hello,

thank you for the answer.

What is the website to order?

The 7970 is better?

If you don't use CUDA cores then 7970m should be near 100% faster than 675m=580m

Try ebay, nbr market, or market here.

You can try to buy clevo with enduro-off bios.

Thank you.

I'll look on ebay :)

I should not change internal cooling with a 580 or 675?

If you buy an AMD card, you will need to buy a 5870M heatsink AND make small modifications to it with a rotary tool (Dremel). If you buy an Nvidia card, you will need to either modify the 560M heatsink completely OR buy a 570/580M heatsink. The 150W power supply is sufficient for every upgrade except for the 570M over-volted and the 580M.

People in Europe seem to have a much easier time finding spare MSI parts than in North America (GPU heatsinks).

If you want maximum performance, @debianik nailed it in his posts. The 7970M without Enduro vBIOS + 28xxQM CPU (with ThrottleStop) are the best possible upgrades for this notebook.

Thanks still having trouble finding a place to buy a GTX675m. All the ones i've come across so far are either not working or really expensive.
