Digital Storm's Titan Edition of ''World's Thinnest'' Gaming PC

Digital Storm launched on Tuesday a new desktop PC featuring Nvidia's latest GTX Titan graphics card. Called the Bolt Titan Edition, this PC is also promoted as the thinnest gaming rig in the world, measuring just 3.6-inches wide. But the price won't be quite so "thin" in the wallet, costing gamers a hefty starting price of $2,499 USD.

"The Bolt’s unique ventilation system differentiates it from all other small form factor PCs, making it one of the only systems in its class able to handle the powerful GTX Titan," the company said. "The custom designed chassis features vents near each critical component, large top and rear vents to eliminate any stagnant air inside of the system, and a dedicated air channel created by a slotted side vent to cool the power supply.  The design delivers industry leading thermals and ultra-quiet operation."

Currently the product page lists this rig as "coming soon", but a provided spec sheet shows the Titan Edition to feature an unlocked Intel Core i7-3770K quad-core CPU clocked at 3.50 GHz, mounted on an Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe mini-ITX motherboard. The system is powered by a 500W Digital Storm-certified gold-rated Bolt Edition power supply.

In addition to Nvidia's new GeForce GTX Titan 6 GB card, the gaming rig comes packed with a 120 GB Corsair Neutron GTX SSD, a 1 TB 7200 RPM hard drive and 16 GB of DDR3 1600 MHz memory. There's also a DVD/CD 8x combo drive, a high-performance cooler with five heat pipes, high speed Ethernet and wireless connectivity, and a 64-bit edition of Windows 7 Home Premium.

"The Titan powered Bolt performed exceptionally when running Steam Big Picture, Valve’s popular games distribution platform optimized for big screen TV’s," the company said. "The Bolt’s unmatched balance of explosive power and size, just 3.6-inch wide, make it an ideal console replacement and destined to make the move from the home office or bedroom into the living room."

To customize this blazing hot gaming PC, head here. As previously stated, the site says to check back in a few days, listing this Titan Edition as "coming soon". A brief look shows that customers can customize the case, storage, connectivity, GPU and software options.

    ankit0x1better to build a little thick computer at that price...2 grand...imagine the system

    Seeing as $1000 of this budget goes straight to the GPU and another $500 goes to the CPU and motherboard, you're left with $500 for a case, RAM, power supply, SSD, hard drive, and disk drive. It can be done but you're seriously cutting corners on some parts if you're gonna fit this in a $2000 budget. The $2500 they're charging is actually absurdly reasonable for the specs and form factor.

    They use a PCIe riser card to put the card at a 90 degree angle so it's parallel with the motherboard. The same trick is used in Falcon Northwest's Tiki, Alienware's X51, and iBuyPower's Revolt. Simple little trick that very few (if any) aftermarket cases support, which is why these botique vendors have to do custom cases to house these machines.

    Yes. Also most video cards are 4" tall, so its about just as wide as a video card is, just fyi.
