    Any particular reason you didnt/arnt going to build it yourself?

    • SynCaine says:

      Too much hassle/time vs saving for me. At this amount time>money.

    • Raelyf says:

      Anyone have any idea how much money you’d actually save building this yourself?

      • Shaon94 says:

        With Digital Storm, depending on sales and such, you can save usually about 4-600 dollars by building yourself. Considering possible DOA parts the overclocking they do and the 48 hour stress test before shipping? Unless you just can not afford the extra money I would buy from Digital Storm every time. (Or if you just really love the process of building a computer)

    Fair enough.

    Isn’t the i5 cpu getting pretty long in the tooth? It wasn’t the latest greatest when I built my current computer a few years back, I would think there would be a couple generations since then that wouldn’t be much more expensive.

    • SynCaine says:

      I haven’t kept up with CPUs, but I believe that is the newest i5, which will ship clocked around 4.4ghz.

      • MaximGtB says:

        Indeed, the i5 4690K is the “latest and greatest” desktop i5. Spending ~$100 more for an i7 4790K is rarely recommendable for gaming. 2 MB of cache and HyperThreading don’t make such a big difference.

    I know everyone is anti-Windows 8, but it really is rock solid performance for gaming. You just have to ignore all the wacky UI silliness and go to Desktop asap.

    Kinda jealous. Looks good to this guy playing what he can on his wife’s 2.5 yo macbook pro.
