Hi all, I'm doing a small project to try to resurrect my GT783R (MS-16711) and I'd like some advice. I'd like to replace the video card as I suspect it is where lies the issue. When I went to eBay to look for spare cards, I noticed that a new GTX580M for Alienware costs around 130.00 while a pre-owned one for MSI costs about 250.00. After researching a bit, I found that the vbios from Alienware is not compatible with the one from MSI. So here is my question, is it possible to flash the MSI vbios into an Alienware card? I suspect so but I'd like confirmation from someone with experience. Also, assuming it works, will flashing the vbios be the only procedure needed or do I have to do something else? Peace, Amid
