The Alienware Steam machine is powered by an Intel Core i5 4570, an NVIDIA GTX 760 GPU, 16GBs of RAM and up to 1TB of storage, using a hybrid hard drive and solid state drive (SSD). This boxy device will sell for $1,339 and be available in mid-2014.
Dell's Alienware will be using Valve's new gaming controller, but other vendors will be using different designs. No matter the controller, you should be able to any of them with any other Steam Machine.
CyberPowerPC: This unit will come with a 3.9GHz AMD A6-6400K processor CPU with an AMD Radeon R9 270 GPU, 8GBs of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. Its pricing will start at $499 and it will ship in the third quarter of 2014. This will be one of the least powerful, but also least expensive, Steam boxes.
