    Area 51 m9750 vs. Unreal 3

    So I'm just about to buy my first gaming laptop ever. As the subject suggests, I'm getting an alienware Area 51 m9750. Several reasons why, several being price, hardware, so on so forth. How does Unreal run on this machine? If anyone has one and can let me know how this beast handles Unreal 3 (as I plan on getting it the day I get my new toy) I'd appreciate your input. Thanks

        I think it should not be a problem... Your system is better then mine (except CPU) and I play UT3 with constant 60 FPS (VSync )

        Hope I could help.

          Lol.

          Hey, I'm using an m9750 right now with 2 7950 GTX's in SLI, 2 gigs of ram, Windows XP, and a 2.16 C2D Processor running at 1440x900. Expect the game to run, but please enjoy the FPS lag you will get when you die by a rocket, a flak cannon, a shock core, or anything that makes you explode, or anything that does explode. I'm not talking a small dip in frames either, I'm talking about going from a smooth 50-60 frames per second, to about 15-20 frames per second for 15 seconds. If you want to play UT3, don't even bother playing it on a laptop with SLI, buy the m15x from Alienware instead. I made the mistake of believing this thing could handle UT3, I don't want you to go through the same thing. To be fair though, it seems as though every SLI laptop is having troubles with this game, I can run every other game fine.
