skyrim is maxing out my VRAM after heavy modding and ENB tweaking. now crashing it to desktop once it spikes on the VRAM. thinking of upgrading to GTX 670 4GB. that or SLI with another GTX 570. I get constant 40+ fps with the 2k hd textures, lighting and various other graphic mods (about 106+ mods installed through workshop and 10 through nexus). its just the vram limitations are causing it to crash.

so if anyone of you guys is willing to buy my GTX 570 HD OC 1.2GB then I'll just upgrade. taking a huge loss but its electronics, no resale value.

ASUS Zenbook UX21(11.6") or UX31(13.3")

They're the older models, but they are still more than capable ultrabooks. The UX21 with an i7 is just under(~799-899) your 1k limit, but i5 variations of both can be found a lot of places for ~$700. I think the 13.3" got better reviews as far as the screen goes.

Does anyone have a mobile workstation and could give me a quick rundown of these questions:
How does it feel lugging it around with you?
How is the battery life?
Cooling compared to pro consumer laptops?
How quiet are they as I might be using this for when I record friends in music programs as well?

Anyone that has Windows 8, does iTunes work to the point where it may crash at some point or does it not work completely at all?

Wide screen gaming lul and portrait monitor is for monitoring temps and speeds and keeping all my shortcuts. I actually use it for productivity as well, I do a lot of spread sheets docs and auto cad for school/work. But if it was a full work rig all my monitors would be portrait

the screen. its a 2560 x 1700 ips panel
guess how much a 2560 x 1600 resolution monitor costs. I've never seen one for less than 1000. now add the pc parts. 

but you do get One terabyte of Google Drive cloud storage, free for 3 years, which costs bout $1800. for 1200 and what you get. its a fucking steal really.
