Digital Storm supplements its custom PC business with four preconfigured gaming PC builds.

The specs in the below configurations all appear promising for the given prices. Each system has an overclocked Core i7 2600K CPU from Intel. The three higher-end models have two graphics cards, and the lower-end $1,499 model has room on the motherboard to add a second one. The $1,999 unit seems to be one of the strongest deals in the assortment, as you get a faster overclock, a second graphics card, a Blu-Ray/DVD burner combo drive, and an 80GB Intel SSD boot drive for only $500 more than $1,499 system.
Digital Storm still offers custom PCs, and it is also not the first boutique vendor to sell preconfigured systems. Since the parts listed above are all available off the shelf, big spending enthusiasts may still look to a vendor like Falcon Northwest, Maingear, or Velocity Micro that offers unique cases. Still, we like the configurations and the prices Digital Storm has to offer. If it can back those specifications with reliability and careful assembly, Digital Storm may bring in more customers, which would be a great way to grow its brand.
