Oblivion was especially taxing on the laptop, but I managed to get acceptable performance indoors and outdoors at 1280x800 with medium details. I could probably use higher quality settings if the view distance was lowered a bit.

Question 8600M GT in SLI

Picked up a floor model SLI 8600M GT Toshiba laptop tonight for a steal ($999). However in SLI mode, the dedicated graphics RAM is being recognized as 128M instead of 512M as when it's not in SLI mode. Has anyone experienced this?
