I was playing Far Cry on it earlier and it was a blast.

The iXPS Gen 2 totally destroyed my home system in terms of speed - it manhandled the game!!
Using the Nvidia 'Coolbits' registry entry, i went to the 'frequency settings' page on the Nvidia control panel. I selected manual settings and it found 500/600 (500 core/1.2G memory) as the optimal overclocked value. That probably means the core speed is set to around 425/500 as default (I am guessing)
I would also be VERY surprised if it is not GDDR3 memory on the card, GDDR3 runs cooler and uses less power than DDR1 and i don't think GDDR1/2 can reach those speeds anyway.
What you have read about the lights on the sides/cover of the iXPS Gen 2 is true - it can be controlled via a control panel on the windows desktop and is pretty impressive (I think so anyway!), and would look great at a lanparty.
It will also come with three free A4 picture covers that can be used on the top lid of the laptop, there is a CSI game one (Dell have a deal with the CSI makers, that's why you see them use a lot of Dell stuff), but i forget the rest.
The only downside is finding the money for it! :-)
