Digital Storm Ends the Pre-Built vs. DIY PC Debate

/ 3 years ago


Digital Storm put an end to the age old debate of pre-built systems vs. DIY (do-it-yourself) with the launch of the VANQUISH line of gaming PCs. For years, enthusiasts have claimed they could build systems with the same high-end components Digital Storm configures for significantly less. The VANQUISH line narrows that gap to a mere $23-$58 difference making the decision a no brainer – DIY is simply not worth the hassle.

Like all Digital Storm systems, the VANQUISH line of PCs feature a carefully optimized selection of brand name, high-performance components to deliver a fluid smooth game playing experience. Digital Storm’s team of engineers meticulously review every tiny detail to provide customers with the peace of mind an average “do-it-your-self” cannot match.

Digital Storm VANQUISH systems are pre-built, pre-tested, and ready to ship immediately after an order is placed, eliminating the delays of traditional built-to-order systems. By building an inventory of all four VANQUISH models, Digital Storm can run its industry leading 72-hour stress test and benchmarking to ensure customers experience zero performance bottlenecks and get the most out of their hardware.

“When we decided to take on the DIYers we knew we had to offer impressively built systems that could compete in terms of performance as well as price,” said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s Director of Product Development. “For just $23-$58 more were giving customers a fully optimized system featuring the latest chipset platform and next gen-graphics. This allows them to focus on demolishing the competition instead of worrying about the reliability of their PC.”

It’s certainly an interesting market plan and one I expect is going to prove popular too, would you still build your own system or do you think its worth paying that little bit extra to have someone put it together for you, not only to save time but also for peace of mind?

    Where i live, it is actully cheaper to let one of the gaming rig companies put together and build your PC, than if you do it yourself. Ofcourse not all of them let you choose completly freely what hardware you want in it, but as an example i checked what it would cost me just to buy the parts that one of the companies use in their rigs and already then their price was cheaper. Then you get the 2 year warrenty as well. I actully asked how they could build them so much cheaper and they said that their hardware prices were much better than what i could get since they order 100-200 items at a time. Some of the companies are even so nice that they let you bring them certain pieces of hardware and they will put it into the build, they just reduce the rig price by their buying price for said hardware you replaced…

  • I say it would make sense for people to buy pre-built specialist (read gaming) systems but that’s only because I build them and earn a living from it. If they just want a regular 9 to 5 office pc’s, they’re best advised to buy from a reputable franchise.
