    Hi Guys,

    Just been speaking with my very good rep and friend. He has told me that the M18x is now available to order with the above gpu's......they arent live on Dell UK yet but he has pricing for them as follows: (pricing is the upgrade cost over base gpu configuration). If you wish to use my rep who does very good deals, let me know.

    For you guys in the US and other countries, I am sure they may be available too as some people have already been discussing non-website prices with chat reps etc etc....

    Nvidia GTX 580m Sli is £859 exc VAT so total cost around £1,075.00

    AMD 6990m Crossfire is £384 exc VAT so total cost around £480.00

    These are obviously UK figures so anyone wishing to order with either can shoot me a PM and I can get you in touch mith my rep if you like (for UK & Ireland Residents only im afraid)....I am pretty sure that if you want to order with the above, he can also do a great deal overall, with regards to the total system cost.

    Anyway guys, thought I would let you know of their availability....finally, we know how much they are gonna cost in the UK and that both are available....so go get 'em !!!!!

    Cheers
    Stevie.:D

    Great news that the 6990m is available. It shall provide good competition to the 580m. Hope to see benchmarks of the two soon.

    Just confirmed my order, with this top bloke from dell. Cannot wait to get my machine now. I wanted the fastest card available but the price difference between the two is ridiculous, so i just jumped in and went for the 6990. I just hope there isn't a big performance diff between the 580 and the 6990 as we have no banches on the 6990 as off yet.

    What i couldn't get my head around Stevie was the fact the 6990m (£480) was cheaper than the 6970m (£490)...It best not be slower i won't be happy :D

    You can sell the 6970s and get the 6990s when available. I wouldn't worry though. You are looking at 5-10% difference in gaming and that won't make much impact at all with any games coming out anytime soon. Upgrading will be way too expensive and not worth marginal increases. Unless you are tyring to figure out a way to send your system back but I am against that but that is only my value. I mean that is a price someone pays for technology.

    Some people may wait for the 6990s but you have had the pleasure of gaming on the most powerful rig for the past 30 days...surely that has some price/value in and of itself. Just enjoy your system!
