My 12 year old son is asking for a pc for Christmas. It will primarily be used for gaming. I have no idea what I should be looking for. I would like to stay within $1500-1600. Graphics is a big thing for him and most definitely the colorful lighting. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

Hi, sorry not to reply, but the place you would get more attention is the "Configuration Discussion" toward the top of the Forums.

This is the computer you want. It's called a Lynx Ultimate. It is customized By Digital Storm as a pre-built deal from parts they have assembled so they can sell a powerful package at a bargain price. It hits the important qualities you listed as to colorful lighting and powerful graphics at $1499.

Digital Storm Desktop - Config ID 3465586 - SKU 2938354

To see this in their "Configurator" in pictures, choose Desktops > Lynx > Best Sellers > Ultimate. This is the one with the strongest features. Only slightly less powerful is the "Best" model at $1299. The others do not have very strong graphics. In contrast, you will see a Custom configuration starts at quite a higher price.

Feel free to ask questions. I'm just a customer like you, but I have a little knowledge and experience, and I like to help. I've had 3 DS computers, and I believe in the products and quality
