SG: Gateway FX6800-05 review : Intel 80GB SSD, i7 940, plus ATI 4870 X2's gaming rig

Slash Gear writes: "Gateway's FX6800-01e was the first i7, Nehalem, Quad-Core processor PC we tested, and its performance boost over the previous Core 2 architecture was obvious. That was the company's lowest FX-series rig with Nehalem/Bloomfield; today we have the highest model in the FX-series, the FX-6800-05 desktop, to review. Gateway's ultimate gaming rig sports high end components built upon the Intel's i7-940 2.93Ghz, ATI Radeon 4870 X2 graphics, 6GB of DDR3 memory, and last but by no means least, an ultra-fast Intel X25-M 80GB SSD. All that will cost you around $3000 retail, so the big question is whether this Gateway is worth the asking price?"

The color scheme doesn't look that awful from the pictures, i am more worry about the quirky hardware designs. This is not the first time i read about the FX6800 series with negative comments, anyone has one? what's ya thought? are the latch and hidden card readers that bad?
