Hello, I'm planning on buying an Alienware m17x soon, for work and gaming on the side. Currently the only game I'd get for it is the new Final Fantasy MMO that just came out. Everything I put on it is fine, but the main problem i've been reading is with the video cards. So my real question is, would it be best going with the CrossfireX™ 1GB GDDR5 ATI Radeon™ Mobility HD 5870 or SLI® 1GB GDDR3 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 285M that they include in the building process.

Hello and welcome to the forums 5870 is more powerful than GTX 285,so 2 5870s will give you a better performance.
