Alienware Alpha Owners Club! - Page 10

post #91 of 2134
Do u guys think that trading my ps4 for the alpha would be a bad choice for 1 game which would be world of warcraft?

Im coming back to pc gaming but only for WoW.

Well if you're not going to play any other games then sure. But you can build a better PC for the money, if it doesn't need to be this small (or are you directly swapping from the PS4 to the Alpha?)

I have a couple choices trade my ps4 with 6 games( gta 5, unity, black flag, dragon age, telltale walking dead season 1 and 2) fir an alpha or sell it all and buy a pc which will take time. I have 720 into the ps4 so not sure what i can get out of it.

Lets say i got 550 id only have 550 since im broke lol

All the components are suitable and just use a good recommended thermal paste. Alpha is very easy to upgrade since its a pc.

One other question actually, can anyone recommend a good gaming mouse / keyboard - pref wireless

looking currently at the razer naga epic mouse but have no idea for the keyboard
post #96 of 2134
If you can sit tight for a little while, the roccat sova will be coming out soon.

Its pretty much designed for this type of computer. Its wireless, has a place to plug in a mouse. And its got a big mouse pad built into the side of it.

that looks quite interesting actually, though I'm building something i wanted to get together quite quickly but i might see how it is when it releases and pick it up if the reviews are favourable - just done some measurements and can get away with wired for now so picked up a Razer Deathstalker to go with the Naga mouse
post #98 of 2134
If not that, the Razer Turret is also similar. It's a bit worse (chiclet keyboard, small mousepad area) but its also an option.
post #99 of 2134

Yes the razer turret is actually pretty cool too, much more compact, it folds in half and has a docking station when not in use.

500 gb Crucial SSD

Intel Core i5-4690S 3.90 Ghz

I purchased the base as i got a better deal buying the components rather than the next model up in price.


Would those parts be suitable and is the CPU easy to change - not seen many guides for this, also what thermal paste would you recommend .

A few other people have posted that upgrading the cpu doesn't give you much. So, you may want to think about returning it or at least reading through earlier posts on the subject first.
