    We are not that lucky here in the UK, after I get slapped with import tax the price will be double that:)

    I do have a search saved on ebay so yeah keeping a close eye already:)

    I sold the one you sold me to a friend. So this is the last M18xR2 I have left. I've had it for maybe 5 years now?

    Post a pic of yours lol

    I'm looking at Dell Precision M4800/M4700 & M6800 right now. Idk why I wanna own one again LOL

    Bro your pic doesn't show up for me, on my mobile, both Dolphin and Firefox. But I assume it's pretty well up :)

    Mine also still is in a good condition, first hand from Jan. 2012, used it pretty heavily for about 5 years as my DTR, then it got half retired, due to both GPUs giving up one after the other and my purchase and upgrading of a m17x r4.

    Still tried to max out my m18x over the time, favouring the 780m SLI over 880m, only thing missing is 1866 MHz RAM, which I purchased but not built in yet.

    How much of a performance gain is to be expected from these higher clocked RAM chips? I wannabe max mine out too but want it semi cost effective too:)

    Performance impact is minimal. 1866Mhz for M18xR1 and 2133Mhz for M18xR2

    Yeah not much at all as far as I know, in real life it may be bout 2-4% over 1600 and 3-6% over 1333, not really worth it at all, but I was just in the mood.

    Ok not worth the hassle then (at least the stage of upgrades I am at now) as I reckon they will be quite a bit more expensive.

    Indeed, the faster the speed the more expensive they tend to be.

    I guess 4.2Ghz on a 3920XM isn't enough to beat a 6700HQ. Although that will be an easy victory at 4.4Ghz. :D
