I had my sights set on getting this PC, and I have my money pool ready and today I looked for it online here on futureshop.ca and the computer is nowhere to be found.
Did they stop selling it, or is it a temporary website thing?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Odd. I had signed up for a price watch for this computer when it was still listed on the web site, and I just received a notification today for a drop of $50, down to $1349.99.
Does this mean it's available again?

We still have FX6860-EF10P available - I included the link below; however, this is $1499.99.
With its Intel Core i7-2600 processor and a whopping 16GB DDR3 SDRAM for blazing fast performance, this Gateway desktop can handle anything you throw at it. It's also home to super powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics with 1GB dedicated graphics memory, a Blu-ray player, and 2GB HDD + 128GB SSD, so it offers the best in digital entertainment with incredible speed and ease.

The above link is broken. However ,FS stores are stocking the FX6860, and at 1499. its a good deal if your a MW3 or BF3 gamer and dont want to tinker!. (You cant build one for that price) I bought the FX6800 from FS 2 yrs ago and its still humming. I upgraded the video card to a GTX560Ti and its been a loyal gaming machine.
However be warned, Gateways motherboards are locked, so no overclocking the cpu or ram.
And Im almost positive the SSD ,while large enough for OS and games WILL default to 3gb/s, not 6gb/s.
Theres a spot for SLI or Crossfire (GTX560Ti is a good card) but double check the power supply first.
Me thinks, the motherboard is where they cut their costs. If you run SLI pop the plate in front and put another fan.
Out of the box, it will play any game at ultra levels , But dont expect to see much info about it on Google for a while, I think its made especially for FS. Its a sec gen intel I7 , and 3rd is out now, but I wouldnt wait for a price drop.
Im buying this one if the MB supports 6gb/s for the ssd.
