Your memory fails you ... 79xx series didn't come out until 2005 ... late 2005 even

Back in '03 we were rocking like ATI 9700 Pro's

My memory is just fine, thank you very much. My finger accuracy is however questionable.

Neither. Look at a clevo system if your spending that much. Get a pair of 6970s and a full 1080 or higher screen. Not the garbage 900 on alienware

Edit: failed to read already ordered

Emm no Nvidia SLI runs hotter than a HD 5870 and choose the HD5870 CF because its just better and has DX11
post #28 of 29
Laptop Screen 17 inch UltraSharp WXGA+ (1440x900) LCD Display

For a single Mobility HD5870 that res is a bit low, for Crossfire it is really low as you could actually do 1080p sort of consistently. That is a more than decent price for just CF of those cards but you got the 840QM and it's extra 2MB of cache to boot.

If you haven't jumped on it yet... go. jump. now.
