APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Probably by the end of June BUDGET RANGE: (e.g.: USD $150-250) NA

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Movies, Music. I'm just a student and will be gaming on the laptop. Id like to be able to run Skyrim and Mass Effect 3 pretty high when they come out, and also have the card last for at least 3 or 4 years.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Gonna buy a Sager NP8150


PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Probably Xotic

PARTS PREFERENCES: None
OVERCLOCKING: Yes

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080,

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: As you can tell, Im buying the sager NP 8150. I'm almost pretty much settled on the ATI card, because it will run the games I play on at least high, and is $200 cheaper then the 485. However, before I settled, I just wanted some expert opinions, maybe any info I should know about, like if one overheats more or has some faults or other things that aren't show in just numbers. Basically is there any reason at all I should want to spend the extra $200. And as a wildcard, is there any reason I should just go with the stock 560?

Thanks for any help!

485M is faster but 6970M will give you slightly better battery life
