erm, i can put any 65 nm c2d or c2q in there. 6750 or q6600 is what im thinking(the cost/performance ratio gain from 6750 to penryn is negligible). second the 8800m gts is closer in performance to a 8600 as it only has 64 stream proccesors as opposed to the 8800m gtxs 96(although same clocks). I can use ddr2 800 RAM and lastly I can use a PSU as opposed to a cell battery and have the monitor wired directly into the PSU. Do build a laptop of comparable power for what I want im looking at spending over 3 grand where as I can build this rig for about 2. CyberDruid is going to be putting it all together and hes even gonna slap on a bluetooth wireless laser projection keyboard. its gonna be dopealicious
my only concern is that I heard there was a bug that cant be software fixed. It has something to do with the geometry calculations and rendering being a little off
Now as for the 8800gts, its leagues ahead of the 8600 lol. The 64 stream processors dont mean a thing if you look at the 9600gt it has the same amount but its only about 15% below the 8800gt. I read somewhere that the 8800m gts is about the same power of the G80 GTS 320mb.
All i know is its a beast and can handle any game i throw at it. Im play UT3 max settings no problem, source games run without a hitch as expected, and the Crysis demo i can max out at 1280x1024 (although without AA).
Anyway i see your ready to spend a lot of money but good luck, it looks like your about to build one badass laptop .
