"Gaming Supercomputer, fast, smooth, trouble free"

JeffroKill, CNET
24 January 2012
  • Pros: Great processor, i7-920 quad core with 4 virtual cores (behaves as an 8 core) Good graphics card ATI Radeon HD4850 w 512GB discrete memory Good memory 3GB DDR3 Good 750GB HDD multiformat DVD +/- RW Drive with Labelflash 15 in 1 card reader
  • Cons: After about 1 1/2 years, video card failed. No problem, it was time to upgrade anyways. I installed an XFX Radeon HD 5770 with 1GB DDR5 discrete memory.I also added 4GB of Kingston DDR3 memory. Total memory now is 7GB.

"Tough to do better for the money"

  • Pros: Great price for a gaming computer, easily upgraded, has played everything I've thrown at it for the last 2 years at high or max settings at 1920x1080, lots of expansion potential
  • Cons: Some overheating issues (the case is tiny), interior is a bit cramped, and it's completely rediculous for Gateway to package so much bloatware on a system that's obviously meant for gamers who aren't interested in any of it.

"Fast affordable screaming machine"

mjadamci, CNET
15 December 2008
  • Pros: i7 processor, big hard drive, nice looks, easily add harddrives without tools, very quiet, runs cool
  • Cons: air vent on bottom could break as its flimsy, 3 gig RAM is kind of low for a gaming machine, pop up media card/USB slots is useless, should be on front like the rest of the comptuers

"Excellent Performance"

omikeyboy, CNET
14 December 2008
  • Pros: Quad core has yet to break a sweat. Nice design and features for the money. Large hard drive, room for expansion, and handles gaming well. Can barely hear the PC running. One of the best PC's in this price range.
  • Cons: Another gig or two of memory would have been nice OOB, but the system will accept.Gateway as well as other PC manufactures have cut their scope of support. If you call tech support be prepared to reformat to original factory condition.
