My uncle works for a hardware and computer store... I ask him for the parts and he gives them to me for very little cost.. Even though NVIDIA doesn't sell their "M" cards to the public I can still get one from my uncle I am thinking of building another laptop with an 8800MGTX card but it will be expensive for the card and my 1.6GHz laptop is still doing fine as I only need it for college...
I am currently working on my desktop project with two 9800gx2 cards.. (in my sig) and after that I may build that 8800MGTX lappy that should be as fast as an alienware m15x I may start the project in time to finish for christmas... still thinking on it..

Aslo.. I have always wanted to take the most piece of junk oldest case I can find and slap super powerful hardware in it and go to a lan party, lol Maybe for kicks I will take my windows 95 case and put my two 9800gx2 in it with the quad core and post it up here.. "this crappy pc owns yours", lmao

lol i thought u were talking to me next time we should quote the person cz we are getting confused

how cheaper is it? i wouldnt think u can save as much as a desktop since laptop hardware are harder to build and they are fragile and no water cooling lol
