Gateway FX541XT


Gateway's highest-end performance desktop aspires to be everything to everybody. It takes a few missteps, but mostly it succeeds, especially with its price.

Great deal for high-end hardware; strong jack-of-all trades performance and features

Gamers would swap out some of the extras for better 3D cards; 32-bit Windows can't use all 4GB of included memory

Expert Review


Gateway's FX541XT gaming PC demonstrates a couple of noticeable leaps ahead of its predecessor, the FX540XT. But most of the pleasures—and problems—of that model remain.

Terrific DX9 gaming performance, Includes Blu-ray/HD DVD combo optical drive

Frustratingly loud, even when idling, Poor DirectX 10 performance at highest resolutions

Product Specifications

The Gateway FX series delivers extreme quad-core power, letting you scream through multi-threaded programs with unparalleled speed, and its cutting-edge NVIDIA easily tackles ultra-fast frame rates and visually rich apps. And all this power is housed in a slick design with matching keyboard and mouse and system accents.
