AVADirect X99 Gaming System Desktop Review

A custom case doesn't come free, though, which is why many gaming PCs have an eye-watering price. AVADirect takes a different approach, building systems to order from off-the-shelf parts. They’re like a friend who builds computers charging you to put one together, and delivering it to you when they’re done. An incredibly talented friend, with access to the sweetest components.
