        You seem hell bent on a ASUS so just buy a G2SG-A1 with all upgrades, end of debate, It has one of the most powerful cards you will find outside of a SAGER. It still has moderate amount of gaming ability but stress the moderate.

        So seeing as you dont want a Sager and ASUS is what you think looks cool and it means so much to you. ASUS

          For modern programming IDE's I highly recommend 4 gigs of ram and Vista. You'll also want to consider dual-booting to test on both 32 and 64-bit platforms. (so order 64-bit and fix it up do dual boot later)

          Visual Studio works great under Vista and there is a nice debugger attach option when any app crashes.

          If you're doing Java on Eclipse you absolutely need 4 gigs of ram (stick with Java 1.6u3 until they fix the 64-bit bugs...)

          The 9262 is my choice, but shipping + upgrades will put it slightly above your budget I think.
