Hey DS community, new user here - figured it was high time to finally get a gaming rig, and after some searching, I've decided to go with Digital Storm. So I'm looking for any feedback, tips, and/or suggestions on this build. Additionally, I'm looking for suggestions for a desk/workstation for this machine if anyone has any.

Thanks for your time!
