That is a very strong system at that price point.

Once you have it and settle in, you might wish to consider shopping for a PCIe M.2 form factor SSD that will be significantly faster than the one that comes in the system. Copy your operating system and apps to the faster one to improve performance every day, and use the DS one for games.

The M.2 form factor drives look a bit like a stick of gum, and plug right into the motherboard, with no wiring needed. You have a PCIe Generation 3 motherboard, so you'll want a PCIe 3 SSD.

Twincky,

Maybe you ought to change your name to "Lucky"!
That is a quick passage through the stages!
I know you will enjoy your new system when it arrives.

I just got my new Beast about a month ago replacing an older 12 year old Digital Storm system that still games pretty good.

the old pc i had i built and since the hurricane that hit us i tried saving it since my home was pretty much gone. So I bought a new motherboard and power supply and when i went to turn it on i got nothing no power so i said screw it ill just buy one and see how it comes out and seeing the reviews from DS i think i made the right choice on this.

Twincky,

On the 12 year old Digital Storm system that I just upgraded from I only had to replace a CPU cooler fan in all those years.

Digital Storm Staff & Technicians as well as the supportive Forum members here are always available to help you optimize your system to your purposes.

Getting a new screaming fast computer is like having another Christmas except Santa doesn't bring it and you have to pay for it. But the smiles and joy are the same!
