    And even the 485m sli doesnt hammer the 6970's afaik, not too much in it....according to notebookcheck, the 6970's max out all games tested on highest settings with ease....metro and crysis being the obvious exceptions to the rule but they still max that out at over 30fps easily.

    Im not saying that they are the most accurate results/reports in the world and may need to be taken with a pinch of salt but good i reckon for a guide to gpu performance.

    Also, arent 485m sli gonna be one heck of a lot more expensive? - really worth the wait/extra dosh?

    --------------------------------------------

    OP, there are quite a few threads which cover the differences between the 17xR2 and the 18x. Perhaps check out the available info on the 18x and come to a decision which best fits your needs.

    Unless you want the top of the line mobile system from AW and absolutely have to have a SB system with dual 6970's, stick with what you have. Any other config questions can be posted here -

    Only you can decide if this system is best suited for you.
