Digital Storm launches 3-screen, 3D gaming PCs
Digital Storm is now offering a number of PCs meant for multi-display 3D using NVIDIA's 3D Vision Surround. Each of the Black|OPS desktops includes three 23-inch 3D-ready monitors with a 1080p resolution from ASUS and one pair of 3D glasses. The base model gets a 2.8GHz AMD Phenom II X6 1055T CPU and two 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 graphics cards in an SLI configuration.
The base version shares its 4GB of RAM with the next in line, which gets a 3.2GHz Core i5 that is unlocked and can be overclocked. Two of the new, 768MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 cards in SLI provide the processing power for games. These two also share a 500GB, 7200RPM hard drive.
The third in line gets Intel's quad-core, 2.8GHz Core i7, ups RAM to 6GB and gets two SLI-connected GeForce GTX 470 cards at 1.2GB each. All three share a 750W power supply.
The top-rung offering uses the same Core i7 chip and 6GB of RAM, but gets two 1.5GB GeForce GTX 480 graphics cards and a more powerful, 1,000W power supply.
NVIDIA software automatically converts over 425 games to stereoscopic 3D without any added software, and setup is also uncomplicated, as the monitors can be connected using standard VGA cables.
Digital Storm's Black|OPS gaming PCs with 3D Vision start at $2,833 and top out at $3,986.
