  • Serious questions about the Sager NP5791 video card

    Ok, at the moment, I'm rather upset. I've been working for about three months to afford the 5791 with the Nvidia 7950 GTX. That is the configuration I wanted, and I was choosing xoticpc to do my business with because they seemed superior.

    I noticed elsewhere, however, that once the 8800 came out, they discontinued the option to purchase the 7950 in this laptop. I posted on this forum, asking if this was going to be an issue. I was answered by a moderator, whom I assume has knowledge about this, who told me that the 7950 GTX would be available for a long while. This was just a few days ago. I chose to continue saving, hoping I could buy the laptop all at once.

    Well, I check today and notice that option is no longer available. I search through the forum, and notice that other people, who had placed orders a few days ago, and who chose the 7950, are not getting them because they have been in "short supply for a while."

    I'm now wondering if this video card will ever be offered in this laptop again, and if so, when. I would like a real answer this time, preferably by someone who knows what is going on.

    I would love to do my business with Xoticpc, but it is quickly looking that is not a wise choice. I hope someone can reconcile all of this for me.

    When a newer technology is released a older counterpart can become in immediate short supply nearly overnight. (This is all imposed by the MFG)

    When you had asked about this earlier the card was in stock and anticipated supply. Since the recent release of the 8800M the card has become in short supply and will become discontinued.

    This is the nature of the tech industry.... Technology comes and goes...

      Hmm. I wanted the 9750 too, but the 8700 isn't that bad.

        Since you are saving money anyway, the 8800M GTX might be a more future proof choice, seing as how the 8800M GTX is comparable in power with 2x7950GTX , with DirectX10 support

          I've been waiting all year for the 8800M technology.... I also spent two and a half months last summer working for my laptop and trust me the 8800M GTX is going to be well worth the extra money.

            Isnt it better to get one 8800 and just buy another in 2 months when the price chops in half?

              Probably, if your getting a model that supports SLI, but I am getting a single GPU model. Also, I think that the SLI models are still on delay (even if you only want a single card).

                DarkOutlaw49,
                I recently bought a 5791 with a 7950GTX and was considering upgrading to th 8800. I could pay u a premium and we could trade cards? I think this works from a technical standpoint. Logistically it might be tough tho. Let me know if ur interested, could save us both some cash.

                  Too bad it won't work unless you got the NP5791 with the new motherboard.

                    As I understand it only the suspend to memory function will be affected.
                    I am willing to live with that. But am I incorrect?
