Gateway LX and FX PCs

Gateway has introduced two new desktop systems, the LX-6200 geared for consumers and the FX-6710 designed for gamers. The LX-6200 uses the AMD Phenom X4 9500 quad-core processor, running at 2.2GHz with a 3.6GHz HyperTransport bus. Graphics are provided from an integrated ATI Radeon HD 3200. A 750GB hard drive provides permanent storage. Four 2GB DDR2 memory modules are provided with the basic system, totaling 8GB. Other features include a 15-in-1 card reader, a TV tuner, HDMI output and Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit.

The FX-6710 offers some of the same specs, including the hard drive, operating system, and connectivity, but with a few upgrades for gaming. Intel's Q9400 Core 2 Quad processor is used, running at 2.66GHz; graphics are powered by a much faster ATI Radeon HD 4850 dedicated GPU, offering faster frame rates and 512MB of its own memory. Users can also take advantage of an added eSATA port for connecting storage devices. The memory combines two 2GB modules with two 1GB modules of 800MHz DDR2 dual-channel memory for a total of 6GB.

The Gateway LX-6200 and FX-6710 are both available now, with the former priced at $780, while the latter can be obtained for $1,200.
