    RTX cards are not supported in SLi. It can only support 2x nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 in SLi.

    No connector for a mobile version of nvlink exists making it a bit tricky.

    You have to buy from a reseller who works with Prema. One such is HIDEvolution whom I suggest if you live in the USA/Canada.

    What are peoples' views on the PB71RF-G? I'm trying to decide between that, the GE75, and the Strix Scar III but what is really holding me back is the display as everything I have read seems to indicate it is a TN display. I went to go see a PB70 rebadged as a Powerspec 1720 at Micro Center and was really underwhelmed by the screen

    Hello everyone,

    I have decided to buy my little brother a gaming laptop. I already know which one. Aorus 17 XA. I need help from you good folks to help figure out who to buy it from! The only resellers I could find that sold this one were Gentech PC and Hidevolution. Feel free to let me know if there are others!

    GentechPC vs HiDevolution.

    GentechPC Build:

    Free Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut on CPU/GPU upgrade
    Free 30 Day No Dead Pixel Warranty
    Free Fujipoly Ultra Extreme Thermal Pads
    Free RGB Laser Gaming Mouse & Laptop Cooler with 4 fan ( cooler probably won't fit the Aorus )
    9th Gen Intel Coffee Lake Core i7-9750H
    nVidia GeForce RTX2070 8GB GDDR6
    16GB DDR4 2666 MHz/PC4 21300 (8G X 2) Dual-Channel
    512GB PCIe NVMe Gen-3 4X Lanes 32Gb/s
    Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 802.11 2.4Ghz/5.0Ghz Dual-Band Bluetooth 5.0
    Clean Windows Installation, no bloatwares, BIOS update and drivers optimization
    2 Year Parts / Life-time GenTech PC Labor Warranty, Lifetime Toll-Free Technical Support
    Shipping with additional Triple-Boxed protection
    Total: $2557.03

    HiDevolution Build:

    Welp. Their website is having issues right now but prices were close. I liked their OS tuneup option where they can remove all the standard apps built into windows making for a clean lean machine ready to go!

    My main question is who has the better customer service? The laptops are the same, prices are pretty close. The major factor is the human factor. I have zero experience with either of them. My little brother is going to be a heavy user. He is going to be gaming if he is awake or not in school. He is not very techy either. He knows how to go steam and download games and click play and just play. I'm expecting lots of user error troubles. So looking for a company with good after market service. Help! Any comments or suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

    Curious why LPC Digital not considered? They include the Prema BIOS and their prices are very competitive - at least for the P775TM1-G that I've been looking at for awhile. From what I've seen in these forums they seem to have a good reputation.

    On a more general note...maybe more applicable to another thread, but while I'm here...how difficult is it to install your own OS? I mean, I can get a Win 10 Pro key for very cheap on Ebay - and download the OS install to a stick myself. What is the advantage, if any, of having the seller install the OS, aside from the convenience of not having to do it? I could save over $100 by installing the OS myself.
