Digital Storm has bumped up its top-of-the-line gaming desktop PC to include the just-released Nvidia GTX 590. The absolute top-of-the-line PC is hilariously overpowered, with two GTX 590s in SLI that effectively deliver the power of four GPUs in one PC. Madness!
I’m sure there’s more than a few of you out there who’ll ask “what do you need that kind of power for?” I mean, Crysis 2 flies on my (now) lowly Radeon 5970; I can’t even imagine having two of those beasts churning away inside my case. One reason would have to be bragging rights—check out these 3DMark Vantage numbers! There’s a certain satisfaction in knowing you have the best GPU (this GTX 590 or the Radeon 6990 in this case) out there, even if you know you’ll be playing Crysis 2 or Metro 2033 at 200 frames per second.
Other specs in the absolute top-of-the-line machine: Intel Core i7 970, 12GB DDR3 memory @ 1600MHz, 160GB Intel SSD, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
That will set you back a cool $4,883.
Again, hardware enthusiasm isn’t for everyone, but it’s certainly fun if you can swing it.
