Well I installed the 9700 with ease ran my first 3dmark and got 3381 3dmark05 1331 out of the box. With the NV5600 my 3dmark score was 2513 with over clocking.

I am not holding my breath for a 9800 but would be pleasently suprised to get one. I would GLADLY pay for a motherboard upgrade that would extend the life of my laptop. Especially if there were other options associated with that... like a new P4 chip or an AMD 64 based option.
