thanks for the reply! in the case of getting the best of both worlds, is it really worth the extra $500 dollars? Will this fort of setup play games well for the next gen , MW2 and what not?
Is it worth 500 over the FX? Not likely. Only if you are running apps that can take advantage of an i7 (most games can't/don't).
MW2 is based off the same engine as COD4, just with a few shiny new features. The Gateway FX shouldn't have any problem with it.
