Hey whats up guys and gals? New member but have been researching here for quite some time. I have a... 2011 Alienware M17x R3 i7-2630QM CPU 16GB RAM Nvidia GTX 460M GPU Windows 8.1 Pro x64 I happened to find a good deal on ebay after a heated bidding war lol. So basically I want to upgrade the GPU to get a liitle more performance out of her. A few games have some terrible lag as Im playing. Ive been looking on ebay and doing research on a new one for the past couple weeks. Should I go with a 580m or save the extra money and get a 680m or a 780m? Something along that line. I dont wanna spend too much on a newer GPU. Any opinions would be appreciated!
Hello guys hoping you can help me out here. I recently picked up a gigabyte p35x v3 cf2 with a gtx980m i also have a msi gt70-0nd with a gtx675m. Unfortunately the msi's video card burnt out about a year ago but it is a much better machine for me. It stays much cooler and has a better screen/touchpad/keyboard. The p35x also gets way to hot and the motherboard has already died on me once, i believe the thermal solution in the gigabyte just cant handle gaming even with a cooling pad. During gaming i would see 95*+ on the cpu and the whole wrist pad gets very hot. My gt70 would only see 80*+ during heavy gaming and i don't need to carry around a cooling pad with it. Anyway i want to swap the videocard over from the p35x to the gt70, has anyone done this with success? I believe i could just flash the vbios with the MSI version avaliable from tech-powerUP. I am wondering about the heatsink, i work as a designer at a business with several CNC-vertical mills so i could fab something up just wondering if anyone has attempted this as it seems every gtx675 out there has burned itself out by now.
