Came across this R11, with the 3080 and use LOVEKEANU discount code you can pick it up for $3,231.00
Also use that Cashrewards for an extra 6% cash back (excl. GST). Potentially less if components are itemized.
Edit: I just bought this setup and cashrewards has tracked it as $88.12 (so total $3,142.88)
(slightly cheaper than $3254.08 the last one I posted, but now with screen and other accessories) https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/616191
You could definitely play around with this or potentially add components (check your warranty etc)

Dell Alienware 27 Monitor – AW2720HF maybe get this for $400-$600 in a rush
on dell site $584.34 https://deals.dell.com/en-au/productdetail/8l3w
Alienware 510M Gaming Mouse – AW510M; $69.75 https://deals.dell.com/en-au/productdetail/8jos
Alienware 510H 7.1 Gaming Headset AW510H – Dark Side of the Moon; $94.95 on https://deals.dell.com/en-au/productdetail/8joc
Alienware 510K Low-Profile RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (US English) AW510K- Dark Side of the Moon – as low as $149 on ebay.com.au
Lunar versions $173.25 on https://deals.dell.com/en-au/productdetail/8jp6
Questionably another $500 or more in value
If you take dell’s pricing (with a Lunar keyboard instead), the extras comes to $922.29.
Someone mentioned this in the comments of the other deal
My comments/deals have been lifted from other threads before. So does it matter? It’s an independent deal from the original.
I posted a comment in 1 of the other deals, that got 1 up, then was turned into a 200+ deal. I’ve been posting these recently and honestly can’t say I saw that comment. I just saw another Dell deal and thought to check.
Fair enough, not everyone digs through the comments so it’s own post is probably a good idea.
I’m going to mention this in the comments of your comment:
This monitor has a real world value of $400 max due to general prices and Dell’s own sales. If you get wildly lucky, you might get someone on eBay panic buying it for $600, but that’s a pretty speculative effort, not to mention morally bankrupt.
GPU supply and price drops are coming, source:
This driver updates the hash limiter for the GeForce RTX 3060 12GB and is required for product shipped starting mid-May.
Hopefully it works properly this time. Demands is pretty high for the cards even without the miners so I don’t see it dropping dramatically soon but more stock being available is definitely a big step in the right direction.
I don’t think I’ve commented on the value of the monitor but I’d say the extra ~$500 of this bundle is worth it over the other deal if you don’t already have a gaming monitor, keyboard, mouse and headset. Not to mention better CPU and a bigger HDD.
A 1440p 144Hz monitor would have been a much better fit for the rest of the build though
Man, Dell must really loooove Keanu Reeves or something.
I think this is a decent enough deal considering the state of the market right now. RAM and storage aren’t a big deal, but like the guy above said, AMD would have been nicer, if not the 5900X (could easily upgrade to it later down the line).
Yeah, can’t believe how long this code has been active, lol.
It was there before Cyberpunk release and they kept the code despite the negative response to the game
cyberpunk is meh, but keanu is still goat
Seems like Intel CPUs are just easier get, not to mention Dell loves making custom everything, so adapting to AMD would likely not be easy
Dell just aren’t interested in offering AMD seriously. They have a tiny selection and won’t put them in their best laptops like XPS
Will this thing run ok without the GPU? Just wondering how stupid you would be to buy this and sell the GPU for working from home?
You need a GPU.
These i7s don’t have an igpu so you’d need to find another.
My advise is to buy a 2D graphic card like this https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/274292755462?hash=item3fdd1f4c06…, so you can focus on work.
No HDMI/DP port that most monitors accept nowadays?
For real though, at least get something like a GT 1030 that has a VP9 hardware decoder so that YouTube plays back smoothly.
…though I guess YouTube is also a distraction lol.
this is a KF so it doesn’t have integrated graphics. You could possibly just sell that 3080 and get a GT1030 to get a display output. Won’t need to worry about any power connectors either since it’s powered through the PCI-E slot.
It says 6% on Alienware, 1.5% on Monitors and 0% on accessories cahsback. Not sure if CR would track the full amount, partially or would get rejected.
Added an edit to suggest it maybe less.
is the kb, mouse and headset included in the $3231 price? Or just the monitor? When i add to cart doesn’t mention anything regarding those.
If you add to cart then click on ‘Show Full Specs’ and scroll down, you’ll see
Alienware 510M Gaming Mouse – AW510M; Alienware 510H 7.1 Gaming Headset AW510H – Dark Side of the Moon; Alienware 510K Low-Profile RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (US English) AW510K- Dark Side of the Moon”
@Testeagle: I just realised this. That makes this a ridiculously good deal now.
@jace88: Yeah I thought this was good at $3254.08, but the same with Monitor and Accessories sealed it for me.
@Testeagle: Are those estimated delivery times reliable? I’m about to buy now but those delivery times are what’s stopping me.
FYI, I finally bit the bullet and bought this setup and cashrewards has tracked it as $88.12
Seems it valued the PC at $1500.
I’m having a hard time choosing between this, and the HP omen 32gb ram 10700k 1tbssd and 3 cooler GPU(better looking case too) which I can get for $3000.
If I’m to buy this bundle, I need to sell at least the monitor for $400 to get the value of the HP. Would bring it down to $2800 and can upgrade at least the RAM to 32gb.. However the Omens have better cooling of the case and GPU. Decisions,decisions…
Is that in stock or made to order? Happen to have a link?
@Testeagle: student store, it is $4000 and i have a 25% off voucher
student store has it $4k, -25% =$3000.
I’m thinking it’s a much better deal because of the 3 fan GPU, better case cooling and nicer looking…
I guess I might sleep on it and just wait for a better deal. Everytime I’ve thought i’ve missed out something, something better shows up lol
@Winston100s: Ah not bad. Might be worth considering that then.
@Winston100s: Was it difficult to get the 25% off voucher?
@jace88: that is from 6 months ago for a canceled transacation on an obelisk desktop
My shopback tracked $172.19. Although I have another $100 advantage discount code applied since I recently bought another laptop. So without code should be a bit more. Approved by 15th July, so need to see what happens then
I’m waiting for my CR to track too! I also bit the bullet. Debated upgrading CPU but decided i9 bragging rights without much performance gains not worth $300.
EDIT: Mine tracked AUD 176.24
Pairing a RTX 3080 with a 1080p monitor seems kind of odd, although I suppose maybe its so you could hit the 240hz refresh rate. I’d imagine a high refresh rate 1440p monitor would be a better match.
maybe dell is clearing these 1080p gaming monitor.
You can get 1080p 360Hz these days, and 1440p 240Hz.
What’s more perplexing is the people who actually manage to sell the monitor for $600, presumably relying on product research that involves exclusively researching 27″ Dell 240Hz monitors. I actually got a thread ban last time for calling it a scummy practice.
Personally the screen is a bonus which I’m gonna give to the missus for her PC. Still worth a few hundred.
That was my thought process too with WFH 🙂
There’s also no option to upgrade the monitor 🙁
I can’t tell for sure but is the monitor the white or the black? Curious if I were to go for this deal (I love to dream) whether I’d go for the white or black
I’d want white. Makes it feel like a prop from a cheesy Scifi movie.
So this values the ‘extras pack 1TB of HDD storage as $524.41 (after Cashrewards) in case anyone (like me) was wondering.
Given the above comments citing that you might struggle to get $400 selling on the monitor due to sales to buy this if you personally don’t want all the stuff seems ill informed.
I kinda want the keyboard and mouse to smooth out the whole RGB of the rig and just have one control centre but not worth the extra IMHO.
The White Chassis does not appear to be in stock anymore. Only the black
How upgradable is the RAM on this. Is it easy to get 3rd party RAM modules for this motherboard or are you stuck with Dell RAM modules?
Anything <= 3200Mhz @ XMP should work. 4 slots insides, but the space between slots are smaller than normal ATX motherboard. Thicker RAMs (cooling armor) struggles if you install 4 of them.
XMP profile with > 3400Mhz will fail applying the XMP in DELL’s Bios and stay at ~2400mhz or possibly lower
I’ve got these to use with it https://www.hyperxgaming.com/us/memory/fury-ddr4 hope they work!
Seems it may not… https://www.dell.com/community/Alienware-Desktops/Aurora-R11…
Looks like Dell use some pretty average ram in it.
This is a great deal sadly i got no money
Same here, tax time is coming though…
