Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 ordered today! I got a GREAT deal on this lappy through AAFES website. Total came to $1548 shipped.

It has the 256mb GeForce 6800 Go Ultra. I plan on running all my heavy duty games on it. Don't know what driver version will come with it. Anyone here have experience with this mobile video card?

Thanks,
Dennis

Yea :D Those are removable, funny how small it is compared to the PC. Anyways, use the modded drivers at www.laptopvideo2go.com

Just to give you an idea. My Desktop specs are below, anything cpu bound the desktop wins, anything gpu bound the laptop wins. Very powerful for a laptop or desktop. On the laptop site above there is a tool called Centrino Hardwere Control, great tool lets you lower the voltage on the cpu to give better battery life (2.5 hours vs 2 hours) and is cooler when running.

Overall very impressed, although I spent considerably more than you, happy with my purchase. A great DTR.

And for those who ask, why game on a laptop? I'm part of the silent service, and you cant exactly take a desktop under the water with you for those long deployments at sea.

Only downside, if you could have waited, a go 7800 gtx and possibly an ultra later on is being released soon, the gtx gets about 2000 more points in 3dmark 05
