    Posted: 07 Nov 2013 at 10:31pm
So a little under 2 weeks ago I decided to purchase a new Digital Storm Gaming PC. I went for the Vanquish Level 4 because of the great price as well as DS's fantastic reputation.

My system arrived 3 days ago, but I just got the time to set it up yesterday, and now today I am writing my review as well as sharing some pics.

Here is the package that came in the mail carrying my new rig!





Here is my box full of extras (Binder with CDs, paperwork, warranty, game codes, manuals, t-shirt, etc)





Here is the system out of the box!







Pictures with the side panel removed





Here is the GTX 770. I'm not very familiar with which manufacturers are the best for GPU's but I got the Asus. Love the look!



Corsair Liquid Cooling on the Asus Motherboard!



Hooking up the system! I couldn't get the red LED lights to work, but a friendly member helped me find the switch. I don't know how I could have missed it!



I picked up a Corsair K70 keyboard and a Corsair M65 mouse for my new system! As it turns out, other than my CPU and HDD, just about every component of my system is either Corsair or Asus. Two great quality brands!



Here it is all set up with beautiful red glowing lights!











My Beautiful System is as follows:

Corsair Case
Intel Core i5 4670K 3.4ghz OC'd to 4.2ghz
Corsair Liquid CPU Cooler
Asus Geforce 770GTX
Asus Z87-C Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance 8gb RAM
Corsair 120gb SSD
Seagate 1tb HDD
Asus DVD Drive
Corsair 600W PSU
Asus Wireless Adapter
Corsair K70 Keyboard
Corsair M65 Mouse
Asus VX279 27" monitor

I am in love with this system. The quality is top notch. The interior and wiring is clean and beautiful. It games like a beast. I've already used this system to play Batman Arkham Origins, Counter-Strike, Star Wars the Old Republic, and a couple more and they all play great on max settings on my 27" monitor.

The PC arrived very quickly. Went through testing, and got here just a few days after it had shipped. Being able to see the progress and be updated on the process was great as well. Thanks to the forum members for helping to keep me sane during the wait!

I chose DS because of their amazing price and dedication to making sure everything works perfectly before it gets shipped out. They were right on the mark and I love everything about my new system. Next time I need a gaming rig, I will choose DS again without a doubt.

Thanks Digital Storm!

Thanks Everyone! Been gaming all night playing Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The game was always having trouble keeping up on my old system (which was a fairly high end gaming system when I got it almost 5 years ago), and now I max it on highest settings and the DS system doesn't blink. The game is so smooth and looks fantastic on my 27" monitor.

I haven't really touched PC gaming in around 3 or so years and it feels great to get back into it with a fresh new system where everything runs without a hitch and looks beautiful!
