Entry Level Media PC

 

I had to upgrade the tuner card and audio card to make it an acceptable Home Theater PC. I suggest either buying a DX series and adding a tuner card or go with the FX series which offers QAM and S/PDIF. I only gave this PC two eggs because of Gateway's...

The LX6200 provides the basics for a home theater PC - includes a tuner card, integrated video (with HDMI), a Vista Media Center remote and integrated 7 channel audio. It has lots of memory and the quad core processor has no problems keeping up with VMC

The TV tuner card can only receive NTSC or ATSC signals (not QAM needed for digital cable). Analog TV picture quality is very poor and not viewable on a large screen. The integrated audio has no S/PDIF out for digital audio. There are very few slots...

Good base computer, limited upgrades

 

It's a nice starting computer, however if you plan on putting in a nice video card like an Nvidia 8800 or higher, then you'll need to replace the power supply as well.

Easy to add 2 extra sata 2 hard drives in the front door of the computer, easy to swap them out between reboots

1. Not easy to upgrade, you lose slots when doing so

Update on my previous review

 

Just to give you an idea on how much I have modified this computer, here's a list of what I have added/replaced:

I have now unlocked most of the potential of this system by upgrading the power supply to this Corsair 750 watt, installing a brand-new AMD Phenom II 940 processor, and finally getting a Diamond Radeon HD 4850 512 MB (the Sapphire 1 GB one wasn't...

Stripped a couple of screws when putting in some parts, but that's more of my fault for not being careful with what I was doing

For the money, it's fantastic

 

on cooling: the side panel vent is great, but the case exhaust fan on the back is junk

For this price range you get alot of bang for your buck

integrated graphics set plays movies and does 3D editing well but you're not gonna play any new titles on it

on cooling: the side panel vent is great, but the case exhaust fan on the back is junk also - there's a built-in fan mount in the front (it channels air from under the case), stick a fast fan in there for an easy drop in case temp

For this price range you get alot of bang for your buck ; easily upgraded w/ 3 extra HDD bays (two of which are in trays in the front), an open PCI slot (if you take out the useless 56k modem) and an expansion slot below the DVD drive ; the 8gigs of...

integrated graphics set plays movies and does 3D editing well but you're not gonna play any new titles on it ; if you want a gamer's rig the CPU will bottleneck the system - there is definite need for OC'ing or a new processor if you plan on a major...

Best Computer I've Owned!

 

I plan to upgrade to a 1 GB Sa****re Radeon 4850 single-slot graphics card, an AMD Phenom 9950, and of course a new 650 watt power supply.

Where do I start

Integrated graphics, but the ATI Radeon HD 3200 is one of the best INTEGRATED solutions on the market currently (which sounds ironic, but true)

Where do I start ; AMD Phenom quad core ; An astonishing 8 GB of RAM for under $1000 ; TV Tuner ; ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics w/ HDMI on the back ; Massive hard drive, and room for 3 more (one more inside, 2 more on the front) ; 400 Watt porwer supply,...

Nice system

 

I'm not sure why everyone complains about Vista. On a fast system like this it is fine.

Bought this for my daughter for christmas at BB with a GW monitor and canon printer. Seems very solid and performance is great. OOB it only gets a 4 perf reading in vista because of the video card. All other metrics are > ; 5. Since it has a 400W...

Video card integrated is mediocre
