If its an older gateway its unlikely to have a PCI-e slot unless you have replaced the mobo in the last couple of years. So you wont be able to get much from the high end 7 series if you just have AGP(if that you might not even have it).

First thing when upgrading is check your compatibilty. There is links to system spec software in my sig.
