Digital Storm ships pre-built ODE gaming PCs
Gaming PC maker Digital Storm has just introduced its first pre-built gaming desktop, the ODE. Available in four versions, the company pre-selected all the components in each, with the flagship offering getting an overclocked, 5.0GHz Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and two 1.2GB NVIDIA GTX 570 graphics cards running in an SLI configuration. It also has a 120GB solid state drive along with a 1TB hard drive and a Blu-ray/DVD combo optical drive.
At the other end of the scale, the base ODE system gets a 4.5GHz Core i7 chip, the same 8GB of RAM but just one 1GB NVIDIA GTX 570. A 1TB hard drive is present as well, along with a DVD writer.
Next up is a 4.7GHz system with dual SLI 1GB NVIDIA GTX 560s. It also adds an 80GB SSD and a Blu-ray/DVD combo. The third version of the ODE PC gets the same chip, dual SLI 1.2GB GTX 570s and a larger 120GB SSD. The power supply also gets a 100W bump to 850W. Other than the clock speed, it differs from the range-topper by way of its ASUS P8P67 mainboard rather than the ASUS Maximus IV Extreme.
All systems have Windows 7 Home Premium preloaded and the same Corsair 600T chassis in white graphite.
Digital Storm's ODE systems ship within 72 hours, with prices ranging from $1,500 to $2,500.
