Over the last two weeks, I have done some research with my PC Shopping part wished list and going over and comparing pc systems from name brand vendors like dell, to those Independent seller you find it Pricewatch.com and google shopping. So far, I Could only find a few Reputable Online vendor that offer Customizable i7 core PC system.

Tonight I came across this vendor AVA Direct http://www.avadirect.com And the impression I got from reading the reviews from ResellerRatings this vendor has a good reputation and their formal Customers game them mostly good to Very Satisfied positive in their reviews. Before I make the Purchase I like get some input if I should go ahead with AVA Direct or try looking at other site to my new system.
