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.
Conclusion: The $1,100 gaming PC is a sweet spot for the gamer who doesn't want to spend $5,000 or even $2,000 on a hard-core gaming rig. The Gateway FX7020 is the first system we've seen with a quad-core AMD Phenom processor.
Pros: Gaming-class graphics. TV tuner. Quad-core AMD processor. 3GB of memory. Copy button on card reader. Built-in IR receiver. Spare Backup online and local backup service.
