Gateway, like Dell, wants to make itself a contendor in the high profit margin area of gaming computers. But instead of buying Alienware, Gateway's released the FX510XL, which got a score of 4 out of 5 from PC mag.

The FX510XL comes with a 21" LCD widescreen monitor, Logitech Z-5300e 5.1 speakers, 3.73 GHz Pentium EE 965, 2 GB of ram, 1 TB of hard disk, a dual layer DVD burner, ATI X1900 Crossfire video card, and a TV tuner. All these parts together combine to make the total price $4,781.00, which is prohibitively expensive to the average PC gamer. But compared to similar offerings from other high end gaming PC makers, it's actually a value.
