Gateway 7200XL


Gateway's flagship desktop, the 7200XL is the first system we have seen using Intel's new BTX form factor rather than the well-known ATX form factor. This means that the system should theoretically be quieter and remain cooler than a comparably...

Very powerful; plenty of inputs; extremely quiet; affordable

Average keyboard; comes with a poor mouse

For the price you will be hard pressed to find a system that comes with as many features as the 7200XL.

The Gateway 7200XL's silver and black chassis will spice up any home office. More important, it has a slew of high-end multimedia hardware at a very low price. And although it doesn't quite stack up against much more expensive systems here, it's a good...

Dual-layer DVD?RW drive. Multiformat memory card readers. Good documentation. Easy to add and remove drives. Low price

Little bundled software. Cheap mouse. Unexceptional monitor and speakers

The 7200XL is certainly worth its $2,299 price tag, but it's not quite as impressive as some of the more expensive machines in our roundup, including the $2,999 Dell Dimension 8400.

DJ, one site versus the two I linked to? Common man. Stop drinking the AMD koolaid and get with the picture. These are SYSTEM tests, not processor tests. Memory, etc is all taken into consideration.

For real gaming benchmarks, go to a trusted source that knows what they are doing. There is no way in hell a P4 system will outperform an Athlon FX at 2.4G with 6800 Ultra in any gaming benchmark or 3Dmark 2003 or 2005. This is undisputed.
