    i see that 361.42 is the available version for download for linux 64. When i try to install nvidia drivers downloaded from nvidia's site in my Lenovo Y500 650m SLI, my ubuntu stops working. Then i have to remove/purge everything from nvidia and install them through apt-get. Of course not this version.

    Does anybody follow the linux driver versions? I mean does anybody use the official site to download the latest drivers in linux?

      Setup:
       - Install Windows 10 as Windows To Go with Rufus;
       - Install Bootcamp;
       - Reboot to Windows with Akitio connected and install latest Nvidia Driver;

      Hello folks,

      I have a m6600 laptop with i7-2760qm, 8gb ram and a firepro m8900 gfx. I'm looking for a good gfx upgrade for better gaming performance (especially fallout 4). I've locked down on two candidates: FIrepro M6100 and Quadro k4000m. Here's the ebay links for both. The seller assured me that the cards will be compatible with my laptop.

      M6100: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Dell-Precisi...252699?hash=item4d46335b9b:g:-VoAAOSw3YNXbT6X

      K4000M: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/HP-Dell-M660...512594?hash=item25c38bdad2:g:uzYAAOSwi0RX0AnA


      I would like to hear some great advices from all you pros, especially if you have hands on experience on either cards in your m6600 lappy:

      1. I wonder if m6100 would be an easier option for my lappy since it's AMD product like my m8900

      2. I wonder if I go k4000m do I need to change my x-bracket, rearrange thermal pads or even need to change the heatsink (sorry I haven't changed a laptop gfx before)

      I'm in favor of k4000m since it has twice the video memory, more ROPs and TMUs which is great for gaming. M6100 may run a bit cooler and has more OC potential (it has 1050mhz gpu base clock vs 600 for K4000M). All in all, I'm choosing between an underclocked GTX 660 and a HD 7790, though I could bring the K4000M clock up a bit. But Nvidia cards are more optimized for gaming. What's your thought folks?
       
      Of course if you have better options especially if there's anyone has upgraded to gaming cards like GTX 680M, HD 7970M or 760M, 765M, 675M, etc I'm eager to hear from you folks.

      Thanks for your inputs!
