3 out of 5 eggsGood Comp

Pros: Good case for what comes in it

Cons: Bad out of the box airflow. You need to add some. I had to take off the side and put a mini desk fan to push heat off the gfx. cpu heatsink/fan is pretty good though.

Other Thoughts: In the process of upgrading from this.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff.

Pros: Runs very smooth. I recently bought Crysis out of curiousity and was suprised at running it at high settings at a decent fps o.o

I expected to run WoW and Steam software with a massive amount of multitasking, but this exceeds my expectations.

Cons: If there was one, it would be Vista.

"No thanks" to that control-freak of an OS.

Other Thoughts: It's funny how users jump the gun at a simple disconnected disc drive - things happen. Apparently a minor mishap that can be fixed by a half-knowledgable user obliterates the computer's worth :/

2 out of 5 eggsShowed up Broken

Pros: Can run multiple programs quickly.

Cons: Doesn't recognize DVD drive. Upon opening case discovered this is because the drive isn't connected. How do I fix this? I have no idea, having spent four hours on hold with Gateway tech support with no answer.

Other Thoughts: I should have just built my own.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing

Pros: so it came in 3 days as promised. came in perfect shape no dings scratches or missing/broken pieces. Setup was a breeze took about 3 mins and it runs amazing. The Geforce 9800 is really nice too COD4 runs max settings easybreezy and its just overall a nice comp.

Cons: non so far

Other Thoughts: worth the money

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

Pros: Amazing, runs fast, boots fast, awesome graphics. Have not had a problem yet. I can run Crysis at dam near optimum graphics with no choppyness, and thats saying something. Running at around 11 FPS on COD4 with optimum graphics.

Cons: I do not notice the heat as much as the others stated, there isnt anything yet that makes me unhappy with my purchase.

Other Thoughts: Very fast, dependable, user friendly desktop. Wether your new to gaming or long time user, this is by far the best PC you can get for your money. Researched for about a month. You will be happy

5 out of 5 eggsIt's sweet

Pros: It's like, so quiet, freaks me out considering the 747 it's replacing. Boots fast into Vista; programs ready 2 run almost immediately after boot. All the ports I want. Haven't tried any major games, but I figure it'll handle all but the most demanding of graphic settings. Portal looks so freakin' awesome on this.

Cons: Does get toasty. It'll be nice in winter. Case is kinda cheap plastic. Power button doesn't clicky nicely, "did I turn it off? I don't know :O". Mouse and speakers are cheap, I use different ones. Good luck finding Labelflash media easily. Small potatos really...

Other Thoughts: First desktop I ever bought as a system as opposed to buying components and assembling. I'm super pleased :D

4 out of 5 eggsNot to bad

Pros: This is a great mid range computer... This was my 1st try at Windows Vista, 64-bit at that. It runs really quick and is super quiet due it's one and only fan cooling the processor, not including the cooling fan on the video card. The keyboard and mouse are fairly decent and not just a cheap throw in to make it look complete. I used the keyboard but kept the mouse as a backup for some other time.

Cons: IT RUNS REALLY HOT... like i said in the pros it's super quiet with one fan. I feel like Gateway could have thrown a few more silent fans to cool it down. My processor was running about 55C with no load and 65C with a load. After putting in two 80mm slow quiet fans and artic silver on the heatsink and processor it dropped to about 48C and 55C with a load.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a computer that will play all of todays games with the video settings set at a respectable setting... this is your computer. I don't play very many games, as of right now Age of Conan with almost everything at max gets me 40-50 FPS.

5 out of 5 eggssurprisingly gOOd

Pros: I don't use this thing for gaming. It's primarily used for creative suites that typically drain PC's, but this machine can handle the largest files. I can open PS, InD, DW, FW all in about 5-6 seconds - meaning, I rapid click all the icons at once and have them open in under 6 seconds! Amazing if you ask me.

Cons: The video card works great, no lag, but does get a little hot. I could have used one more IEEE port on the back.

Other Thoughts: Dual Apple 20" Cinemas + 1T eSata + 2nd DVD burner. I'd like to set up RAid but haven't crossed that bridge yet. Oh yea, I"m an XP fan but i left Vista64 and actually hate using XP now - only bad part is RecordSmart and Virtual Drive won't work - all other software is fine, so far.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice system - quiet and fast. Plays Gears of War @ 1680x1050 with very consistent mid-50's FPS - that's with everything turned to High and Directx 10 with anti-aliasing turned on as well. Current release of the Nvidia Universal display drivers does not list the 9800GT as supported card. Until then, divers shipped with this system (175.16) work fine. Added an additional hard drive and DVD-ROM drive - a little tight but the system was built to support the expansion. Also, the system doesn't ship with much "bloat-ware" installed - what is there can easily be removed if not wanted.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsFANTASTIC

Pros: A perfect package of speed and performance...6GB of Ram and Vista 64 with Intel's Quad Processor means I never wait on my computer!

I took out the 56k Modem and installed Encore's
ENLEI-N wireless network card and it works perfectly!

The case is nice and the trim is like a metalic orange wich looks very nice...the mouse, speakers and keyboard were all great..(keyboard has a padded rest that is very comfy)

Motherboard had enough space to allow me to add heatsinks to the memory, and I was also able to add a hard drive fan to the 640GB HDD that is partitioned into (C: 580GB and 15.5 on the Recovery)

not too much bloatware installed and I haven't had any problems with Vista 64...Just a perfect PC

Cons: No Case Fan installed...not that big of a deal..just be sure to supply your own...but it does have a huge fan and heatsink on the processor blowing out the side of the case...just nothing out the back!

Other Thoughts: hooked up to Sceptre 22" LCD
