    For the 980M and as Zoldago said, no need for an unlocked BIOS. The stock A12 - A13 is enough. I am not even sure if the modded inf (driver) is needed as well. I believe an UEFI windows installation is the only thing needed then it should be plug and play. Of course don't forget to buy a AC Adapter of 240w. For the 1060M same as the 980M but you will need to have a 120hz display, an eDP one. For the 1070M, the tuto is here :

    Hello Silly, Yes there is tutorial for this. But you must have a 120hz display an eDP one. Someone also managed to install an 1070 by cutting some parts of the laptop to make it fit.

    Thanks again Zoldago. So, I will probably go for a 980M. A last question, do u think I need to upgrade my bios from stock A12 to A13 or it's not necessary ? Thanks.

    Hello Zoldago, Thanks for your input! I am not sure to understand when people talk about "stock" bios, you probably talk about official bios right ? In this way, where did you find the A13 official bios as the latest one on the dell website is the A12 ? https://www.dell.com/support/home/en/en/bgbsdt1/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=XP73G Thank you in advance. EDIT: Oh you are probably talking about this one: https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=8RW9V ? EDIT: Also about your 980M/1060M upgrade please not that I have a MX17R4 60hz and not 120hz, is this makes a difference if I choose to buy one of those cards ?

    Guys, Thank you very much for your inputs! So the next step for me is to define if I am going with a 680M 4GO or I go up with a 7/8/9 series (which will need unlocked bios). I will probably come back to you when it will be time to install the new GC. Thank a lot!

    Hello, Anyone with some input ? Thank you in advance.
  7. Hi all, I own an Alienware MX17 R4 (from 2012/2013 don't remember well) running with the official A12 bios and I am planning to change the discreet NVIDIA 675M because unfortunately it died. First and as I don't have so much money to spend on this, I am planning to change it by a 680M 4GO. Is this one a "good" choice ? Don't hesitate to propose me another GPU. Is the installation of a 680M 4GO will require a unlocked bios version ? (A11 unlocked ?). Do u know any website on which I can buy a 680M 4GO, I am really not a big fan of ebay... Thank you in advance.
