What does the PhysX 100M mean in your sig? Does it have built in memory?

Hey pretzelx, I've been having similar problems with my e1705 (though not nearly as bad or as long as you've been having them). I get random lines across the screen, blue screens, artifacts.
First visit, the dell technician replaced my video card.
Second visit, video card, lcd, motherboard
Third, sent it in to the repair depot (they're the most incompetent fools I've seen, they simply replaced my vid card AGAIN)
I finally told them after going through this for a month, I just wanted a system replacement. Its been about a week now that I've been waiting. I called tech support up again today, and they informed me that it could take 21 days. I tried to push them to speed up the process, but they only said that they would send an email to try to expidite my pending system replacement request.
I've also tried asking them what system I'll be receiving. Until today, I've just been told "equal or better," but the rep I talked to today told me I would probably be getting a refurbished e1705 with an updated video card (i had the 7800 go). She said that she would give me a status update on my pending replacement request on thursday.
I wouldn't mind leveraging support to get me a 1730 , but I just don't know how to go about it from this point.
Any tips pretzel, mcfly, or the others who've had similar experience? Congrats on your systems btw, I'm very jealous .
My laptop should be here tomorrow. I'll post to let everyone know how its working after I get it all formatted and updated and some games installed.
I went out and bought UT3 and COD4 for some fresh online action. I'll do some benchmarks.
How do I benchmark COD4?
And UT3, I assume is like UT2004, just run the benchmark app.
