Gateway's FX6840-15e roars out of starting gate with a race car's aesthetic and the speed to match--an 2.93 GHz Intel core i7-870 Processor, 1TB variable RPM hard drive, and ATI Radeon HD 5750 graphics card with 1GB of discrete video memory presents a high quality gaming desktop aimed at those who want to play game content or create it themselves. The processor uses technologies such as Turbo Boost, Virtualization and Hyper-Threading to dole out the exact amount of power needed, mirrored by an eco-friendly hard drive that saves energy by also parsing out power according to necessity. 8 MB of DDR3 memory ensures sleek 3D and game performance, while the ATI Radeon HD graphics card can handle up to the most demanding DirectX11 video games and applications. Front and side ports offer 10 USB and one HDMI port, and the Gateway FX6840-15e has thoughtfully included technology for linking to other devices--it features a USB-equipped storage tray for devices, a Multi-In-1 Digital Media Reader, and DVD DL writer. Upon booting it up, buyers can also expect to find 64-bit Genuine Windows Home Premium on the desktop.
