Well done DS! ... I specifically enjoyed this paragraph...
 
"It puts our former Editors' Choice, the **removed brand** to shame in gaming tests, and it pulls ahead of the similarly priced **removed brand** (Triple Titan). If pure, unbridled graphics performance is what you're after, the Digital Storm Coridium delivers like no other. It's our Editors' Choice for high-end gaming desktops."

When you go to desktops, click on the Apollo, select a level and when you get to the customization page, click change Chassis next to Chassis Model

If you go to the Apollo custom configurator as one example, you can change the case to the Coridium and then add whatever parts you want, including the same graphics card.

Hope this helps.

Yep, DS does the prebuilds like Vanquish for example, or you can get a fully custom setup in the Config page, like the one I posted.    DS has a boatload of options. 

Custom is DS's thing.  Big%20Smile
