At Gamescom 2019, Alienware and Dell announced new PC gaming hardware and accessories. Alienware and Dell hope to attract noob and veteran players alike with these new and redesigned PC gaming ecosystem offerings. As noted in a post on the Windows Blog, these gaming PCs and peripherals will be available in August and September 2019.
The Alienware Aurora brings a fresh “Legend Industrial design,” previously announced at CES 2019, as a desktop gaming PC.

Alienware provides gamers with a wide range of gaming peripherals to complement the Aurora, including the new Alienware Low-Profile RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (AW510K) and Alienware RGB Gaming Mouse (AW510M). 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.
Of course, no gaming setup would be complete without a display to play all those games on.
