    His overclock is closer to 1ghz (on CPU), GPU core is 400mhz+, insane...

    Yes you need around 1.087v to get that on the core.

    Wow that's quite a push. I would think it would drsmstically reduce component life eh?

    While I agree that an M18x purchase does not automatically qualify for "money wasted", I don't think any of our laptops are outperforming an equally priced desktop built for the same purpose (benchmarking, gaming, etc).

    And you have SonDa5's build incorrect, according to the link it's a 7950CF.

    Thanks, for catching it, Larry. I'll correct the typo.

    Buying equivalent components, it doesn't take a lot of effort to spend as much or even more than the M18x on a good gaming desktop. If you cut corners on quality, you can save a few bucks.

    That sure is a necro. Do you have V-Sync enabled? If so, hilarious too.
