I am a 62-year-old gamer and have played CS since its inception when some of you may not have been born. - The days when we only knew dial up and the highlight of the year was to go to a lan meeting for a tourney.
I have gone through Alienware, Self-Build, and numerous other suppliers of so called gaming PCs
Got to admit that I was sceptical about buying my rig in the USA and having shipped to the UK.
Well I must admit it was perfect when it arrived and so easy to set up and as far as gaming is concerned. I use for business as well and just having my game up and running with my headphones and my office 365 on the side is sweet.
If you have any doubts about buying one don’t as the service is excellent and the product just the best.
Cannot wait until their next iteration of a gaming all in one so I can give this to my wife or fellow gamer keep up with the best and ass kicking Digital Storm product.
If you in the UK and see a new all in one from Digital Storm, let me know as my rig is so fully stocked   it will run for the next 3 years at the forefront in technology.

Hey, can you tell us more? How loud is it while gaming? What about the heat on your desk?

I ask again, and honestly, do you even notice the fan while playing a game? Finally, how often does it come on or does it stay on all the time?

The fan is on all the time and is a low sound, in my work and play I do not notice it.
Of course, if you want an all in one you will get some fan noise but it does not bother me and not in the game.

Can you tell us about the display?  How does it perform in games? Smooth?   Good picture, etc...???

Dependant on the game and whether you need a better FPS………………………… CS:GO excellent and no issues but I do change the Video settings.
All other games I play also have no issue some I change the resolution.

I can do my work and play CS on the same screen with no real affect.

I'm seriously considering purchasing the Aura soon.  Just can't make up my mind though.  Crazy

I don't play many first person shooter games anymore except maybe ARMA or The Division. But those are much slower and not competitive multiplayer.  Mainly things like Civ, Total War games, RPGs etc... 

I really want an ultra wide 3440 x 1440 monitor and the Aura just seems a good fit for what I play and need.  I also like the form factor for where it will go in my house.

Bah, I can't decide.

I would really like an AIO gaming setting up like this, but... and I know this is a small thing, I just wish the display supported higher than 60Hz. Give me a 120hz or 144hz matched with a GTX 1080 (Or 1080 Ti) and I'd be in heaven for a simple guest pc set up. Minimal space, great looks, nice specs... ugh. Such a nice looking system.
