My first attempt. Didn't optimize anything other than installing the 7800 XG Mobileforce drivers & did the "optimal overclock" setting which gave me 372/899.
i dont want a 17" notebook, as I have space constraints. really don't want an ATI card because I'd like to dabble with linux.
only 7800gtx laptops are 17", havnt seen a 7800gt 15.4", so im stepping down to a 6800 ultra. Only laptop that ive seen with a 6800 even is the alienware but i want an ultra not the ddr2 version.
our ship just upgraded about 350 of our computers. we were using old dell gx1, probably from the late 90s. they still worked, although very beat up. also have a bunch of old dell laptops that still run. they're pretty stable.
so does the bluetooth VOIP phone come with the laptop? from your review it sounds like yes, from what ive read on the net it sounds like no. the phone would be a sure seller for me if it comes with it. living in japan VOIP would be a much cheaper alternative to call to the states.
Looking for a new laptop. Gaming will be primary use, with internet surfing at second.

*cost... $2000 or less
Any ideas? I like that sager 5720 or whatever it is but it pushes the...
