    My questions is:

    Are Killer Wireless and the Wireless HD Transmitter coming back as options?

    Not sure about the Killer Wireless NIC but it looks like they are just out of stock on the Wireless HD Transmitter so it should show up again in the future.

    With the SSD and HDD's. I could save up for a SSD, but it would take about a month longer of waiting, (or 4 weeks), but what I'm concerned about is 'moving parts' and how the SSD is much more safer (not to mention the holy grail of speed).

    Would it be worth saving for the SSD in my config or should I get a HDD? Or a hybrid?

    Hi NBR,

    Please help me pick out parts for my future Alienware M18x.
    This is what I have in mind so far. Please note that I'am a hard-core pc gaming but I also do video-editing as a hobby.

    Quick question:
    -Is it worth upgrading the i7 3610QM to i7-3720QM?
    -RED OR BLACK FINISH? LOL
    -How many DIMM slot is in the M18x? I have and extra x2 4GB DDR3 1600mhz
    -How many HDD does the M18x can carry? (I have an extra 250GB Intel 510 SSD)

    Budget: $3,500.00 USD (My tax return my wife doesn't know about :D )

    *CPU - i7-3720QM
    *RAM - 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1600MHz (Is this x2 4GB?)
    *GPU - x2 AMD 7970m Crossfire (When it comes out)
    *HDD - x1 256GB SSD

    Yes

    -RED OR BLACK FINISH? LOL


    Red all the way! unless you prefer colour contrast then I'd pick black, which is what I did

    -How many DIMM slot is in the M18x? I have and extra x2 4GB DDR3 1600mhz


    4

    -How many HDD does the M18x can carry? (I have an extra 250GB Intel 510 SSD)


    M18x R1 --2 in the caddy and 1 can be placed where the ODD is so, 3 potentially

    M18x R2 --3 in the caddy and 1 mSATA? and one can be placed where the ODD is so, 5 potentially?
