Upgrade your gaming PC gear on with the i7 Enthusiast-2 desktop computer from Digital Storm. Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn check out its over-clocked Intel Quad Core processor, 2 NVIDIA GTX 275 video cards, 8 gigs of DDR3 RAM and more starting at $1,550.

What You Need To Know

  • This isn't the biggest gaming rig we've seen but it's pretty large.
  • The case is fairly deep but mostly because of the top loading set-up for the peripherals.
  • This is the first time we've seen this layout: you plug everything into the top, then string it out through the back, making it easier to unplug and swap out different external devices.
  • The touchscreen on the front monitors the temperature of the system and allows you to control fan speed without having to open up the system.
  • Opening up the custom built rig was easy: pop off the top cover, and then unscrew the side panel to get in.
  • Inside has 2 video cards and 6 fans, but plenty of room to get around.
  • The cables are neatly grouped to reduce clutter.
  • This PC was a little more expensive than the last Digital Storm rig we built.
  • It tallied up with a 3DMark Vantage score of around 25,400 which is double the score of the other computer.
  • We ran Left 4 Dead 2 and with the settings on high (even though it's not the most graphic intensive game), it still ran smoothly.
  • It's not the fastest PC we've had but it's up there and the performance was impressive.

Price

  • This system came to $2,300 but they start at $1,550 which includes the over-clocked i7 processor.
  • The purchase also comes with a 3 year parts and labor warranty, plus lifetime tech support.

    Why were they laughing so hard? Is it some Californian thing that as a New Yorker I'm never going to understand?
