Hi guys, i am building an area 51 m9750, and i am stuck on the resolution option. I have configured my options so that either way i will spend the same amount, if i go for the higher res, ill lower my hdd space and just up it later. But i have heard sooo many mixed reviews and im lost. Could you guys help me come up wit ha pro/con list? The choices are 1440x900 and 1920x1200. I wante ot figure out what each can do and wat the benefits of each are. I am lookign to have it be useful for the next 3 years or so. idont watch movies, definitely not on laptop. I have games like doom 3 and bioshock sitting around. I dont wantot sacrifice in gaming, which is why i want o decide for sure, and since im throwing down over 2 gs i dont want ot regret anything. PLease help guys and girls, thanks!

PS my gpu is the single geforce 7950, not the dual, but i will be upgrading ot a direct x 10 card, prob the 8800, but def a directx10 card in the near future. Also, if i decide to upgrade and crrently have a single, cani upgrade to a dual card later? The laptop is fully upgradeable by the way.

Better/higher resolutions make games look better. Running higher resolutions though does work your card harder, meaning you could experience lag on newer games when you have high resolution on, but most games should work lag free with a 7950.

It's a laptop? You can't upgrade the graphics in a laptop (at least from what I know). Maybe if you could send it to company they could upgrade them, but that would probably cost a lot of money. Also, I don't think there is an 8800 for a laptop.

So that we all have a clue what he originally referred to :trumpet: : http://www.alienware.com/product_detail_pa...m_overview.aspx

It did not make sense to me until I decided to be daring :thumbsup: and do a Google on M9750. Amazing how much more enlightened I feel :flowers:.

Dells new XPS gaming rig has a Geforce 8700MGT and a AGEIA PhysX game accelerator. But that one is almost 5 grand.

get the WUXGA, i have a inspiron 9400 w/ a 7950GTX 512MB and the WUXGA screen, i LOVE it. i can max literally ever game on the market and stay above 30FPS, 60+ in most cases. [UT3 on high is going to kill me though]

there is not going to be a 8800 for the M9750, that chassis is aproaching the end of its lifecycle. get the dual 7950's and be done with it.

if you not getting the dual cards, pickup a XPS M1710, best single card gaming laptop, ever.
