Boutique system builder Digital Storm doesn't believe the mid-tower form factor is getting its due as a viable option for high-end gaming. In order to change that perception, the company announced a new line of PCs called Virtue with the tagline, "A higher standard in PC gaming." The mid-tower case Digital Storm is using for these new PCs sports a brushed aluminum finish and steel exterior.

"We noticed there are not many pc manufacturers designing mid-tower gaming systems with the same ardor and attention that ultra-tower PCs receive," said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s Director of Product Development. "As its name suggests, Virtue represents a higher standard of PC gaming, both in terms of aesthetics and performance."

Baseline configurations are broken up into four "Levels," as Digital Storm likes to do. A Level 1 system starts at $1,448 and includes an Intel Core i5 4570 processor, 8GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 graphics card, 120GB Corsair Neutron GTX solid state drive, 1TB hard drive, Asus Z87M-PLUS motherboard, Corsair H60 liquid CPU cooler, DVD burner, 600W Corsair power supply, and Windows 8 64-bit. Digital Storm will also overclock the CPU to anywhere from 4GHz to 4.4GHz.

On the top shelf is the Level 4 configuration starting at $3,218. This one is equipped with an Intel Core i7 4770K processor, 16GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, GeForce GTX Titan graphics card, 256GB SSD 1TB hard drive, Asus Gryphon Z87 motherboard, Corsair H100i liquid CPU cooler, Blu-ray drive, 1050W Corsair Pro Silver PSu, and Windows 8 64-bit.

The Virtue line is available to configure and order now .
