The Alienware Aurora R4 is a veritable gaming powerhouse — albeit an expensive one, starting at $2199. That money will get you some serious hardware though — the Aurora packs a liquid cooled six-core Intel i7 processor, support for dual graphics cards as powerful as the AMD Radeon HD 6950, and supports up to a whopping 16GB of RAM and up to a 2TB hard drive.
