    Something with the cmos. It wasn't holding the time settings. Sent it to depot and they made a mess with my laptop.

    Mine has a very tiny area where the paint came of and dell refused to replaced the part. They are sending me a new system which does not make any sense...

    Not bad at all! My 7970M Xfire gets 9929 stock, and 10728 with a mild OC. Max I've seen is 12K for 7970 Crossfire so far, but I have a feeling the 680Ms will be able to OC more and get higher.

    EDIT: It does appear that my GPU score is a bit higher.

    So, the exact same performance. Was hoping $500 extra bought more than just working drivers.

    For me it was $1068 D:

    But, I'm happy with those results. Not ecstatic. Just pleased..Well now that I think about it, $1000 is a bit much just for driver support. But honestly AMD has failed big time with the 7970's. I don't see how you can manufacture and release a product that doesn't work.

    I'm sure the 680m will improve with driver updates. If you look at a comparison of the single cards you can see that the 7970m performs better in a few games and I guess that depends on how the game was developed, and the drivers etc.

    Oh well. I'm very happy that I don't have to worry about driver issues with nvidia, and I'm looking forward to my first alienware!

    Just out of curiosity? Who received the machine? I wanna see some pictures and maybe some gameplay

    Fermi is receiving performance improvements to this very day, I'm sure Kepler will see them 2 years ahead as well.
