The Digital Storm Bolt II is a midsize system that fits some powerful components into a very sleek, sophisticated case – one that looks as good standing upright as it does on its side, which is an important feature for a computer that might end up on your home theater setup. At $3,481 (as tested), the Bolt II’s price tag might raise some eyebrows, but the price strikes us as unsurprising for this rig, which is a luxury PC, after all. Given the prices we’ve seen in luxury gaming PCs of late, the Bolt II certainly commands a premium, but it's not out of line with expectations, especially considering the Devil's Canyon CPU, Liquid Cooling, and GeForce GTX 780 Ti inside...

I question the 780ti, it seems like this is a rather small case and so wouldn't a more power efficient gpu work better (gtx 980 or 970)?
If you go to the site, none of them have 780Ti's anymore, starts with a 760, then a 970, 980 and the big boy has a Titan Z, which I still consider questionable in this day and age.
Maxwell is definitely the better fit--Hence the quick switch in the configurator. We've had the machine in house for a few weeks for testing, etc.
Considering you can get a Syber VenomX (a console style living room pc) starting at $1,500 (i7-4790k, 8GB, GTX 980, 1TB HDD) and equiped the same (i74790k, 16GB, GTX 980, 500GB SSD, 2TB HDD) for under $2,000 I'm a little disappointed.
If you want to go really small a Revolt (i74790k, 16GB, GTX 980, 500GB SSD, 2TB HDD) is also under $2,000.
There is nothing about this rig that makes it worth $1,500 more than systems using the same components, especially then they are smaller.
