As it is, the laptop is a good deal. However, adding the second video card, while it will improve performance quite a bit, will add considerable heat and power consumption.

Power consumption I am not so worried about as it will be plugged into AC 90% of the time it is in use. If the extra heat is going to reduce its logevity however that would be a concern.

Maybe I am better off just to stick with the one video card.
