Gamers will especially appreciate the fact that the Gateway FX530 can be purchased direct from Gateway with over-clocking capabilities. Fully tested and backed by a Gateway limited warranty(5), the Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 dual-core processor can be ordered over-clocked for maximum performance. Unlike most other major PC OEMs, Gateway will warranty the system, providing a previously unavailable level of reliability and support while delivering new performance heights.
That's really unheard of. Even CPU manufacturers themselves state that operating a CPU outside it's rated frequency voids your warranty, and many hardware manufacturers will refuse to replace your hardware if they find damage from overvolting or overclocking. Coupled with upgradeability such as compatibility with quad-core processors, it actually looks to be an ideal fit for someone wanting the best but not wanting to build it themselves. Gateway has been pretty silent for quite a while, so it is rather surprising to seem them now offering such high-end machines.
