    Well, all I can say is that I hope and pray it is poor quality of AMD drivers because the only alternative left is the poor quality of the AMD hardware. I don't believe the latter is true, but I'm living out the perdition of the former... one day at a time. ;)

    Back on topic, have we seen anyone with GTX 680M SLI poking around the forums yet?

    My RMA'd 7970M CF R2 disagrees with you.

    This is not the AMD driver problems/crashes/BSOD's thread, we already have a lot of big threads for that (obviously)... keep amd problems away from Nvidia threads, its getting depressing.

    AMD 7970M issues surfacing in an NVIDIA 680M thread kind of reinforces that NVIDIA fans have a reasonable basis for their preference, don't you think?

    I believe we'll see our first on Monday, then a few of us getting ours on Tuesday...

    Whether or not we get the correct power supply is still in the air, so may be later in the week before we get non-throttled benchmark numbers...

    My rep knows I should get the 330w and he thinks I will. He told me if I should get the wrong one he'd get me the right one out immediately. I told him since he knows what I should get to please do everything in his power to make sure the right one ships out with the m18x.

    What I didn't tell him is that I have my tin-snips ready and he'll soon be missing a pinky if I get the wrong power adapter. :)

    There are still reps out there that think the 240 watt adapter is the right one for the sli nVidia 680's so how are you to convince the reps that they need to include the right adapter with the computer? Will Alienware employees put in the right adapter or will they follow what is on the invoice? I am sure they will follow what is listed on the invoice and people are going to get the wrong adapter.

    I suspected they were full of baloney.
