The Firestorm Thunder and Firestorm Hail both are perfect for avid amateur and professional photographers alike.

Photography enthusiasts can demand a lot from a PC workstation, be it working with large TIFF files, applying effects when touching up photos and creating unique original pieces. Because of this most home PCs struggle to keep up with such a demanding workload – often leaving you waiting for minutes for each action to complete.
