Hi there!

I plan to upgrade my Alienware m15x to a GTX 670mx or GTX 770m. Now the GTX 770m is cheaper than the GTX 670mx on ebay.

Has somebody experiene with the GTX 770m in an Alienware m15x? Are there Problems with the Onboardsoundcard (Whitescreenproblem)?

Thanks for your help!:encouragement:

Well I got the 670mx and its plug n play... Just google how to modify the inf so the driver installer recognizes your card and your good to go... I have a dell 670mx

It's a great card :) At first i thought it was slow but then realized my processor stopped turboclocking or running at full speed :( Stayed at 900 mhz... Now with throttlestop fixing that I can play everything maxed pretty much at 900p... Exception is BF3 with my processor bottleneck... That is ultra text and everything else high and ssao

      Hi all. I was wondering if anyone had ever figured out if windows 10 will work with the GTX 770m on the M15x (bios A09). I've found a few forum posts about it and they all end up off topic. Ive tried a few different driver versions but every single one ends up green/pink/white screening when I enable the IDT sound device in device manager and through driver setup. It is stable if I don't have the device enabled. Anyone have any advice?

      Hello all! I really hope I'm not breaking any rules or anything by doing this, but I have a quick question.
      I'm currently using svl7's 770m inf. file for driver version 320.49 for my Alienware M15x. It works awesomely, and svl7 is a lifesaver, but I've had this particular driver for a good bit over a year now, and I was just wondering if he had maybe released a more up-to-date inf. file for the newer drivers for the 770m for the Alienware M15x.
      I noticed the newer drivers use a inf. file with the name "nvcvi" as opposed to "nvcvn".
      Thanks again everyone for y'all's help!
      P.S. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64x

      Would this combination work? GPU is from AW 17 R5.

      hey guys, new to the forums here.
      so yesterday i traded my Xbox one (i actually bought it for 99 cents last year) for a co workers Alienware m15x, its got the core i7 820qm, 8gb ram, no hard drive (i threw a 500gb sshd in and imaged it) it had a gt 240m (i put a gtx 470m in it). the laptop is kinda beat up and will need a new bottom (like $15 on eBay) but i got the gtx 470m and the laptop for my xbox one so i dont think it was a bad deal.
      i installed the gtx 470m yesterday and it wasnt taking the card so i created a DOS bootable thumb drive and upgraded the bios. And presto she fired right up. i couldnt find the drivers for the card anywhere and the nvidia ones wouldnt work, so i used one of those driver utilities to find the drivers (the program seemed sketchy but it worked). so now i have the right drivers and everything however the card is running really slow, 50mhz clock speed, 135mhz memory clock.
      so thats where im at, im currently moving so i will wait on ordering the parts but i plan to get all new casing and a new keyboard. i tried msi afterburner and i cant adjust the clock speed on the card at all so im considering selling the gtx 470m since dell doesnt support it and getting a gtx 460m.
      I'll try and post some pictures later on tonight, luckily this isnt my main laptop so i can take my time on it (i use an Alienware 17 r5 as my main) anyways, any help with the upgrade would be hugely appreciated, and let me know of any other upgrades i should do to the laptop.
