    Default Clevo x7200- Intel x58 board

    Since it will be a minimum of 5 weeks waiting for a sandy fix, I am exploring other options. Just can't take it. The following is close to what I want:





    • CLEVO X7200/GF100/FHD Core i7 Notebook Barebone, Intel® X58, 17.3" Full HD LED Glossy, PCIe x16 MXM-III Discrete Graphics
    • INTEL Core™ i7-950 Quad-Core 3.06GHz, LGA1366, 4.8 GT/s QPI, 8MB L3 Cache, 45nm, 130W, EM64T EIST VT XD, Retail
    • NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 480M 2GB GDDR5 Mobile Graphics Card for X7200
    • CORSAIR 6GB (3 x 2G PC3-10600 DDR3 1333MHz SDRAM SODIMM, CL9, Non-ECC
    • OCZ 100GB Vertex 2 SSD, MLC SandForce SF-1200, 285/275 MB/s, 2.5-Inch, SATA 3 Gb/s, Retail
    • WESTERN DIGITAL 500GB Scorpio® Black™ WD5000BEKT, 7200-RPM, 16MB cache, 2.5-Inch, SATA 3 Gb/s, OEM
    • CLEVO Blu-Ray Reader and Super-Multi DVD±RW Optical Drive
    • NETWORK Built-in 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet LAN Card
    • INTEL Centrino® Ultimate-N 6200 Wireless Card, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, 11/54/300 Mbps, Internal PCIe Half Mini Card

    The items in red are options I changed. This distributor has multiple options for video, hdd/ssd. and ram. So, a coupe questions:

    Video- 460m x2 ($212 option) in sli or 480m single? ($375 option) The 485m is available @ $493 bucks.
    Primary hdd- They have the Vertex 2 and the Agility 2. The Agility 2 is $6 dollars higher.
    Ram- Is 6gb enough? 3gb is standard. I felt like 6 would be enough for my use.

    So, what you guys think?

    It's worth the wait, unless you have the cash to buy both.

    Lol, no can't get both. Its now at the point of needing a system. I know the second generation processors are better. But five of us have been sharing this one laptop for several months now (5). For my sanity, I will make the sacrifice. Add in the fact that some games are just not playable on this lil Toshiba. To much lag.

    The specs I picked above are more than I need for the foreseeable future. To bad I can't use a desktop system...

    Ok, I decided to go with an Asus branded system. Saved about a grand and got a decent rig. Should be here in a few days. I'll post the specs in my profile.

    Thanks to everyone for all the help and patience.

    Have I said you guys rock? You do.

    Good choice, ASUS has a few nice gaming laptops.

    Question Jaxy: what about using a wireless keyboard and mouse for a desktop system? Or does the system need to be totally portable so it can be used anywhere in the house?

    Sky,
    Wireless could work if I were to go to a desktop at some point. I would have to make some furniture modifications. Biggest obstacle would be the monitor. That would be a problem. I'm not sure what is available for my situation.
