Hi, I am about to purchase a gaming laptop from sager but I am stuck between which one to get I ether want to get the NP8180 With SLI GTX 560ms or a NP8170 With a Single Radeon 6990m. Does anyone know the performance of these two mobile cards and if so which one should i go with. And if anyone of you guys have owned a Sager before what temperature are these laptops going to be hitting.
The 6990 is quite a bit faster, but several places have noted that it has heat issues. While the 560 is slower, it is fast enough for most everything and runs cooler. They do have a 580m option as well. I have had Sagers before and really liked them. One of my kids took my last one off to college a couple years ago and it still runs fine.
Just be aware that gaming laptops have horrible battery life, and will run warmer than regular ones is all.
