SOURCE: computer manuel for gateway DX4860-UB32P

Gateway Support > Gateway DX4860 series of Desktop PC's > Main Support page,

On this page click on the User Guides tab.

(Drivers, BIOS, Applications, Patches, Support Documents, Top Answers, User Guides)

Then on Generic User Guide.

Other than that you may be referring to a MOTHERBOARD MANUAL. Not available, however;

Click on Specifications;

1) All the Processor options listed, use the same processor socket;
the LGA 1155,

2) Motherboard has an Intel H67 motherboard chipset,

C) Ram Memory;
Up to 16GB's of DDR3 Sdram, that operates at a frequency rate ('Speed'), of 1333MegaHertz.

4GB ram memory modules ('Stick') in the four ram memory slots, is 16GB.

However NOT a good idea.

With the Nehalem architecture you NEED to use 3 ram memory modules, (The Sandy Bridge architecture is an evolution of the Nehalem architecture),

From the above,

"The memory controller integrated on Nehalem-based processors, provides three memory channels, i.e., it is capable of accessing three memory modules at the same time, IN PARALLEL, in order to improve performance.

In THEORY triple-channel architecture provides a 50 PERCENT increase of available bandwidth, compared to a dual channel architecture running at the same clock rate."

The above is from Gabriel Torres, author.

From me;
Note the words used, "In THEORY".

From extensive testing by another website, it was found long ago, that dual channel architecture does NOT increase ram memory performance by much.

THEORY was that using two LIKE ram memory modules, would increase ram memory performance up to 30 PERCENT.

From extensive testing, (MANY motherboards, processors, and ram memory modules), and another website, it was found the actual increase is more like ONE to TWO percent.


In otherwords looks good on PAPER.

(Be aware that Gabriel knows it is theory also. That is why it is stated as T-H-E-O-R-Y. Gabriel is VERY INTELLIGENT. The theory stated is from Intel, not Gabriel.
Gabriel, as I do also, knows it is just ON PAPER. Doesn't really work that way in reality)

Read on down through the article from this intelligent person, and you will find out more, about why you should use THREE ram memory modules, in comparison to using FOUR, in all four ram memory module slots.
{ Luv ya Gabriel! You are THE tech! }

D) Graphics: Intel HD Graphics,

Since all of the Intel Core i processors listed, use the Sandy Bridge architecture, the Intel HD Graphics, is HD Graphics 2000,
(DESKTOP processors),

It's just Integrated Graphics, anyway.
(Integrated graphics is also known as OnBoard graphics.
ON the motherBOARD)

There is a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot, however.
A PCI-Express graphics card can be used.

TWO things;
1) I would use a PCI-Express 2.0 graphics card, and not a PCI-Express 2.1, or 3.0 graphics card.

2) The Power Supply is 300 Watts. BETTER, to bump it up to an economical, reliable 600 Watt unit, { It is an ATX unit }, if you are going to use a graphics card.

{ Does indicate 500 Watts full power, but this is FULL power, and may also be another option, than the 300 Watt Non-PFC unit.
A different power supply, option.

It is better to have a power supply, that can put out at LEAST 10 percent more power, than what is needed. Power supply lasts longer as it doesn't have to strain }

Just ONE example,

{Be aware that a computer will ONLY use the power it needs, and NO MORE. Just because you have a 600 Watt power supply, does NOT mean the computer will use 600 Watts all of the time.

Surfing the internet? About 100 Watts.
Playing an intensive game? 600 Watts }
