    But you won't be able to upgrade your gfx to PCI express.

    If you want a radeon 9700 on the cheap, go with the Dell Inspiron 9100. With coupon codes applied, you can get a beast for less that $1400

    GPU cooling (100°C->75°C)* Inspiron 8600 * 1.8ghz Pentium M * 128 MB Radeon 9600 Pro Turbo (337/242 -> 400/300) * 2x256 MB DDR2700 SDRAM * Aquamark 3: 24058 * 3DMark'03: 3404 * 3DMark'01 SE: 13120

    No, it most definitely will not. The size still is not enough to compensate for the amount of heat the desktop pentium 4 produces. The 9100's fan runs all the time, and is very noisy. My 8600's fan only comes on when gaming or doing something really CPU intensive.
