Consumer review by: Chuck D (

little piece of #$%^


This little piece of #$%^ has potential. If I can find the drivers, then I'll upgrade to XP, install wifi & a decent audio card then use it as a CD/FLAC/MP3 player in my Audio System.

Nice case. Fairly decent mobo for it's vintage. Got it for free when a friend threw it out. Works, but

Only video output is VGA ; Not much RAM ; 56K modem? How quaint ; Biggest con: Vista

Consumer review by: Mugs (



I've built my last 4 computers before this one. Should not have been lazy and bought a stock model, even for basic computing. Do your research, buy your parts from Newegg, and stay away from junk like this.

Cheap. It's been reliable. I basically wanted something to run Quicken and MS Office. It does that just fine. I hadn't done gaming in a couple of years, so settled for something cheap

It is so slow. The 1 gb of memory just doesn't seem to be enough to give it a little oomph. For the heck of it, tried UT2004--unplayable. Just ordered a EVGA 256 geforce 8600 PCIe--maybe that'll give it a kick in the behind

I use this computer for various home and online uses.  I am happy to find that it is very easy to navagate and reasonably fast.  I would probably try a larger memory cache though.

Gateway GT5428 Tower PC - Versatile and Powerful but RAM is inexplicably half of capacity.


Gateway GT 5428 Desktop PC 11/19/07 Corrected compatibility issue with NOTEPAD to "...2 LINES at a time..." not 2 pages. 11/19/07 Added the "SURPRISE!" .... Note under Memory. For this and other sneaky crimes suspected but not yet ...
