Default Are gateways anygood?

I am looking around for a good gaming desktop that is less than 700$. My uncle found me a HP Pavilion p6140f Desktop PC, however, it ran out of stock. i found a good computer that has what i want but has a crappy video card which i can replace. Its a Gateway® DX4710-07. does anyone recomend me getting from them?

For under $700 and gaming you will probably want to build.
You won't find a good gamer that is storebought for that much money.

Build your own and you can get a pc equivalent to a 1200 dollar gateway for only 700 dollars

Guys, answer the question. Not everyone wants to build a computer like us. I had a Gateway computer for 7 years. It ran extremely well and not much went wrong with it.

Sorry, but yes Gateways are good.
They are the only computers I have.
I have up on HP Compaq, and stuff like that.
Go for Gateway.
Word of warning though, you won't get a good gamer for $700, sorry

It's usually like $100 to $200 less, not $500

I had a Gateway once too. Great machine, but if you want a good gaming machine, building is the way to go. Just ask here and we can help find the right components to build it for you and give you step by step instructions on how to set it up!

Isn't Gateway going out of business? I don't think I would be one if they are, no support.
