The upgrade from the AMD Radeon RX 5300 to the fastest card in the galaxy (which comes with 24GB GDDR6X) costs a whopping $1,593. In other words, the card itself costs more than the entire PC, accounting for a whopping 55% of the total cost.
This workstation is powered by a hexa-core AMD Ryzen 5 3500 processor with 16GB memory (in dual channel) and features a 128GB PCIe SSD (with 1TB storage), 1KW Dark Side of the Moon chassis and an onsite hardware warranty.
Note, there is actually an even cheaper option at $2724.39. The Alienware Aurora R11 (opens in new tab) packs a faster 10th generation 8-core Intel Core i7 and a 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD, but has a ridiculously low 8GB of memory.
Still, it is a better option than the R10 if you plan to add more memory. It ends up costing about $25 more than its AMD alternative, but provides a more balanced system.
