So those of you with a 9400/X1400 or integrated and want a 9400/7900 or M1710 you have a chance still to return you laptops.

Holding a card back and pushing it with overclocks can be damaging, so I want to make sure we're not all going to pay 400-500$ for video upgrades and burn them out within a year.

The cooler running rev. 7800GTX is intriguing.
I paid $$$ for the laptop, so I see myself keeping it and fooling with the video.
You thinking the new 7800GTX is my best choice? 7900GTX requires modding to mount?
- Thanks .
