The back of the system is fairly plain. The power supply is installed in the top of the case. Looking at the I/O panel, we see PS/2 keyboard and mouse connectors, six USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet Jack and three audio jacks. There is a video out connector on the motherboard but it has been capped off. The video card outputs to DVI, HDMI and VGA.

The right side panel is solid black and features the Windows Product Key sticker as well as a specifications sticker from Gateway. The FX logo has been imprinted into the side panel which adds a nice subtle touch to an otherwise plain panel.

On the top / front bezel of the chassis we find an integrated card reader with support for xD, CF, Micro SD, SD / MMC and MS / MS Pro, a Photo Frame button, two USB 2.0 ports and headphone / microphone jacks. The hard drive activity LED is also on the front bezel but is hard to see in the photo.

On top of the case is a quick backup button, power button and sleep button. The switch to turn the red case lighting on / off is located around the power button - the silver knob shown above. Looking further back we see two extra USB 2.0 ports and a flip-up storage area.

Let's move ahead and have a look at the inside of the Gateway FX.
