Re: Gateway 550GR - Good Comp?
I had that exact same comp, seriously, a while ago. It broke down on me. The cpu failed. lol... well, I did overclock, on standard air cooling, the heatsink that came with the comp, to, about, ah, 3.76ghz. Lol.... the cpu was around 67C. Anyways, the comp is good for the money. I personally would go with gateway's line of amd's. Much better performing comps. The prices should be around the same too. But, again, the comp is good. The ram is cheap though, it might fail too. The x300se, pci ex. my friend, worked well for me. I could play cs:s at ok settings, but nothing fancy. My setup is way better now, however. All in all, as long as you don't overclock, the comp is fine.
Macbook Pro and Logitech z5500s. All you really need.
