5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget PC

Pros: -Inexpensive
-Lots of upgradability
-Standard parts (cheap and easy fixes)
-No "security strip" keeping you out of the machine

Cons: -Keyboard & Mouse are cheap
-Power supply is only 300w
-No physical recovery media

Other Thoughts: My "cons" are so minor I couldn't bring myself to take an egg off.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Computer!

Pros: This is a great computer, especially for the price. This system has an Intel Core i5 quad-core processor, and it's under $500! It's fast and easy to navigate. Aesthetically, it's a beautiful computer and it works perfectly.

Cons: It plays high end games pretty well, however I've realized that the graphics card needs to be upgraded.. it's pretty basic.. but again, for the price, this is definitely not a complaint, just an observation. Also, there were no "system restore" disks included, nor was there any paperwork (owners manual, etc) included, instead it's stored on the computer only. I guess this is Gateway's way of saving trees, nice!

Other Thoughts: Overall, I couldn't be happier with this computer.. the fact that it has an Intel Core i5 quad-core processor and it's under $500, alone, makes this a great deal.

Just be sure to purchase at least (5) DVD+RW's so you can create your "system restore" disks immediately (four needed for system restore, one needed for drivers and backup)

5 out of 5 eggsA solid foundation

Pros: A real Core i5 for cheap! For the money, this is a very fast CPU, and a very functional and serviceable machine. Normally in this price range you find clunky AMD CPUs than run like old Core2's, or a Core i3 if you are lucky.

This processor is a solid performing foundation that makes future upgrades like memory and video card actually worth it. The CPU is honestly over-powered relative to the limited amount of RAM and integrated video this machine ships with.

This machine works great for normal office and web tasks right out of the box, but offers the ability to grow in the future.

USB 3.0 is supported, an SD card reader is built in and easily accessible.

Full-speed AGP 16X is available for future use.

Doesn't have Windows 8!

Does have a 64-bit version of Windows 7!

Internal wiring is tight and out-of-the-way.

Still offers PS/2 ports for older mice and keyboards.

Plenty of USB ports.

Getting in and out of the case is easy, not always true on cheaper machines. Popping in more memory was a breeze.

The integrated Intel 2000 video *will* support dual monitors out of the box, though one will be on VGA. I am running dual screens right now on the standard Intel 2000 integrated video: a 21.5" on VGA and a 24" on an HDMI-DVI cable. Both are running 1920x1080. Yes, the VGA connected screen looks a little "soft" on the analog connection, but I am okay with that for now. The functionally matters to me more than anything.

I am planning a video card upgrade in the future (which will also require a power supply upgrade).

For the price, I am very happy with the performance of this machine. I am astonished at what you can get for under $500 these days!

Cons: Many of the cons should be obvious, just know what you are getting ahead of time...

The integrated video is inadequate for most(all?) modern gaming. Hi-def video and normal desktop tasks work fine.

Video outs are 1 HDMI and 1 VGA. *There is no DVI port on this machine* Be aware of that when you buy your cables! A DVI screen will require an HDMI-DVI cable.

4 GB of memory really isn't enough to let the Core i5 shine; fortunately memory is cheap!

Power supply is inadequate for anything beyond maybe an additional internal hard drive.

Power-on light is brighter than needed (bright white). The hard drive activity light (also the same bright white) inexplicably faces at an angle down, towards floor, behind the top curved lip of the case... why???

Other Thoughts: When I got this machine I immediately dropped in a 4x4 16GB matched kit of Corsair XMS3 memory (Newegg part #N82E16820233190), maxing the machine out. For a mere $580 grand total I got a machine that is a multitasking monster. I found out 16 GB of RAM is actually really difficult to fill.

With 16 GB, no matter how many programs or tabs I open, I cannot make this machine slow down! So nice!

Be aware that gaming will likely require a ~$250 upgrade; ~$80 for a quality power supply and a ~$170 for a decent video card. This is my plan. From my research, the Core i5 should be able to deliver some decent frame rates on modern games once the video upgrade is done.

For now though, a very solid machine. One of the best values on the market for a pre-built machine.

I went through and tried to build an equivalent machine to this Gateway on pcpartpicker.com, and I found that I would usually come out $70-$100 more expensive than this computer sells for on Newegg... And I would still have the labor and time of putting it all together myself!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome PC

Pros: A very good price, i had been looking for a new pc to upgrade from my old 2002 gateway, which still works great. This gateway come with an Inter i5 , and 4 gb of ram, which i also upgraded to 12GB and it runs really fast,quite, I am really Happy with it. I am looking to add a blue-ray burner soon and upgrade the video card, but will have to also upgrade the power supply . All in all great computer and not to pricy!!!

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good

Pros: A Step up form my ~6yr old Vista 32bit gaming rig. It was a Hand-me-down Computer so... :D

Anyway this is a vast improvement over my old computer, Now I can finally buy Skyrim and start playing...Seems like I'm always ~1yr behind everyone else when it comes to new games. :/

Cons: Video Card is probably not sufficient for most games as stated in the other review. Integrated GPUs are not the best for gaming, Will work if you plan on just playing videos and online flash games.

Other Thoughts: But that con I pointed out is rather not a con but a statement, I mean you are on newegg after all. So you would have access to a wide array of better video cards, PSU, Memory, and Everything else to upgrade the computer with.

3 out of 5 eggsum

Pros: Very good processor it can easily support big games, Ram is okay

Cons: The graphics are bad if you think you can get this computer and play a graphic intensive game YOUR WRONG yes they are adequate but not for gaming

Other Thoughts: overall good computer just get maybe a new graphics card and maybe more RAM and it will be a great gaming computer, but if you want a household computer you really don`t need something as powerful as this. Also Gateway is a good brand but the do have some rip off computers so watch out!
