    Posted: 29 Jul 2014 at 6:01pm
I have been mainly a console gamer, but have dabbled in PC gaming from time to time. I built my first gaming PC back in 2003 for the release of StarWars Galaxies. Since then I have always kept a pc to play a few games, but as the online capabilities of consoles grew, I started to play PC games less and less.

The release of the new gaming consoles left me feeling cold, nothing to excite me, so I set out to research for components for my new PC. I found out about DIGITALSTORM by reading a review of the Vanquish II that appeared on Forbes online. The more I looked around, the more it seem like DS was the way to go.

I received my new system yesterday, installed software, attached devices, and then finally loaded some games. I am very impressed, everything is running on at a very high quality just as it was advertised. So far I have played World of Tanks, Diablo 3, and Watchdogs, and the system has handle them with flying colors.

Bottom line, I love the computer, and DS has my business for years to come. I guess the best thing I can say is that I have not felt any buyers remorse, even for a moment.

I will update this post if anything relevant happens down the line.

Welcome to the family! Glad to see you love the Vanquish.

Alex should be moving the thread to the Customer's Review section fairly soon.

You're gonna love it! .. Is that Peter Griffin, or Carl from Jimmy Neutron, holding it down?
 
There are a few threads around here for cleaning the filters on that case.  The front filter is attached to the fascia so you will have to take the whole front off to give it a cleaning... and don't forget the PSU filter underneath.
 
Keep that little bundle of joy clean and she'll reward you with years of 'non-console' gaming.  Welcome to the right side of the gaming world.  Big%20Smile

Here comes the 'derail'... but I beleive that was a Black Sabbath song written by Geezer Butler. .  Ninja    Good lord, that song is now 44 years old, and still relevent today.  The original title was Walpurgis, satanic and the evil behind wars.
 
But, I digress.  Sorry for the /derail.
