incorrect, you can get 8700m GT and 8800m GTX/GTS (both in SLI).

You can pickup a xps m1530 with similar specs/features (256mb 8600m GT with DDR3 memory) for £699 atm (1280-800 screen, but thats the best res for a 8600m).. The GX600 has a 512 8600m GT also, but DDR2, if this has DDR2 GFX memory, it will perform worse than the dell system.

Refer to http://www.msimobile.com/nblist.aspx?series=G you'll notice all gx600 models are listed as having "512mb DDR2 VRAM".

http://www.msicomputer.co.uk/index.php?func=prodtmpspec&prod_no=1307&maincat_no=135&cat2_no=&cat3_no=#menu does not even state which type of memory it is, only "512MB VRAM".

The only reference to "DDR3" video memory is on MESH (which don't have a particularly high reputation http://www.bbc.co.uk/consumer/tv_and_radio/watchdog/reports/consumer_goods/consumer_20070502.shtml)

So, as I said previously, it would be advisable to make sure (i.e. contacting them) before purchasing based upon that fact.

PS. anyone interested in the exact difference between DDR2 and DDR3 graphics memory, check out this m1530 review http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Dell-XPS-M1530-Notebook.7295.0.html more specifically this benchmark http://www.notebookcheck.net/typo3temp/pics/b3fb482d3a.jpg

Secondly, that video cards with GDDR3 have first-class performance. The Zepto 6224 W with 8600M GT graphic, but, 512 MB DDR2 VRAM is clearly second.

btw, thanks for calling me a noob.

Rock use Clevo barebones chassis for their high performance machines, any other company also using the same chassis (many others do such as Sager) cand, and many currently are shipping 8800 powered machines. Dell's XPS M1730 is also currently shipping with the option of 8800m.

I'm perhaps missing something but 900 pounds seems a heck of a lot of money for the spec listed above? Also how is this the most powerful gaming machine when it only has an 8600m graphics card? This is nowhere close to the true top performance laptops with 2.8Ghz processors and twin 8800m graphics cards.

forgiven ;-)

btw, mesh are listed as an official MSI notebook partner (meaning mesh will build the MSI notebooks I beleive). so it is entirely possible they are using that spec.

On the other hand, with the 10% dell coupon, you can get a almost identical spec xps m1530 for £640ish. :thumbsup:

yea i noticed, only thing is ive had bad experiences with dell, i was sent 2 faulty machines and ended up having to ask for a refund. Also the dell 1530 has some small build quality issues on [url]www.notebookcheck.net[/url] and only comes with a 1yr guarantee and a 256mb gpu. Other than that i would probably go with dell. BTW whats ur opinion on the rock pegasus 670?, it's another model im considering. ;)

i'm not familiar with that make but the spec and features look good.

ive been looking for other laptops with the 8600m GT and cant find many, Asus make superb quality laptops (both spec, features and build) although I can't find any with the 8600m GT (only 8600m GS).

Another point I would say is the res of the screen, with anything aboe 1280x800, I think the 8600m GT will be stretched in terms of performance, and running lower res on LCDs makes for a sucky image quality so bear in mind when choosing, the 1280 screens seem to be a nice balance for the 3d performance (although obviously a higher res screen is nice for desktop work.).
