  1. Hi everyone! I just have a few questions regarding upgrading my M17x R3(Optimus with Optimus disabled). I'm running a GTX 580M at the moment but am starting to notice its limitations as new games come out and am wanting to upgrade. I noticed that the 780M does indeed work and am considering getting that GPU but I was wondering if there was any way possible to get the 980M running? I should also add that I'm planning on upgrading the CPU from a 2630 to a 2960XM but have no idea where to order the CPU. If there's no possible way to get the 980M working then I'll settle for a 780M. I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction on how to do the top two things? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  2. I'm not so sure that the 980M's are even half compatible due to M17x R3's not having UEFI support. I could be wrong though.
  3. Is it possible for a similar method like this to work in an M17x R3(Optimus Model with Optimus disabled)? I've got the unlocked A12 BIOS running(I don't have a choice since my iGP gives me a screen which went from flickering to not working at all). I'm currently running off a GTX 580M but am wanting to upgrade to the GTX 980M.
