Summary: This is a high end gaming computer, that I got for a very low price. The low price was due to the fact that it offers virtually no support. This is not a computer for someone who doesn't know how to set things up themselves. This computer is a few years old, but there STILL isn't a much better computer available on the market. The computer industry has pretty much abandon desktops in favor of stupid tablets and mobile devices and laptops.
Summary: I needed a gaming computer and this one was recommended by friends. This product had a great price compared to other places you could buy this project. I am enjoying this product so far! Awesome computer for games and anything else you wanna do! Good shape and condition.
Summary: I have had this pile of junk for over a year now. I will say it's better than the Dell of similar specs that I originally bought - I bought one, it didn't work, turned it in, got another, same issue, got ANOTHER, also had problems, returned it and have sworn off Dell. Got this one, yet another pile of junk. The DVD player doesn't recognize the disk half the time. The USB 3.0 ports are WORSE than 2.0 ports.
Summary: Bought this computer for my wife---it is soooooo much more than what she needs, but after searching online for 3 or 4 days, this model came on sale! I could not believe 1 could get so much computer for $700!!! So I took a chance on it! It booted up with no problems and is fast and quiet! We have it on the ground and don't hear it. No problems at all thus far. Wife just searches the web, plays some very basic online games, as I said, this computer is over-kill for her.
Summary: I bought the FX computer being that I deal with music production. Very fast. Basically can handle what I throw at it straight out the box. I upgraded the ram to 16gb which it does support. I also edit videos as well, using the Adobe CS6 Master Collection. The video card is ok very everyday use, but I added Nvidia Geforce 560 2gb card to be able to keep things running smooth. The biggest addition made recently was a Intel 520 series 240gb SSD....smoking!
Summary: This is the second Gateway computer that I have bought and it will be my last. The first one died after a little over a year, motherboard went bad. This one the sound card did the same. Other than that it works but I would not recommend this to anyone.
Summary: This desktop is a powerful PC without needing to spend the extra couple of thousands of dollars as you would on something that is a bit more advanced. Very good for the most casual/advanced gaming types. Very good for people that want quick program loading speed and quick start-up. Excellent for people that load/use multiple programs at once and multi-task constantly. Conveniently placed USB ports. A lot of good pre-loaded programs. Top of the line processor.
Summary: I've been running an FX6831-01 for almost 2 years now and have no issues with it. When my oldest son decided he wanted an FX, we purchased the FX6860-UR20P, being that it was a step up from mine at a great price. Straight out of the box, he installed Skyrim and started playing. It performs even smoother than my model and Skyrim had no FPS loss.
