Digital Storm Unveils the VANQUISH II Gaming PC

Digital Storm is excited to unveil the new VANQUISH II, a gaming PC built to play the most demanding games with maximum detail, speed, and power without breaking the bank.

"Starting at just $699, VANQUISH II delivers an incredible value with the ability to play the most graphic intensive games at max settings," said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm's Director of Product Development. "That is still obviously more expensive than purchasing a console, but we believe delivering graphics up to three times the resolution is well worth the extra $100-200 investment."

From a "Good" configuration with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 1 GB graphics card and Intel Core i3 4330 processor to an "Ultimate" build with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2 GB graphics card and Intel Core i5 4570 processor, VANQUISH II is armed to deliver a truly immersive gaming experience.

VANQUISH II's fully upgradeable, open architecture helps gamers stay ahead of the competition with easy upgrades that keep the system on the cutting edge for years to come.

"PC gamers demand the best and that means utilizing the latest components and technologies to deliver the most immersive gaming experience possible. Conversely, consoles quickly become outdated due to a limited architecture and the inability to upgrade performance," said Kuruppu.

There's no waiting or delays like a traditional build-to-order system, all VANQUISH II units ship within 72 hours from the moment an order is placed. During those 72 hours each VANQUISH II system undergoes rigorous stress testing and benchmarking. Afterwards, each desktop goes a multi-point QA inspection where every aspect of the system is scrutinized, from part fitment to software setup, to make sure each unit is perfect.

VANQUISH II is available exclusively at http://www.digitalstormonline.com/vanquish-ii.asp.

The internal blue lightning can be turned off via a switch on the rear panel. The front fans, however, can not be turned off (unless you unplug them from the motherboard).

If the "Good" configuration is starting at just $699, and only sporting a GTX 750 1Gb and i3 4330, the only thing good are Digital Storms' margins. The ability to play the "most graphic intensive games at max settings," but at what resolution... 1280 x 1024?

Check the benchmarks I just posted, all done at 1080p. The GTX 750 is more than enough to enjoy games like Bioshock Infinte at 1080p on ultra/high.

..."enjoy a game(s) like Bioshock Infinite at 1080p on ultra/high."

Glad you signed up and posted that, didn't find that graph on your website. While those... if we saw the "minimums" it would place such Fps in a different light. Going with an extra $40 extra for the GTX750Ti would be the minimum starting point for 1080p. Bioshock is now a one year old game that does well, but look a W1zzards Asus GTX 750 OC 1Gb review, "which clearly does not put the GTX 750 into a position to run 1080p games unless you want to cripple details settings". And that's working from the best enthusiast equipment... i7 OC system etc.

I'm just saying the claim for that "Good" system, "most graphic intensive games at max settings" is a little broad. Words like "most and max" are far-reaching for that build. Lastly, after plugging the parts and pricing, I'll concede the $699 not the worst for the Good. However the alluring value for $40 more and get the 750Ti and another 500Gb is better.

Majority of people opt for the 750 Ti rig but the GTX 750 rig is there for people who just play League of Legends or other less demanding games and then enjoy games like Bioshock, etc on the side.

The GTX 750 rig will allow you to game on higher settings than on consoles.
