  1. Digital Storm has taken the covers off its new "affordable" Special Ops gaming PC series, which appears to be comprised of 10 uniquely named base systems ranging in price from $987 to $2,429. By default, the vast majority use Intel Core processors (some are P55-based while others use the X58 platform), but two are available with a quad or hexa-core AMD Phenom II CPU.

    I'd really be curious to know what the market is for these custom-built machines. Obviously, someone is buying them, but I've personally never met anyone who has. These uber gaming rigs fall into the hobbyist category and everyone I know who wants something like this builds their own (and at a significant cost reduction).

    Same, everyone i know, including me builds my own, with a HUGE decrease in money spent compared to one of these.

    Does anyone else think that case looks like HAF 932

  6. digital storm rocks. they might not be the best choice in each case but they test their computers, give you a three year warranty, and can promote some excellent closeout specials. sure i priced a build and would have saved some money but after reading reviews on newegg and other places, the possibility of extreme mental angiush is there(send me a tested computer with a nice warranty is an attractive option). after talking with DS on the phone, i don't think they're going to "cheese" me on a part failure. if they do, i'll be on the forums speaking negatively, instead of with praise. i've put my computer through the extreme test for over a year now with countless installs, re-installs, power outages(florida), gaming and about a million restarts. an i7 for $1100 and two years to go on my warranty. it wasn't a bad option back then and i would buy the same computer today. i'm not against saving money though and it seems extensive research is always in order when it comes to these oh so lovable computer buying choices that need to be made.
     
  7. meant to say buying decisions not choices that need to be made-whatever but along those lines thank goodness for sites like techspot and techpowrup(sry if you don't like those guys haha), thanks for the hard to decipher image verifications.
