As the title states..... I have ordered my Alienware Amplifier, now the tough part comes in! What GPU to buy. Money is not an issue, so I literally can buy ANY GPU. What are your suggestion? Thanks.

I must say that Performance is important to me. Just because it is the most expensive GPU doesn't mean it's the best.

Well Titan X is only slightly better than the 980 Ti so... maybe the best bang for your buck would be the 980 Ti, I'm unsure about AMD GPUs tho never used them before

I agree. I was looking into the 980Ti or the 390x. Maybe even a Liquid Cooled GTX980Ti. I think I could make it work.

Yes! That is what I am looking at, but the 980Ti. I can't wait long though. I will be deciding and buying next Monday. If I have to pay an Arm and A Leg for it, I don't care.

Wow to pay an arm and leg for it is kinda extreme don't you think? Anyway I was watching some videos and reviews about the graphics amplifier and was wondering if the radiator connected to the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 could replace the fan behind the front panel of the graphics amplifier. If that's possible then it could really fit in there.

EDIT:
This was one of the videos I found that showed the fan

I did some benchmarking using 3DMark11 using the GTX-980Ti, EVGA S.C. I am quite impressed with the score compared to my custom Rig that had 16GB RAM, i7 4790k, and Dual GTX-980 S.C.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1435989375.348900.jpg

So are you really getting REAL SEEABLE better performance than the included 980 in the laptop??
yes he has to be because its a desktop 980ti, a total beast. The 980m is roughly equivalent to the desktop 970. Im sure it is quite the difference.
