Are you looking for suggestions on a prebuilt PC or suggestions on the Alienware R11? It's also good practice to state the specs to your build so we can make a comparison of what you're buying into as opposed to what you already(currently)have.

Ok so in defence of the company these are my own personal comments.
3 years ago i nearly bought one , i looked at the user forum and these are the comments i read.
Fans noisy , constantly over heating , lockup and crashes that online support could not fix.
I talked about this in our company canteen and a guy said he had one any he used headphones all time so he could not here fans.

To be fair to the company things may have improved but before you get one , register and read comments on dells own site , they may be different now !

@rayg1022 I do it by uploading the pic to Imgur first then copying the BB code from the picture there to the post.. I'm a caveman so I haven't really used my phone for that kind of thing, but I imagine it must be possible through an app.

dual 2080's.... Nvida have dropped this, so i personally would try for either a single to a newer 30xx card
2080Ti's, no less! But its a good point that nothing really supports SLI anymore.

@rayg1022 A single 2080Ti is about the same as a 3070 according to most reviews I've seen except it has more VRAM.

Dual cards don't really provide any benefit these days in games, though. Its more for bragging rights. If you were confidant in taking one out, you could always sell one of them, not lose any performance and gain better temperatures. Or you can leave it there. That system is an absolute beast.

What do you see as far as years wise will it last for quite sometime?

Will it last a while?
Yes

How long will it last?
It all depends on the games you want to tax the system with and the sort of coding the game devs employ on said games. SLI is no longer a thing anymore unless you do productivity work. The other thing is the sort of in-game details and resolution you want to push across your display, since that will affect how long your top-of-the-line system will last.

As well as what Lutfij says, I'll just say that no one can know the future. But the specs of that system are almost as good as it gets as things stand today.
Yeah I just got this system after having my other one for 10 years probably my last at buying new computers I can always upgrade this one in the future

Be honest: Did you really 'just get' a liquid-cooled, dual-2080Ti PC and not realise what a monster gaming system it was, or is this a bit of a humblebrag?
