Currently own a Dell XPS m170 and I have been looking to upgrade since January of this year. It has now become crucnh time for me as I am getting ready to deploy to Iraq in June, and I would like to get a system to take with me. I was looking at the Dell XPS m1730 and the Alienware m15x, but it seems that both are overpriced compared to what sager has to offer, so I have decided to purchase my fisrt Sager after a long series of Dells from XoticPC. My dileema is trying to choose between the 9262 and the 5793. My upper limit is about $4000, and I was able to configure a very nice 9262 for right around there, but I was also able to configure a maxed out 5793 for right around $3200. I prefer the looks and size of the 5793 and I am slightly concerned with overheating and system reliability in the 9262, but it is hard to argue the performance gains of the 9262. I only play RTS on my computers as I reserve the FPS to my XBox, mainly titles such as, Ceasar IV, Imperium Romanum, Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, the entire C&C series, Waqrcraft III, Suprememe Commander and StarCraft II when it comes out. Otherwise, I just use my systems for office work, movie viewing and internet. I don't know if I can justify the additional $800 for quad core and SLi when the dou core and single 8800 might suffice. Any comments, suggestions or help regarding these two systems is appreciated. Thanks all.
