Default Should I go with....

- Dual 512MB NVidia GeForce Go 7900 GS - SLI Enabled
- Dual 256MB NVidia GeForce Go 7900 GS - SLI Enabled
- Single 256MB NVidia GeForce Go 7900 GS

This is for my new Alienware m9700. Tell me and give me thoughts on what I should do. Thanks

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?

sli is overrated, get the single one instead

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

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
