Gateway FX6850-51u

 

The Gateway FX6850-51u is a well-priced entry-level gaming PC, but there are desktops being sold for the same price with more features and better performance.

Huge 1TB hard drive. Contains Nvidia discrete graphics. Inexpensive. Easily-accessible hard drive and optical drive bays. Wi-Fi.

No USB 3.0 or eSATA. No Blu-ray.

Gateway FX6850-51u

 

Offering strong general performance for an appealingly low price, the $999 Gateway FX6850-51U paints a tantalizing picture. But in a category that's crowded with versatile, overclocked machines of all shapes and sizes, this PC gets lost in the shuffle.

Hotswap bays make for easy hard-drive installation ; Attractive chassis ; Strong general performance

Lacks diversity in connections

Its low price and solid benchmark results are great, but the Gateway FX6850-51U ultimately fails to stand out in a crowded pack.

Work Horse

 

Fast, reliable, powerful. Great for multi-tasking, gaming, or just browsing. 2 front access removable hdd trays is pretty cool

Lack of documentation or recovery media. App to create your own 4 DVD set of backups. Front hdd trays are not hot swap
