The Gateway E4610 is one of the best desk top systems I have purchased so far. It is reliable and have not had any problems. After adding the 1 tb drive and the 1 gb video card GeFroce 9400 it is absolutely great. I use this computer for every thing. I am an avid gamer and it plays any game I want and just runs smoothly and with out lag in any game I have played. This being my 3rd Gateway has to be the best one yet. If you are looking for a system to do your every day tasks and then some even stock it preforms like a real computer should. For the money it is worth it and it is a nice looking system. Has plenty of room for expansion.This would be a great family computer or even a business system. It was shipped with Windows XP but I put on Windows Vista Black Edition. It is a performer and a work horse. It has been running 24/7 since Jan 2009 when I bought it and still running great, with out any problems at all.
