I actually lucked out, and got a refurbished gateway (fx6800 01e) about 16 months ago. I paid between $600-$650, and have not had a problem with it EVER. Plays every game at high that I could ever ask it to, and it's quiet as a mouse. I literally just bought it for the Core i7 920...The parts alone would have cost me more. I recommend refurbished computers and T.V.'s (with warranties, of course) to everyone.
Intel Core i7 920
ATI Radeon HD 4850
3 GB DDR3 RAM (Uprgraded to a total of 7GB RAM)
750 GB Hard Drive
At the time, I was really set on getting a Blu Ray player, which this didn't come with, but not anymore. I have means of getting HD movies (720 and 1080P) quite easily, and at will.
