Wrecknology Review Debut - AVADirect Custom Gaming PC Sawed in Half

September 30th, 2011

Machinima is an online community called the next generation video entertainment network for gamers. Their new online web series "Wrecknology" debuted with AVADirect's Z68 Custom Gaming System as their main focus. The review showcased the internal, as well as the external, design of the craftsmanship we put into all gaming systems alike. Bruce Green, the host of Wrecknology, mentioned how easy it was to expand the system beyond it's initial configuration and how the Z68 Custom Gaming Computer can be carried around with a nifty top-handle for increased portability. Next, Bruce details how impressed he was with the performance provided considering the price and overall configuration. The machine will handle any and all games with ease for the next 2-3 years. We were extremely impressed with the review, and most excited at the results. Then, the devastatingly unimaginable happened...

"One of the fastest computers we have ever tested, especially for this price range" - Bruce Green
