How the hell did they get a 5870 into a laptop? Must be juiced up considerably, and its a fairly large graphics card too. Costs about £300 for the gfx card alone here, at the least. I imagine that laptop also doubles up as a portable heater lol.

To go off at a tangent, does WoW support crossfire? I'm personally still hoping to buy a solid state drive and waiting for the 6xxx series but it could be better to settle for 2x 5750's in a crossfire for the next year or so.

I think you got too deep into nerdy talk. To keep it very simple - CPU, GPU, RAM - doesnt really matter here, unless you are using something from museum...

Wanna improve your game performance?

1. Get really fast internet connection, not just download, also check your providers upload.
2. Get really fast harddrive - 10k rpm disk if you lack money, SSD disk if you dont
3. Install 64bit OS, buy 8GB RAM, disable OS swap file.

harddrive is your slowest component so make your system work with it as less as possible by not using swap.

My aim is to get an SSD for the OS + WoW, FM and one or two other games I play frequently, then get 2 x 250GB 7.2k RPM's in a RAID0 as the main storage for my PC. Finances are the limiting factor, its cheapest to get a standard RAID0 for now going with a second HDD then it gives me time to toy around with what SSD to get.

Trump has hit the nail on the head there though.

It's good to share the knowledge, lets just hope with our pooled thoughts and contributions Neph ends up with a good deal she still hasn't clarified what like long-term role this laptop has to play in her life though lol.
