    Posted: 29 Oct 2009 at 7:45am
It's been 3 months since I recieved my system from Digital Storm and I couldn't be happier.  I've had to call technical assistance ONE time and the issue was fixed on the phone within 3 minutes.  I didn't get an answering machine, promised to be called back.  I had a COMPETENT technician tweak a few more settings in my overclock and she has been running stable since.
 
I get killer framerates in all my games at 1900X1200 resolutions with everything maxed out.
 
I've recommended DS to all my friends who are hardcore games and even a stock market day trader who wants a reliable, stable system made with quality parts.  I couldn't be more satisfied or happier. 
 
Here are my specs and below are pics of my system.  DS even threw in for free to overclock my system.

Haven't been around but wanted to give another thumbs up to DS.  Had one of my video cards a few months ago begin to act up and customer support was extremely helpful in getting diagnosed properly over the phone, RMA generated and replaced quickly.  Other than that one little hiccup, this system has been rock stable since I received it 18 months ago.  Well done.

I love that heat sink nice set up 
Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

Just another update.  System runs as it did day ONE of delivery.  I'm on this beast every single day and not having any issues is a damn sweet deal.

I've sadly only had an hour or so to play recommended dosage levitra this, but what I was able to play was extremely cool. Can't wait to get some free time and tackle this one. :D
