AVADirect wasn’t really a systems builder on our radar until late last year when we reviewed their Avant Mini Cube Gaming PC. After extensive testing, we found that the system was well configured, well built, and well priced, quickly propelling AVADirect to the top as one of our favorite custom PC builders.
Recently, AVADirect sent us another one of the systems in their lineup, the AVADirect X370 Quiet Gaming PC, which as its name implies is AVADirect’s quiet gaming PC offering based on AMD’s X370 Ryzen platform.AVADirect Quiet Gaming PC Specs Desktop AVADirect X370 Quiet Gaming PC Case Phanteks Eclipse [...]

Unfortunately as I started working on the build article late last year, I wasn’t too happy with a lot of components that I had to make compromises in, in order to fit the budget.

Now after posting the build, a number of you requested that I post a $1,000 gaming PC build as well – a system that not [...]
Wow. Until a lot of you guys messaged me over the past couple weeks, I had no idea that the last time we did a $1,00 gaming PC build guide, it was all the way back in December of last year. Guess it was about time to update that old thing!

Now before starting the build, I wanted to put together a solid mainstream system that had all [...]
