As its name implies, the Bolt II Battlebox Titan Z is stuffed with an Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z dual-GPU graphics card. Simply put, it’s one of the most powerful graphics cards on the market today. However, it’s not the most powerful one out there. That crown goes to AMD’s Radeon R9 295X2, which also costs half ($1,500) of what the Titan Z ($3,000) goes for. So, keep that in mind.
Aside from the Titan Z, the Bolt II Battlebox Titan Z also ships with an overclocked Intel Core i7-4970K CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 250GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD paired with a 1TB mechanical hard drive by default. Of course, you can swap out any of these components if you prefer to cut corners in some or all of these areas. In fact, if we were to get one of these, we’d go for 8GB of RAM instead, which slices about $100 off the $4,997 as-configured price. 8GB is more than enough to handle almost any task you throw at this machine. 16GB is overkill.

Powering all of this is a 700-watt power supply, while the CPU gets sweat wiped off its brow courtesy of a liquid cooling system. You can opt for one of a few paint jobs, including red, blue, white, and black. There’s also Copperhead, but Digital Storm’s site says that it is currently back-ordered.
