u will be able to play both of them fairly well, crysis probably not on high (with good fps) though. maybe u should wait a while since the 8800m card is fairly new and is probably way overpriced at the moment to save a few bucks or maybe even go for an sli system

how the heck did you go about getting 3k for a gaming system!!

haha whats the trick? - Sounds aweosme to me mate :p  Would kick my desktop out of the water (just about). I think you would have no probs cod4 on high and POSSIBLY crysis.

I'm glad u listened to what i have told u about the laptops and i am sure u will enjoy it, its a solid laptop and u wont have any problems running those games
also u have the chance of adding the second 8800M GTX later :)

The only thing I'd question about that laptop is the 5400 rpm drive, it'll be your main bottleneck. I'd suggest upgrading to a 7200 rpm if you can afford that (considering the 3 grand...:p )

That's what I did with the lappy in my sig. Granted I didn't use school money for it...

Same here. Gaming is definitely involved, but come on, I still need something to do Word on. And my room mate's tiny 14.1 inch HP just won't cut it! :D
