myself ive never had a problem with gateway

ive got an 820gm myself and its running rock solid
ive thrown in a 3.2ghz cpu and 1 gb of ram and it runs great

recently put a nivida graphics card in forget the model i'll look it up when im on my computer....i have yet to play any games on it and have used it for dual moniter but its the same as the ati card that was in it (128mb)

but if i had the money i would get something from alienware hands down
i had one before and was amazed with it but it was quite costly

Well I forgot to mention I meant dual core processors, and also I meant AMD vs. Intel. With the AMD processor being better. Here is a link http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-10442_7-6389077-1.html

AMD is no better processor then Intel. I get asked that alot. The differnses are minor and they both work with equal speeds.

I've always gone with AMD over intel, especially for gaming. I'm not up to speed on the current gen of processors though. If at all possible you could try building your own computer. Cheaper, better, and you don't have to worry about poor quality parts.

AMD

I too am an AMD fan...had nothing but good luck with em...Ive built 6 AMD machines and had no problems with any of them.. they are also cheaper when compared to similiar intel specs.

My advice is to build your own machine. You get exactly what you want, Its upgradeable and you can spend your money where you feel you need it most without any useless bells and whistles. The build itself is easy. and if you do your homework (my favorite part of the whole process ) you can pretty much take care of any known compatability issues

In the end you dont save a ton of money (software/operating systems are expensive) and you dont have any customer support. But honestly there isnt anything that you cant fix by browsing some forums and finding your own answers.

Yeah, if you're on new egg just build your own. i really like the Intel Core 2 Duo, but i'm sure the equivalent AMD is just as good, its much easier to future proof a machine you build yourself and you get to add what you want and leave out what you don't. i always build me own machines, and other than buying a windows license it really isn't that expensive.
