Hi

Can anyone please tell me which one of the following 2 laptop setups are the best for gaming (WoW, Aion, FF14 etc.)
And why can't the i7 975 extreme have dual gpu's?

Setup 1:
Intel® Core™ i7-975 Extreme, 8MB L3 Cache, 3.33GHz
(12GB) 12288MB, PC3-10660/1333MHz DDR3 - 3 SO-DIMM
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 280M 1GB GDDR3
0 High Performance (Three Hard Drive Configuration) 3x500GB 7200rpm 2.5" SATA-300

Setup 2:
Intel® Core™ i7 920XM 2.0GHz (3.2GHz Turbo Mode, 8MB Cache)
Dual 1GB ATI Radeon™ Mobility HD 4870 in CrossfireX™
8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1333MHz
1TB Raid 0 (2x 500GB 7,200RPM HDDs)

Thanks

Hello and welcome to the forums :)
First of all the reason that we don't have any laptops with dual cards and i7 desktop is the amount of heat it produces and also the battery life will be poor.
Between these 2 laptops the second one will give you better gaming performance because 2 HD 4870Ms perform better than 1 GTX 280M
