    Posted: 02 Oct 2008 at 10:37pm
After going to several sites and reading thousands of posts. I have decided to save up and make a purchase at Digital Storm.

Almost all of the negative posts I have read have been addressed by staff members of DS.

I'm just not willing to take a chance with anyone else right now. Money is to hard to come by these days.

So once I finish saving up, I will by a system from DS.

Thanks

P.S. I'll keep you all posted.

Thank you. I for one can't wait until I have enough for a really good system. I don't want to skimp on this one. After purchase, I don't plan on buying another system for a while.

Thanks

P.S. In my first post I should've said "buy"

My original config started around 1300 bucks...it ended up a few months later when i ordered at 2700 bucks....and within 2 months the GPU(s) and ram were "upgraded" at a cost of around 1100 bucks. Ive since added a sound card and a hard drive myself at a cost of around 350 bucks.

*Sigh*, Sunfighter, I think I'm gonna have to go your route and have DSO ship me another GTX280 card soon. Otherwise, I'll feel like I've wasted the potential of the 1000W PSU I got for my system :)

I got a really nice APC UPS, and it has a readout that tells you how many watts you're drawing out of it. With my speakers, moniter, and computer, i'm pulling at most 350W... lots of power for added stuff later on down the road. Oh, damn you DSO..

That's terrific news. The $1900 system is what I'm shooting for, the parts are better even though the price is the same.

Thanks
