WOW... just WOW.  I am currently on the new DS Rig and I can't believe I actually bought this thing!  So far so good, I have some components I will need to put in but so far this is the most insane computer I have ever owned or even used for that part.  I obviously haven't used it much yet so I will save more info for the review in a month or 2.  What I can tell you is that even after hearing about the packaging and service from DS I am still extremely impressed! 

One thing I can note for now is that I am extremely happy I went with the SSD!  The computer booted up before I even walked around from behind my desk!  Not to mention it is much more quiet than I had expected.

Here are the specs on my Rig...

And now for the pictures...  I took tons of pictures unpacking because there seems to be lots of shipping questions going on now.  I can now say that there is absolutely no reason to question the packaging from DS.  I will just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Sound card is installed... I am going to have to pick up a Sata cable tomorrow so I can hook up my Blu Ray Burner. 

Crysis Max, Left 4 Dead and Just Cause 2 are all installed.  I just need to get the Orange Box and Oblivion installed.  And then I will really begin enjoying this thing.  I put L4D on for a few minutes.  I am extremely pleased with the graphics.  And this is certainly a warm welcome back into the world of PC Gaming for me.  I am 100% certain I made the right choice!

No extra SATA cables in the "left over extras" white box?

Not unless I overlooked it twice.  It's not a big deal though.  Where can I go to pick that cable up?  CaompUSA is 45 minutes from my house and I really don't want to go that far.

Walmart, BestBuy, or Office Depot nearby?

Yeah... the building still says CompUSA, but I think Tiger Direct owns them.

After 2 weeks of having my computer I can officially say that it continues to impress me.  I'm glad I went with DS because I don't think I could have put together a machine like this on my own.  I put a light OC on the GPU and it is running under 77* C no problem under full load.
