For an extra $100 the x51 will get a AMD's Radeon R9 270X card. This will mean that the Core i7 model will hit the shops at $1,200. The upside is that this configuration brings the chipset maker's Eyefinity tech for multi-monitor support and might think about attempting gaming on it beyond 1080p.
This means that the X51 can play with Mantle supports the latest DirectX 11.2 graphics features with the GCN architecture. It also has Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio Support- 7.1 channel surround sound over HDMI and DisplayPort. While $1200 is an expensive PC where we come from, it is still viable for those who want to get a bit of depth to their games. Alienware also make pretty good rigs.
