Gateway has upgraded its FX lineup of gaming desktops, and we got a hold of the budget gaming model, which has a quad-core Phenom CPU and an NVIDIA 8800 GT, all for just over a grand. It's a great gaming machine for the money, and is eerily silent in...

Quiet; solid performance for the price; affordable

Not as flashy as other gaming systems; airflow issues; boring keyboard and mouse

Gateway FX7020 and FHD2400 Review

 

It's been years since $1,100 was a low budget for retail desktop shoppers. We remember spending that much in January 2007 to get a dual-core (Athlon 64 X2) Media Center PC with a TV tuner and all the trimmings, including a 250GB hard disk, DVD burner,...

This computer is awesome! Though if you're an extremely hardcore gamer looking for the best for the buck, the Fx7024 is a better choice. However if you're a casual/hardcore mix looking for the best for the buck, and like a little extra on the side...

The fastest system I've got so far. I had other gateway system with Intel quad core which did not achieve what I was looking for.

I'm very impressed by this machine. My first game to load was Crysis and it runs very smooth with all the setting on very high at 4x anti-aliasing and at 1280×1024 resolutions.
