Cant beat what you get for the price


I have been really happy with this computer for well over a year now. I haven't found a game it cant conquer with as many settings as you can have all the way up. May start showing its age in mid to late 2011 but until I see it, its awesome. Great machine

Great speed, clean build, reliable hardware, good placement of ports and USB, plenty of bay space

There is no wireless built in, and with the extreme size of the video card you CAN NOT fit your own wireless NIC into that slot. You will need a usb or other external wireless if that is the direction you must go. Do not expect to be able to use the...

Screams for the price!


The power supply could be larger but it has no problems with a 12 Gig Ram, a second HD, BlueRay drive, and Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium. . Box and BIOS support another fan. It would be nice to know where the 2nd mother board fan connector is. I have...

You can see all the new Acer stuff hidden around, its probably a good match...

Very fast, Impressive machine...gaming is really good on it...don't know why it's so cheap...comprable machine are a thousand more

Don't ship software with it, so you have to make a backup set of disks, only on Vista you need to go to Gateway and find the Vista upgrade on the Recovery software, then you have to remove the old software (from contro panel) then install the...

Nice pc but....


Mine was DOA out of the box. I opened it up and the power supply wasn't hooked to the motherboard. I then began uninstalling the bloat and upgrading the drivers. The motherboard is a gateway, so you are stuck with their drivers. These FX series...

Cheap and fast out of the box, wonderful video card

It's a gateway and their support is incompetent
