Just add your choice of video card - and enjoy!


You really need just to add your choice of video card - and you will be all set. My choice was MSI RX2600XT-T2D512EZ (MSI RX2600XT-T2D512EZ ATI Radeon HD 2600XT 512MB GDDR3 PCIEx16 DX 10) with radiators instead of cooling fan - fits perfectly in this...

Fast CPU & HD disk, very quiet and upgreadable. 400W psu still pulls it up if you add decent video card (a must) and even maybe a second HD (that is what I did)

Not much I can think of. Well, maybe power button blue LED is too bright... But top be happy you need to add decent video - othervise you will get 1.0 rating from Vista because of video (all other stuff scored 5.5 - 5.9). Actually, this can be...

Great PC (for a boxed PC)


To add my 8800GT card I'll need to upgrade the PS to be adequate for long term use. Also need to relocate the HD and make a custom mount to add another cooling fan in front. Bad design for cooling but will live with this.

Fast CPU, cost less than building a similar PC myself. (650$ AR) Smooth running, good looks, pretty quiet running. A fast PC compared with what you normally get with a "boxed" PC. I do like the keyboard, opt. mouse, & great sound on this MB

Lacks additional space in case for extra case fans to be added. The 400w power supply only adequate for modest video cards. The HD not the best, fairly noisy when accessing

Very upgradeable, comes with 400W psu and 6 pin pci express adapter built in, fast quad processor! beautiful metallic case

loud...HD is loud, constantly making noises,, DVD RW is loud.. runs very fast but very loud, this is NOT a quiet computer. Intel motherboard, restrictive

Gateway GT5636E Core 2 Quad Q6600(2.40GHz) 2GB DDR2 400GB Intel GMA 3000 Windows Vista Home Premium


This was my first time dealing with Vista. It took a couple of days, but I got the hang of it. All of my programs and equipment works very well with it, minus my printer. Had to go into the manufacturer website and download updated drivers, now the...

I upgraded to this computer after my old Gateway finally started giving problems after three years of being used daily. I am amazed at the speed of this computer. I love the 400 GB hard-drive, added all of my games and photo editing programs, and have...

The built in graphics could not handle my high-end games. Installed a nvidia 8500 gt graphics card, and problem solved
