    Did single 5870s have the same vbios as the one on the crossfire setup?

    Good question. I wonder if flashing the single GPU vbios to the crossfire would work. If they were differant than probably not, but I'd give it a shot if I had my system. Whats to lose?

    It should be as low as 9-10 secs, I doubt it will go any lower. On the other hand you have the 920XM which will give you the advantage

    EDD on dells page is 15 July but the system already shipped so I should have it in the next week or so. I go home on leave though in a weekand a half so I'm hoping it gets here before than. Also have the 940 CPU on the way, but I don't think that will make it here before I go home. It will however be waiting for me when I get back so I should have some 940/5870 scores up in mid July. But I already have the 920 so I'll definately get some scores up.

    Mine is sitting off next to me. :p

    My 920XM is still in my Asus. I can pull it today.

    Edit: OK, I swapped procs but Windows was corrupt after that. I'm reinstalling stuff now.

    Edit2: Stock 3DMark06 was 19.1K.
