I think I got it right this time. Hahaha LOL
 
Here are pics of my new gaming rig I got about 2 months ago. I didn't want to post this to soon because I wanted to run it myself and see what it can do. So here you go.
 
Front view. Duh! lol

Now for my review:
THIS SYSTEM ROCKS! OMG! It may be a bit pricey but man am I impressed!
The ordering on the site was really simple. Just go step by step and you're done in a few minutes. SO many choices.
Constant contact via email from Digital Storm was refreshing to see. With every step of the building and testing process I received an email. No one else does it as well and I order a lot online.
When there was a small issue with my order, I actually got a phone call! This only shows me that you guys care enough to make sure you get it right.
Now for the shipping..... OMG I was dying! ugh! Since you're on the west coast and me on the east coast, you shipped it via ground which for me was months! I was thinking to myself, they don't have a big enough plane? lol
Packaging was weird but very secure! I can only imagine what it went through on the 3500 mile trip and it got here just fine.
I didn't want to upgrade from XP but what was I thinking! Windows 7 makes things so much easier to use! hooked up everything with ease!
Any application I click on opens in a split second.
All my games run so smooth no matter how much I have running in the background! <-- Well almost. Will post issue.
It runs very quiet even though I have 6-120mm fans going. And the blue looks so cool. ^.^
I have dual monitors and they are both crystal clear!
Now for the one downside:
The wires for the dual fans on the side panel are WAY to short to reach the motherboard properly. They just make it. It's a struggle to put the cover back on if I need to remove it. Is there a fix for this?
I want to thank the entire staff of Digital Storm for building me a great system that I hope to enjoy for years to come!
