I have both bought and built computers before. This little machine is by far the quietest. In fact, if it didn't have a light on it, I might not know it is on. First a little about my usage. I write code, which means I sometimes have huge processor spikes which can grind a system to a halt. So far, that really hasn't happened with 4 CPUs. I also play games and have found all of my older PC games run with everything turned up to the highest levels. Such as Half Life 2 Episode 2. While there are things I don't like about the system, they are relatively minor.

Pros:
* Fast. Really fast. Including games.
* Quad Core CPU means even if I start compiling nothing slows down.
* Graphics card was *slightly* better than advertised according to drivers (It says my card is a ATI Radeon HD 5770). Your millage may vary.
* Windows 7 is mostly better than Vista. This is my first 64 bit system and it runs like a champ.
* 8 Gigs is awesome. I've never even come close to running out of memory.
* PC worked well hooked up to my HDTV, even playing games on the HDTV looks amazing.

Cons:
* I don't like the feel of the mouse and keyboard.
* I don't like the look of the case that much.
* PSU and motherboard don't offer much room for upgrades.
* Some stuff I did not want had to be uninstalled and a lack of installation disks is unfortunate.
* Warranty is pretty limited... if I ever need it.
* Sound crackles sometimes. A reboot fixes this.

One other thing I will note... A previous reviewer mentioned not wanting to open the case in fear of voiding the warranty.

Ive been looking around for the past few months for a new computer, and regardless of how much I looked and calculated things out, besides building your own, this is probably the best value for the price.

I used to be able to have time to upgrade my old computer, but the old computer i had just cant get any more upgrades. I didnt have the time to make my own system. After spending two or more weeks looking at the internet, this Gateway was the best value. I looked everywhere - hp, dell, cyberpower, ibuypower, etc. and this one particular system was cheapest.

It has been running great thus far. I have had no major issues with it, other than the fact that it does take some time to make the Recovery disk - and i wonder why it couldnt have been premade. Otherwise, the system has been working excellently with no problems. Setup was extraordinarily simple. The box is relatively stylish, but a little on the larger side. The front only has 2 USB ports, but there are interestingly 2 on the top of the computer. The system is fast and the vid card, while i havent spent tons of time taxing it, seems to be performing great.

I love this computer, I switch over from Apple computer to a PC because Mac computer are getting out of my price range right now. It took some time to get use to a PC but I'm loving how fast this PC is, and it's nice and quite. It dose what I need it to do.

This computer is sleek sexy and fast. The DX4831-07 has a quad core I5 processor in it, and 8 GB of memory. The newest 27" Imac also has the quad core I5 processor, but only comes with 4GB of memory standard (8 for an additional $200) and costs $2000-$2200. I added a 24" HD monitor for and extra $200 and the total cost was still less than half of what I would have paid for a comperable Mac.

Windows 7 is running all of my programs wonderfully, It's fast and easy to work with, and I couldn't be happier. I am an architect and will be using this computer to run memory intense 3D CAD modeling programs, photo editing software and other video and graphics intense programs. This machine can definitely handle it. Itunes is even loaded on my computer to manage all of my music, movies and apps for my Iphone, so don't worry about apple products working with other apple products, go PC.

The only issue I've had with this computer is that it has a DVD player and not Blu-Ray. The screen resolution looks great. Pictures and graphics are amazing on the large resolution monitor I bought, but then I put in a DVD and playback looks fuzzy by comparison. It's not bad, it just falls short of what the machine is capable of. For a couple hundred dollars though, you could get an internal or external to add on, and you're still $800 cheaper than a Mac.

This computer does everything I need it to do and quietly. It's zippy core I5 processor, 8 gigs of ram, and ATI graphics card are more than enough to handle my Photoshop projects (CS4) plus all my other everyday computing needs. I have the PC hooked up to my HDTV making it a great media center as well. And how convenient to have all those extra USB inputs on the front and top. I am completely satisfied with this purchase which was a great value for the price.

I bought this computer from TigerDirect about two months ago, and have been nothing but pleased ever since. It's fast, has everything on it I can imagine wanting, including lots of hard drive space, tons of memory, more USB ports than you can shake a stick at, and a nice sleek look. The i5 chip is plenty zippy. PC World has found it to be a little slower than the top of the i3 line of chips, which is a bit of a surprise, since the general idea is that i3s are a little slower than i5s, which are a little slower than i7s. But for my purposes, we're dancing on the head of a pin.

I gather from reviews that some folks received their computers with hard drives disconnected from the motherboards. That's disturbing to hear, but a two-minute fix, if you're not afraid to open the box. (And no, it doesn't void the warranty, as one reviewer worries.) In any event, that wasn't my experience. I popped the hood and found everything was connected.

It's also the quietest computer I've ever owned. Sitting at the computer with your eyes closed you wouldn't know it was on. I wouldn't have said that my previous computer's whirring noise bothered me, but the quiet is so much better!

On the software front, it had a little bloatware on it, but nothing that bombards the user, and nothing that couldn't be turned off or removed pretty easily. It came with Microsoft Works, which was helpful not because I wanted to use it, but because it is qualifying software for upgrade versions of Office 2007, which I was running on my previous computer. So I didn't have to buy Office to go with. (Microsoft's abandoned upgrade versions with Office 2010, otherwise I might have taken the plunge.)

My sole and tiny complaint: In sleep mode, the power button's blue light flashes forever. I'd be happier if it stopped blinking after 20 minutes. But that's it.
