For new PC gamers, Dell is offering a "budget-friendly" desktop gaming option. These two new gaming accessories will help you be best prepared for any fight that comes to you and features the same Legend Industrial design.

Dell showcased the prototype of the Alienware AW5520QF 55-inch OLED gaming monitor back in January during CES 2019.

The rest of Dell's announcements include a pair of gaming monitors (besides the aforementioned 55-inch OLED).

The 55-inch AW5520QF 4K OLED gaming display offers a variable refresh rate up to 120Hz using AMD's FreeSync standard. Customise the gaming experience with AlienFX lighting, gaming-centric on-screen display (OSD) and a remote control whether having the monitor placed on the gaming desk or mounted on the wall, thanks to the included VESA mount adapter. The AW5520QF will become available in the U.S. from 30 Sept starting at $3,999.

Here's Alienware's latest entry to the ultrawide angle gaming monitor. This has a 1900R curved, wide 21:9 WQHD-resolution IPS screen. It supports 3440 x 1440 resolution, a 120Hz refresh, and 2ms response time with Nvidia G-Sync technology. It also features RGB LEDs for immersive lighting effects and a game-optimised on-screen menu for setting options.

Alienware says that it built the new Aurora R9 with improved airflow in mind, so the new rig has been built with less obstruction than the previous design meaning airflow increases leading to cooler temps.

The Alienware Aurora R9 is launching with Intel processors ranging from the 9th Gen Intel Core i3 9100 to the 9th Gen Core i9 9900K, which has eight cores, 16MB Cache, and can be overclocked up to 4.7GHz across all cores.

That's a lot to pay, but then the Alienware AW5520QF is different from most other displays calling themselves gaming hardware on the market.

Dell launched a 16000 DPI wireless mouse with custom adjustable scroll wheel and 7 programmable buttons and an RGB mechanical gaming keyboard with the latest Cherry MX Red keys.

Introducing Dell's first Dell Gaming desktop - the G5. The Dell G5 Desktop is available in the United States from August 19 and its price starts at $629. PCIe NVMe SSDs up to 2TB in size can be optioned, and the system supports a range of graphics options including the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and the entire family of NVIDIA GeForce RTX cards (albeit without the Super variants). Optimal cooling design along with four thermal mode options that can be set in the Alienware Command Center, provide the ability to adjust to your needs, whether gaming, working, studying or watching videos. A distinctive, gamer-inspired design with optional blue LED lighting and optional clear window side panel gives the G5 gaming desktop a dynamic look and feel.

Following its launch at Gamescom this week, the new Alienware Aurora R9 is now available starting at $970. It might look like a television, except that you can't hook an antenna up to it, but it has all the features of a high-end PC gaming monitor. In terms of performance, gamers can expect up to a 165Hz refresh and the screen uses AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology for smooth visuals. USA availability August 28, starting at United States dollars 599.99.
