I would say the single 7900GS, because SLI in a laptop, might get a little hot. But if you're playing games at 1920x1200, rather than 1440x900, then the dual 256mb will be better. Are you going to be doing, some heavy gaming with this one?

If you want a to do some serious gaming, get a desktop and get like....12 8800gtx's


or one would do too. But, laptops arent really known for their hardcore gaming. unless you have some serious cooling capabilities, id stick with the single too. although i know you can cram a 8600gts in a laptop, (i think).

anyways, good luck
