I am not sure about the graphic card model in the one I am getting, but do you think $300 US is good deal? It is new and the guy never used it and has no use for it.

More about what gateway fx6800 buying
  1. Seems like an OK price . The processor gives up nothing to newer units for gaming , and you have a strong enough power supply to add a decent graphics card

    it must already have a graphics card installed btw . Better check what that is

    Does it have windows? a 64 bit version?

    The guy told me it was an gtx 220 and the os is 64bit. How much more ram do you think this system will need to play newer games and how is this Graphic Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125353 ?
