Buyer be warned: with the 580M you have to use modded drivers and fan control software to speed the fans up, I use HWMonitor Pro and it works VERY WELL. it runs about 77C during gaming, but with AC on, it hits about 73C.
The 580M is basically an under clocked 560 Ti and is excellent for gaming, and its also the same GPU as the rebadged 675M, so if you want it with that, its a great gamer!
It also has the 95% color gamut LED screen that's almost true color, and I used this laptop for photo editing, so the newer Alienwares don't have as nice of a screen.

I think my price is very fair for either setup, so it is firm.
I would prefer to keep the 580M and put the original GPU's back in when selling the laptop, but if someone feels comfortable with a modded setup, its really a great price.

I can get 50 FPS in Max Payne 3 with high settings on 1920x1200 with NO AA and tessellation off.
I get 45-50 FPS in Crysis 2 direct x 11 Extreme settings. Never dips below 38 in the INTENSE scenes, I use a custom Autoexec.cfg file that turns off advanced AA effects and most post processing, but I still have FULL explosions, lighting effects, depth of field, objects, high res textures (cuz its a 2GB card) and particles, it looks awesome.
