[EG] Digital Storm Goes After DIY Gaming PCs With Its $699 Vanquish. - Page 5

post #41 of 108
It would be cheaper for me to change my oil in my truck, but I don't. I pay someone else to do it. It's not worth my time on the weekends. I'm paying someone with a high school education $100/hr to deal with it so I don't have to.

Many people feel the same way about a PC. They simply don't care enough to take the time to research component compatability, how to put everything together, and actual assembly. People have different hobbies. No need to chastise Digital Storm for providing a service and trying to make a buck in it.

They can save a ton of time by using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit for their OS installation rather than doing everything manually. They must not sell a lot if their video is any indication of what they really do.

I don't understand why everyone is being so hostile. These Digital Storm computer seem like a great option for people that know what hardware they want, that maybe aren't confident on purchasing all the correct parts, or assembling.

No one is trying to take your hobby away. Its a great deal, better people buy from these guys than from Dell/HP ect.

Guys, DS is targeting not the DIYs like us, but the kind of people between a DIY and an idiot who uses an i7 3770K with a stock heatsink, mobo that doesn't support overclocking, no GPU, and a Leadman PSU.

In short, it's mean for people who are somewhat knowledgeable about PCs, but lack the interest in learning more.


However, some of their setups are... Questionable. Years ago, I recall seeing an advertisement of a gaming rig with an i7 990X, some mid-range GPU, and 16 or 32GB of RAM, at around $2000.

Lol this is pretty funny. I feel bad for anyone actually. Considering buying one of these especially from the people that somehow got a cable stuck in a disk drive that's pretty much physically impossible

I think it's much more likely that a newb installed a Leadman PSU thinking that it's good enough, or have very unbalanced build.

If anyone I know ever considered paying $700 for a build powered by a 4300 and a 7750, I'd slap some sense into them.

Must've been a hassle to find out why their system was smokin when they forgot to use the mobo standoffs!


Seriously though, from ripping open the new egg boxes, to booting up my PC for the first time, even with me taking my sweet ass time with the cabling, I think it didn't take me any more than 30 minutes to get my system running. Didn't even have to install windows because I went from a biostar/amd setup, to a better biostar/amd setup, so my computer didn't actually think anything changed!\


and a 7750? really? the ONLY reason why I bought a 7750 is because my gf's pc is a HP slim pc, and the 7750 is the most powerful low profile graphics card you can get. It's decent, for what it is.

but serious gaming it does not do.
