 Gateway's DX4840-07 is a micro-tower mid-range PC that has similar features (and an identical price) to the DX4840-03e model, with a few features interchanged. This model is a more powerful graphics processor, largely because it has a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 315 GPU, and also a more powerful core processor, an Intel i5-650. The tradeoff is that this PC does not have a wireless receiver built-in, and it also has 6GB of RAM as opposed to 8GB. It uses a DVD SuperMulti optical drive, has a 1TB hard disk drive, and includes a keyboard, optical mouse and media card reader. This PC is functional for everyday use and some gaming. It does NOT come with a monitor.
