    In game it runs off the 7970 but when the game loads up initially and detects settings it goes off the IGPU and sets everything to low and then I have to change it.

    Play around with the AMD drivers and I'm sure some where you can select that all programs open with the AMD gpu, my current gigabyte p2532n with the Nvidia GPU has that option in the driver panel.

    Is the screen/laptop thicker with the 120MHz screen?
    Some kind of notice popped up when configuring so I would like to know if the laptop becomes heavier with a 3D screen.
