I'm thinking about buying the Alienware Aurora but it says it has a micro atx motherboard. I was wondering if I could still upgrade my graphics card (if it ever needs to be upgraded =) ) because I'm pretty sure somewhere it said it had a 900 watt power supply or something like that but of course i can't find where it says it now. It looks like it has a pretty big case so I think it could fit one in.

Most Micro ATX boards have a dedicated GPU slot and are therefore upgradeable. Being an Alienware I am pretty sure it has a discrete GPU and you should be able to upgrade that easily.

Do you know how many watts it has because i just want to know if I actually saw that because usually micro ATX have a max of 400w

Who said that? You can put any PSU on it.

Regardless, don't you customize your computer with Alienware and just use the "Aurora" as a general base? :heink: 

I don't shop there so I don't know, cheaper to build your own.
