Not that you shouldn't get it, but for what Gateway will charge it probably won't be worth it. And besides a good processor a good video is essential for gaming. I suggest the best route to go is build a pc yourself. Trust me, building a pc is a simple process and if you get all you your parts from http://www.newegg.com it comes with great prices & deals, quick delivery and warranties for everything.

But newegg.com has convinced me that building your own could be cheaper; but that depends on certain things.
I had a recent newegg dilemma actually; I wanted to buy some more memory... a gig to be exact. My Inspiron has two DIMM's, one free, so I though a single stick of 1 GB RAM would give me a nice boost to the 512 I have in there now. But newegg only sells 1GB memory for my PC as two 512 sticks. In other words, do your research. Plan out the whole PC, write down the components and the costs and then compare it to a PC you can have custom built on Dell or Gateway's website (I would definitely recommend Dell over Gateway). In any case, if you want to go through the trouble of building your own PC, you might as well go through the cost analysis too.
By the way, I got my RAM from micron's Crucial.com site. I probably paid a little more, $130, but Dell was selling the same thing for $200.
