Review: Gateway's DX4870-UB2C is an affordable workhorse desktop

 

Gateway's DX4870-UB2C is an old-school midtower desktop that delivers good productivity performance and copious storage for a very reasonable price.

Affordable price tag ; Respectable benchmark performance ; Expansion opportunities

Relies on integrated graphics ; Poor gaming performance ; Mediocre (and nonwireless) PS/2 mouse and keyboard

The Gateway DX4870-UB2C is an old-school midtower desktop that delivers respectable productivity performance and lots of storage for an appealing price.

Gateway DX4870-UB2B

 

The Gateway DX4870-UB2B gives its users what they expect: the latest technology and decent power in an inexpensive desktop PC. It's what we currently recommend for general purpose computing.

Good performance in class. Internal expansion room. 6GB memory, 1TB hard drive. Dual band 802.1 a/b/g/n networking. HDMI

Smallish PSU. Not tool-less for upgrades. Bloatware. Front USB ports are USB 2.0

The Gateway DX4870-UB2B ($499.99 list) is a basic tower desktop PC that checks all the boxes on what you need from a new desktop, particularly if you already have a LCD display that you're carrying over. It's speedy for its segment, has capacious...

Gateway DX4870-UB17

 

With solid components, class-leading performance, and room to grow, the Gateway DX4870-UB17 is an excellent desktop on a budget.

Good performance in class. Internal expansion room. 6GB memory, 1TB hard drive. Dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n networking. HDMI

Front USB ports are USB 2.0. Low power PSU limits expansion. Bloatware

The Gateway DX4870-UB17 ($499.99) is the latest budget desktop we've seen from the company with the cow print on its logo. It's a fine replacement for the six-year-old PC you're thinking about replacing, particularly if you have no need for a...

Gateway DX4870-UR11P

 

While it could have benefited from a stronger GPU, the Gateway DX4870-UR11P breezes past its mainstream consumer desktop peers thanks to its mighty processor, all while nipping at the heels of beefier entry-level gaming desktops.

Robust quad core processor power. USB 3.0. Integrated Wi-Fi. Decent expandability

300W PSU limits GPU upgradeability. Heavy on the bloatware. Somewhat pricey for its class

Consumer review by: Muddy (newegg.com)

i won this comp and immediately made changes

 

get this computer and put about another 600.00 into it and it can be a great system

I bought this computer factory when it was 899$ elsewhere. Honestly it is great computer once a few changes were made ; Straight out of the box if you do anything other than standard social media or using windows you will need to replace the low...

I cant stress enough that if you replace the power supply and graphics card this is a great computer, if not it is a fair system for daily social media and email

Gateway DX4870-UB318 (DT.GDDAA.012)

 

I didnt buy this on neweggs but i had it for 1 1/2 years ago.

Well... I replaced some of the things in the computer like the PSu and GPU so thats fine now. The 8gb RAM is enough for the games i play

The GPU is horrible. get a different one if you play things like bf4
