Ordered my rig on April 15th, and it arrived on May 9th.  Here are some pics (I apologize in advance...photography is obviously not my strong suit):
 
I chose the option of having my rig shipped via a freight courier:
 
 
The box was huge....
 
 
 
 
Right out of the box....
 
 
 
 
 
 
So far I am loving my new rig.  After the hell I went through with Digital Storm, I'm glad I decided to order from AVAdirect.  Nice job guys! Clap

Looks sweet!

I'm impressed with the packing, inside and out. Nice touch.

I too was looking at DS, but the reviews, pricing, and the fact they're here in the Midwest--less shipping distance, I'm going to order my rig through AVA.

Have fun whith your new toy.

Update:  I have had my rig for over a month and I have had no problems whatsoever.  This is the exact opposite of my experience with the rig I ordered from Digital Storm.
 
I'm very pleased that I elected to return my problematic Digital Storm rig and go with AVAdirect.
 
To Misha and all the folks at AVA, thanks for providing me with a rock solid, stable rig.  Nice job!!  ClapClapClap

    Pretty sweet CTT3, like yourself I had a nightmare with a previous vendor, in my case Cyberpower was the culprit.  I was actually deciding between DS and AVA, I think we made the right choice eh?
