  • Excerpt: You'll pay a decent amount for the Gateway FX540XTG's respectable gaming performance—and get an earful in the bargain.
  • Pros: Good at DirectX 9 gaming, Blu-ray/HD DVD combo optical drive included
  • Cons: Very loud, DirectX 10 performance at higher resolutions is only fair, No HDMI port for high-definition output

Gateway FX540XT Review

1 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Gateway has recently revamped its FX line of gaming desktops – internally at least. Though it looks the same as other older FX machines we’ve seen from Gateway, this one is easily the most powerful Gateway ever assembled, and even includes a factory-overclocked quad-core processor running at a steamy 3.66GHz.
  • Pros: Great gaming performance; overclocked processor; plays HD movies
  • Cons: Fans are too loud; overclocked CPU was not stable; typical Gateway PC despite "gaming" branding
