Conclusion: Gateway simultaneously brings out a new tower chassis and rings the death knells for the BTX form factor. The mainstream DX430X does things that last year's high-end $4,000 systems did.
Pros: New styling. Very good performance. Lots of inputs and outputs. Powerful graphics card. Wireless networking. Removable hard drive bay.
Cons: "Soft-Touch" mouse is a little stiff (at least it's optical). McAfee security software subscription only 90 days. Internal cables a bit unruly. Portable Media Drive uses non-standard USB ports. No HD DVD or Blu-ray option.
