QFF point per dollar in spend but the cost will be $3761.11.

  • Upvoted you for good info and effort put into deal..
    Theres prob some that would buy this to strip out the mythical 3080 in it ..
    nice work ..

  • Lol, all it took was a global silicon shortage and cryptorush to make alienware actually worth it for once.

  • Further 6% Cashback with CR or SB also bring it down even more. Should end up being $3558.01 after cashback.

    • Thanks, I'll update. I usually am unsure if CR/SB stacks with LOVEKEANU but ill just put YMMV :)

      • For your and others reference, specifically advertised by Cashrewards is:

        Effective 22/02/21, purchases utilising code LOVEKEANU are eligible for cashback, provided it's not used in conjunction with other unlisted codes.

        So should be all good :)

  • Good price with all these extra accessories and a monitor

  • Are 3080s $2k now? What happened to the 1400-1500 options?

  • Nice post, solid effort. Appreciate the work.

  • Great deal IMO. For a first gaming PC I think this could make someone very happy.

    Comparison to yesterday's similarly priced deal on an Aurora R11 but this one has no accessories or monitor, but has an i9 and 64GB of RAM: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/613668

  • Does it has CPU throttelling or heating issues, like the other XPS?

    • Unfortunately I don't own one so hopefully others can chime in, but I would always recommend a repaste with a quality material and i'd probably look to see if a better fan configuation internally might help as well.

    • What a cracker of a deal - Kills Techfast offerings.
      Buy now, worry later.

    • It doesn’t overheat. I upgraded RAM with 64 gb 4*16 3600 MHz and it is a beast. Had to contact dell support once for some issue and they helped really well until the issue was solved (software not hardware).
      Most importantly you can claim it in tax.

      • And yes, you can OC cpu graphics card and Memory.

      • What model Alienware do you have and what ram did you get?
        Thanks

        • same as specs mentioned by OP but upgraded with crucial RAM (BL2K16G36C16U4RL - wasted around USD70 on RGB - didn't realize that I was ordering RGB model and BL2K16G36C16U4BL will do the same job, unless someone wants to keep the side panels aside). crucial promises to match the memory frequency on these systems. somehow Alienware has locked the memory frequency using XMP profiles and aftermarket kingston hyperx memory doesn't show the same frequency after installation. the original RAM that ships with the system still sits in the desk somewhere with me.

          I upgraded RAM with 64 GB and it resulted this system to be the best system I have ever owned.

  • GPU prices… feeling sad…

  • Good bundle! Got one.
    The monitor+keyboard+mouse+headset make this deal good!

  • Great deal, OP

    Case looks like a type-c input lol

  • It would be prefect if the monitor is 2k instead of 1080p

    • Yeah, running those specs with a 1080 monitor is like strapping a jet engine to a golf cart. Also, 1080 at 27 is a bad spec full stop. I find my 2k 27 to be borderline too grainy. To each their own I guess.

  • Nice, this is the unit I posted on the 3080 deal, of course this has the 3080 upgrade instead of the 3070 offered as standard.

  • Can anyone see what kind of keyboard+mouse+headset are included?

  • Keep in mind that this is water-cooled.

  • Good bundle for sure but the screen is very edge case for only the most competitive players who need 240HZ. I certainly wouldn't feel the need to go beyond the 160hz of my Dell gaming monitor. Also 3080 is 4K or a very high frame rate 1440p class GPU. Seems a waste on a 1080p.

    • Valid points, a good option might be to sell the monitor separately for say $500-600, especially if you already have one.

  • Does anyone knows what is the clock speed for GPU inside this thing? and can it be overclocked?

  • Awesome, now who wants to buy my brand new, unused, Alienware R11? Only asking $2000 cash, but you’ll have to source your own graphics card. /s

  • Has this deal ended. Comes up as $4319 now?

    • Not for me, just clicked through. List price is $3,985.45 on sale without further discounts. In checkout apply LOVEKEANU to save an additional $224.35 plus use CR to save an additional 6% down to $3558.01.

      I'd suggest clearing browser cookies / history and try clicking through again.

      • Thanks… working now.

        Shame you can't get 32mb RAM though? Shows 16 then 64?

        • Read the bottom part of my post. The RAM options that dell offers are a joke.

          64GB Dual Channel DDR4 XMP at 3200MHz; up to 128GB (additional memory sold separately)
          + $1,200.10

          128GB Dual Channel DDR4 XMP at 3200MHz
          + $2,799.50

          Nowhere in the world does RAM come close to costing that much.

          The RAM itself appears to be Kingston Hyper X (I have confirmed that to be the case on many reviews I have looked at). You can buy a matching pair of these sticks for another $110 or so.

          • @toshjammi: yeah, it's kingston hyperx but aftermarket chips won't give you the same frequency… for me 3200 mhz were showing as 2900 mhz on the system…

            after few tries, replaced all the stock RAM with crucial BL2K16G36C16U4RL. the system booted up without any additional step in 3600 mhz ….

  • I plan to get a gaming pc for streaming, esport games not really doing AAA games and browsing etc. Could I downgrade to the 3070 and achieve all this, it takes about $350 off the price too

    • Originally I saw the deal with a 3070, and it became an even better deal with the 3080 because generally the 3080 RRP is around $500 more for similar models such as ASUS ROG Strix 3070 ($1449) vs ASUS ROG Strix 3080 ($1959). Keep in mind those are sold out heavily at those prices. So you can see it that you're only spending $326 more to upgrade to the 3080. At this price point most people would take that option hence that was the reason for posting this deal and not the other.

      As an answer to you specifically, e-sports and the 3070 is a perfect combo IMO so if that better suits your budget, go for that option.

    • I assume you will still use the machine after a few years. if you choose 3080 you can use if for a longer time for just 10% more of the total price

  • Thanks OP,
    I never bought a branded desktop ever, finally bite the bullet
    I downgrade to 3070 considering the monitor, but upgrade SSD to 1TB

  • yeah, as ppl pointed out 1080p monitor with this is dumb as
    1440 p min and 32 inch

    • It really depends on your needs. For competitive gaming, 27" is the sweet spot, and frames win games so 1080p with a fast panel is what a lot of people prefer. If you want more visually impressive stuff in higher resolutions, I'd just sell the monitor separately. You would have no problem getting $500-600 for it easily, and put it towards a different monitor that suits your needs.

      • For competitive gaming, it's 24", but there's a strong argument argument to be made for 27" 2560x1440, which this isn't.

        What marketing spiels you aren't parroting, you're misremembering. And no, they won't get $500 for that monitor, not now, not ever.
