Flag, there's really no way to tell how far the 4400+ will go with the 590SLI chipset. The best way to find out is to start overclocking. What 4400+ are you running(core)? I'm assuming the motherboard in your Gateway is the standard ATX size. If that is the case then it should fit. Check and make sure there is nothing proprietary with the case that would cause difficulties when installing the motherboard. Is it a mid-tower case?
I would also make sure the power supply that came with the Gateway can provide sufficient power to each component.
Here's a youtube video that may provide some assistance with the cpu install:
