What machines does Greyscalegorilla use?
The team at GSG are primarily all using PC workstations now, and most of them custom machines purchased through AVA Direct. The decision to purchase was based on the fact that warranties would assure us of any unseen issues, and we’d have customer support when needed. Of the companies we looked at, AVA Direct was the right fit.
Note: We are not sponsored by AVA Direct and the decision to order through them was our own. That said, AVA Direct is offering the Greyscalegorilla community 5% off orders of our workstations. You can learn more about our PC’s here.
