Default Alienware M17x

So im looking at a Alienware M17x, a ASUS G73, and a Sager 18.4 inch, and i noticed the Alien's have been mentioned to be sold with two 5870's but in customize the maximum appears to be one.

Anyone know if its like buy one later and shove it in?

Thanks, ToXic

I've run into that as well- not sure why there aren't options to customize as advertised. In the end, though, I realized that the ASUS G series were better value anyway- only problem is the "space aged" lame paint jobs on some of them.

Notebookcheck: The Alienware M17x is available now with two HD 5870s in CrossFireX mode

probably not yet, but soon. the price of the upgrade is too steep though.

Would you figure one 5870 is probably ample?
