FX7026 Review

 

I upgraded the power supply to a Antec Earthwatts 650 model. Fit perfectly and also draws less wattage then the 400watt model, this is due to Antec being like 98% efficient. So my backup batter says it will last approx 43 minutes, then 39 with the old...

For the money it is a great computer. Very fast right out of the box. Gateway marketed these computers as a gaming computer. Comes with Vista 64 preinstalled but also comes with Vista 32 disk

Power Supply only 400watts, seems very low for a system like this. Memory is only 667mhz, when it can handle 800mhz and does not have heat sinks on memory

Power Supply

 

I am just wondering if someone can mention how the power supply is with this computer. Is it just a standard 430w?

I never fill out these reviews but this is so fast and so cheap. I love the 9300 chip

Fast, Speed, Cheap but not built cheap

Buy compatible Ram If you don't it slows to a crawl

Same price to build and good customer service

 

Before this comp I had a single core Processor and 512 mb RAM and 60 gig HDD BLEH! This comp freaking rules. Get this if you are worried bout building. If you want a comp even better like dual 8800GT oc then build cause this is the only comp your gonna...

The price. Try to build this computer for less. You will at most save 30 dollars. Then get a nice keyboard and mouse and then the speakers. I play Crysis on HIGH settings online and never had a problem. I was gonna build till I saw this

Not the computers problem. More of my internet connection. Lags when d/l alot. I d/l like 10 things at once and STILL wanna play online haha. I got a comcast cable connection and it still wont do what I want it to do. Its either pay 50 bucks a month...

Good value

 

Good price for a pre-built system

Comes loaded with crapware, which causes significant performance and stability issues and isn't easy to remove

For an 'off the shelf' machine, it's an outstanding value.

 

As a turnkey gaming machine solution, the FX7026 is an interesting set of compromises that would closely mirror those made by the average 'builder on a budget', with only a few additional concessions to cost-cutting.

The FX7026 is a solid machine for the price, combining a decent (if not spectacular) Intel-sourced motherboard, a Q9300, an overclocked EVGA 8800GT (650/950x2), 4GB of RAM and Vista64 Home Premium at a price that's roughly equal to the cost of building...

Expansion options are fairly limited by the µ ; ATX motherboard (2 PCIEx1 and 1 PCI slot) and 'just barely enough' 400W power supply

Good Balanced System - worth the money.

 

Do not buy this if you planning to open it and add memory (4gig is plenty) or replace any components, it is balanced system any wrong approach on Windows VISTA and limited motherboard might lead to conflicts or insufficient system resources.

Highly recommended if you need out of the box top-of-the-line system which

1. Not really this machine's problem: Windows VISTA. At this point any old software/game or hardware might not run at all or run with crashes/errors if it wasnt designed for Vista 64bit

Pretty Sweet for the Price

 

For the specs the box has e.g. the newest quad proc, decent 4GB memory and the twin 320s, the price is definitely right. I couldn't have built the same spec box cheaper myself. I have never owned a product from this manufacturer and I was very leery. I...

The specs on this system are pretty decent. The memory and quad processor run well. The video card, while not the "highest end" product runs well and I have had 0 problems running the 64bit vista. The PC is stable and runs my adobe cs3 much faster than...

I would like a little more storage, but that will be remedied soon with the addition of a 750GB hd. Not to keen on the orange color scheme either

When it works...

 

Excellent value for money!

When it's not crashing, it blazes through high-end games, making it all look easy and amazingly beautiful

Unfortunately, I am still working through gateway tech support to determine why the graphics card keeps crashing the entire system. Currently waiting for a new card

Good bang for the buck

 

The HD's came all nice and partitioned and there is almost no ugly software. gateway won with this pc.

My pc needed replacing fast and for the specs that this has, there is almost nothing out there that can beat it for the price. The 8800gt is quiet, the fans are basically silent, and it runs peacefully. I just tested the premium video option in Eve and...

The sound seems very off for some reason. Less loud and my audio programs refused to use surround sound even though the audio settings were set for it. Also. Be careful. The PSU is only 400 watts so either replace it with something higher if you want...

Screaming fast. Delivering raw power and maximum performance. And that's just for starters. The Gateway FX Series is nothing less than Gateway greatest desktop - ever.
