I received my desktop 3 weeks ago now and figured I now know enough to write a semi-educated review. http://www.digitalstormonline.com/forums/smileys/smiley1.gif

Here is my configuration:
Processor: Intel Core i5 3570K 3.40 GHz (Overclocked to 4.22 GHz)
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX (Intel Z77 Chipset)
System Memory: 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Corsair Vengeance Series
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB
Power Supply: 600W Corsair GS
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALX 1TB 7200 RPM Operating System: 1x (1TB Western Digital/Seagate/Hitachi/Samsung (7200 RPM) (32MB Cache)
Optical Drive: DVD-R/RW/CD-R/RW (DVD Writer 24x / CD-Writer 48x)
Extreme Cooling: AIR: Stage 1: Corsair A50 120mm Fan High Performance Cooler

Ratings:

Shipping 10/10: I ordered my PC and got it WAY faster than I imagined I would. Took 5 days to ship! Packaging was excellent will be used when transporting it anywhere now.

Gaming 9/10: Gaming performance is great. I have been playing borderlands mostly in anticipation of the second one. But i have played crysis 1 and 2 as well as the graphics killing metro 2033. In crysis 2 I can play max settings at over 40 fps avg and metro is the only game yet that i need to adjust below max settings in order to play at a "comfortable" framerate (for me average 45+)

Customer service 10/10: I will have an update when there is a problem. I have not needed to use customer service for much more than a few simple config questions. The questions were answered in a way that made sense and where extremely fast. One of my emails resulted in a phone call to me within 3 mins of sending the email. Test it yourself.. its impressive.

Community 10.1/10: that is all that needs to be said. Everyone on here has been very helpful.

Overall quality 10/10: Nothing was wrong with it on arrival, it is FAST! Great processing speeds and great gaming visuals. Everything about this PC is great. One minor start up glitch in week one, but nothing since. The noise level is minimal and has great ventilation. Even with the fan all the way up it is not too bad i have it at about 80% and it seems good. The only thing i would change about this PC is I would make it 12g ram. Its by no means bad but I would have rather payed the extra 50.



I will add more as people have questions. Feel free to ask away

Congrats on your new rig. Cool  Pics look great.
All evil comes from within,
Not from Without,
Therefore, the 1st step on the Holy Warrior path,
Is to recognize thyself as thy 1st enemy.

Congratulations, that's an awesome PC. Have you played any games like call of duty on it?
•I have so many ideas. Some are simple like take down traffic lights and eliminate the post office. The bigger ones will be tougher, like ‘bring all this crumbling to the ground.’

I have not played any Call of Duty (not my thing), however i have played quite a few games on it in the past 5 months so if you have any questions for other games i could let you know, such as far cry 3, guild wars 2, both portals, both crysis games, metro, and a few others.

I was hoping you could provide some details about how your rig runs with guild wars 2. Specifically, the settings you use (in game and resolution on your monitor) as well as the fps you observe in the game and also in WvW specifically. I am considering a similar rig and your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

well for guild wars 2 I run max settings with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and i never seem to dip below 60 in WvE, WvW on the other hand can dip into the range of about 25 at min, but that is only when you are in a huge mob trying to break down a gate with at least 30 people fighting and a lot of chaos. Even with all that going on i never seem to notice it because of all the action. It looks flawless on my PC. I would highly reccomend it.
