Gateway FX7020 and FHD2400 Review

25 March 2008
  • Conclusion: In case Vista Home Premium isn't ponderous enough for you, Gateway preloads the FX7020 with a banquet of retail-PC bloatware such as Napster; BigFix, a kiddies' version of Windows Update for driver upgrades and friendly vendor messages; and the icky WildTangent pay-for-play lame-game service.

Gateway FX7020

18 February 2008
  • Summary: Gateway's FX7020 matches an AMD quad-core CPU and a fast Nvidia graphics card to make a compelling gaming PC, with some basic multimedia features to boot. Upgraders looking for a deal might wish Gateway had added a beefier power supply, but as is, this is a fine PC for its price.
  • Pros: Capable gaming performance in most current PC titles; TV tuner provides some multimedia oomph.
  • Cons: 400-watt power supply might limit your 3D card upgrade path down the road.

Expert Review

5 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Gateway's FX7020 mainstream gaming box delivers enough of the goods to keep the whole family happy. It won't set any 3D game records—nor will it push you into foreclosure.
  • Pros: Respectable gaming performance
  • Cons: Won't drive the most demanding DX10 titles

Gateway FX7020 Review

24 January 2008
  • Conclusion: The FX7020 is certainly a better-than-average computer, and its pricing is extremely competitive. This is essentially the same pattern we saw with the FX notebook , which was also very powerful and aggressively priced. Our only major gripe with the FX7020 is that although Gateway took the time to make this system look like a gaming machine on the outside, it took no effort whatsoever to differentiate it from any other Gateway in terms of the software installation.
  • Pros: Quiet; solid performance for the price; affordable
  • Cons: Not as flashy as other gaming systems; airflow issues; boring keyboard and mouse
