I bought my gateway dx4300 refurbished and i dont regret it at all. Ive had it for some time i got it with a quad core 8gb of ram 1gb ati graphics loaded. I love it its super fast tons of storage and loads of ports. The graphics card isnt the newest but it handles almost anything i throw at it. plays sims 3 and far cry 2 which is really all i play. Build quality is suprising coming from gateway. But since there owned by acer i think they have stepped up there game. i expect this pc to last for some time to be honest. no issues yet runs smooth. I have it paired with a gateway 23inch hd monitor and it looks great together. Im not a hrad core gamer and this pc handles all my daily tasks and more. the quad exceeds my expectations i came from a core 2 duo and will nto go back . the 8gb of ram make things fly. adobe cs5 runs like a dream its just a solid performer for the cash and i will buy from gateway again.
