    Whenever I feel the need to explain a wide spread problem I gather my reference material online(web pages, documentation, forum etc...), then I show the Dell/Alienware Agent with AlienContact, so that there is NO confusion. The OSD problem is difficult to show because the AlienContact remote session disables Aero by default.

    Nigel - I'm not seeing the update you're speaking of on the Dell Support site for the M18x. Can you please post a link? The newest one I see is dated way back in May (5/25/2011 - 15.21.13.64.2342, A02) and I doubt that is the one you are referring to.

    Nice!! Charles P. Jefferies really helped us with getting the word out.

    Xeneize, I'm getting my M18x w/580M SLI soon. I need your help with setting up the 580M SLI for best performance. I also need your help with 580M SLI throttling awareness/resolution. +rep in advance.

    I was debating between the CF and SLI but after comparing a few M18x's, decided to stay with the RED's 100%. But it's good to see more ppl going for the greens as it will make benching thread more interesting ;)

    Even though I could have "splurged" on the green team, I too elected to stay with AMD....at the end of the day, no way I could justify the added cost/performance ratio....

    That's the thing, from what I've seen so far the CF is slightly more powerful. I know people argue based on a few poor reviews, so I ran my own tests ;) Now, I could exchange my 6990s for 580s for the same price and still decided against it. Also didn't like the high latency of the greens.
