1 out of 5 eggsOn 2nd thought...

Pros: Has seen more air miles than I have.

Cons: Has spent almost as much time in the repair shop as it has on my desk.

Other Thoughts: I previously wrote a review after a month or so of having this PC. First impressions were great, but since then (about 4 months in) I've had nothing but problems with this PC. Random freezing and blue screens. Gateway's customer service has been so so. I've sent it in for repair twice. First time I was told "couldn't reproduce problem". The 2nd time they set everything back to factory settings. I've been bumped to level 2 tech support.

Bottom line though is at this point even if it is fixed who wants a PC with a history of problems? I spent A LOT of money on this, and this PC is meant to last years.

I realize like a car every once in a while there will be a dud. I'm hoping Gateway can come through and offer an acceptable solution (ideally a replacement). Until then though my first impression of their products hasn't been positive and I cannot recommend anyone risk their hard earned money on their products.

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: -Quiet
-Extra hard drive bays
-Blue Ray!!!
-Fast, fast, fast
-Minimum bloatware
-lots of usb ports
-case is handy

Cons: -heavy
-bit pricy
-bulky

Other Thoughts: My wife and I had planned on replacing our Dell from 04 around December, but when it kicked the bucket recently we had to move fast. This FX fits the bill perfectly. With the I7 processor and 9 gigs of memory everything loads up quickly.

The only game I play WOW has it's settings on ultra high and doesn't miss a beat even in Dalaran. Doubt it would have much trouble with newer games considering the video card. Sims works just fine for the wife.

Minimum of bloatware, extra hard drive bays, multi-card readers, and Blue Ray player are all great.

So needless to say if you have the coin this is a good way to spend it. In the end sometimes it is the little things which brings me to the case. There is what I call the "ashtray" on the top which is an area to set devices such as a phone or camera. USB plug-ins are nearby and as such it's easy to plug in and charge if needed. HUGE upgrade IMO considering I use to have to set my phone on the floor to do this.

I have to agree with bhbest
review. I cann't get over the wonderful quality. It's hugh. The onboard sound is good. Plenty of everything.

Cons: Should have upgraded sooner.

Other Thoughts: New egg is wonderful. I ordered it at 12 noon it was at my home the next day!
I can not believe how much faster I can surf the web and how awesome videos look with the great video card.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, cool & composed

Pros: Fast, quiet, cool. Nice case. Good components, 750 W Power supply. Bluray & DVD. Handy placement of card reader. Plenty of USB ports. Good Video card. Slide in HDD slots. Like the lighting. Minimum of bloatware.

Cons: Basic mouse & keyboard. No bonus software. Minimum of documentation, however, plenty of documentation on related web site.

Other Thoughts: So far so good. This machine runs well as it should. Easy setup. No glitches. Did I say quiet? Bought this instead of building my own. My old homebuilt system P4-XP ran well, (components from newegg) but was severely out of date and unable to keep up with current technology. Heard some horror stories about Gateway reliability, but so far looks like I have a good one. If this machine gives me the service of my old one it will truly be a bargain. I can't say enough good things about Newegg service and delivery. The best!

5 out of 5 eggsbest value on the market

Pros: lightning fast processor, 750 w power supply, 9 Gigs of RAM, Awesome HD video card, minimal bloatware, many ports, hot swappable drive bays to name a few

Cons: none I can think of

Other Thoughts: I have been searching for about 6 months for a PC with the perfect spec sheet. I am not a big gamer so dual vid cards etc.. weren't big requirements for me but I did want something that was well built, had decent power, didn't come loaded with junk and had the latest technology built in. This Gateway was it. It has a super fast and powerful I7 chip, 750 W power supply, plenty of RAM (9 GIGS) and a high quality ATI 5850 1 GB HDMI ready video card. Plenty of USB ports and even comes with hot swappable drive bays on the front side and a firewire port. Not to mention a card reader and this machine is the machine I had been specking out for months and was always over 2 grand when I was finished. Installed my apps/external hardware no problem. hooking it up to my Viewsonic 27 inch via HDMI and I was blown away by the quality. Of course it did take some tweaking of the settings to get the screen right. The machine is also whisper quiet, you cannot even hear that it's on. This is the PC w

4 out of 5 eggsSomewhat Pricey But Worth It

Pros: Intel Quad i7 930, 9GB Ram - great, Large Hard Drive - right on, upper tier Video Card Radeon 5850, and let me not forgert Blu-ray Drive plus a 2nd DVD drive. All the necessary connections on the rear that I need and more. Easy, no hang-up Setup. Oh, it's fast! Pretty much Windows 7 has handled my software installations okay. This Gateway - so far so good for this 1st day of use. Newegg is great. Order it on Tuesday early AM, got it on Thursday.

Cons: Somewhat pricey for my pockets but because of all the features, I had to get this FX6803-25. Price may come down but I don't, so far, regret getting it at this price. Cheap keyboard, imo, so I've replaced it already. These days, I kind of expect that.

Other Thoughts: I'll try to report back once I have used this for a while and let you know how this computer has held up. I looked very hard at 2 of the Ibuypower Lan Warriors and almost purchased one. This Gateway, however, won over with all of the above "Pros" and price. Maybe I should have given it a 5.
