Thanks for the input, I am a very big Nvidia fan, so a AMD card wouldnt be the right choice for me I would think

Yes thats true as the 600 is a little too much for the performance difference and second the 120hz monitor is free with the GTX 880m, but for me i would go for a single powerful GPU before picking two slower cards as an SLI configuration has its problems with some games.


Single GTX 880m: P8514 3D Mark11

Dual GTX 880m: P15325 3D Mark11

Single GTX 870m: P6532 3D Mark 11

Dual GTX 870m: P11368 3D Mark11

The difference between the a single 880m and SLI 870m is around 38% so an overclock on a single 880m will bring it to even a lower percentage which will make a single 880m better balanced option and also its up gradable in the future to dual 880m

Yeah, after respecing the Sager with 880m's I can get it sub $3k which I feel is a really good deal

Also, if the SLI 880m's is about 780Ti Performance, what would SLI 870m's be in performance, a 770?

Hmm, Im really leaning towards the 880m SLI, Im guessing if I'm careful I can get upwards of 4 hours battery if just sitting in class browsing and taking notes with backlight on the keyboard off and the screen was dim. And hopefully Nvidia will add more support for battery boost

Hmm, Now thinking about it, I am thinking the MSI may still be an option. I would like some input if Raid 0 in a laptop is reliable, because if so. I would probably get the GS70 with the stock config and just customize it a bit and it would be cheaper than the Sager with the SLI 880m's and the battery would be better. Since all my friends and I agree that weight isnt an issue. Now the issue is battery life and performance to battery life. I am guessing I was thinking that I would need more power than I would actually need. I realize this wont replace my desktop and this is just a portable solution and I should be fine with turning down some settings to get better FPS if need be.

So, thoughts?

Those SLI 880m's are actually like 10% more powerful than my 780 ti. Way more power than you need for 1080P. Sure it will future proof it, but its also a bit of a splurge.


While weight might not be an issue it is nice to have a small laptop. I've had a alienware m17x R1 that was 12 lbs and i can tell you, i did not like moving that. While i know it isn't an option i have a razer blade 14 2013 and it is awesome to carry around. I would strongly consider the GS70 as the first choice if you can tolerate GTX 660 Ti like fps at 1080P. I don't think you need GTX 780 Ti performance on a mobile laptop. While it would be nice i can't see why you would need 140 fps in titanfall.

While weight might not be an issue it is nice to have a small laptop. I've had a alienware m17x R1 that was 12 lbs and i can tell you, i did not like moving that. While i know it isn't an option i have a razer blade 14 2013 and it is awesome to carry around. I would strongly consider the GS70 as the first choice if you can tolerate GTX 660 Ti like fps at 1080P. I don't think you need GTX 780 Ti performance on a mobile laptop. While it would be nice i can't see why you would need 140 fps in titanfall.
Eh true I guess, but that 120Hz screen is a nice benefit, even if I wont be using it alot. Also another option is a "upgradeable" Sager so I could get a 870m right now and down the road get a 880m or even a 900m/1000m or whatever they will be called by then. I am also now considering a 15in Sager after playing some Neverwinter Nights 2 on my current laptop (all be it at low and at 1366x768 with 30ish FPS lol) Thoughts? Or should I just consider the GS70 or a 17in Sager?

EDIT: Forgot to mention I would probably be fine with a 660Ti equivalent performance. And for portability I would be fine turning down some settings for more FPS

Well heres some benchmarks for comparision.

The GTX 870m will pull 65 FPS in witcher 2 with ubersampling off at 1920x1200:

The SLI GTX 880m's would pull over 120 FPS.

Upgradeable sagers are nice. I had a 8130HM that i put a 2920xm and a 7970m in and it rocked. But with the way laptops are going, i expect you will see less modular video cards especially with the 870m's being soldered now. Most companies will likely solder GPU's in the coming years because the laptops will be thinner, and it will force you to buy a whole new one.

Note: I am trying to provide you with information so that you can make the decision. I do not want to make it for you.
