#1Marshall_LawPosted 3/24/2014 10:50:13 PM
I have two amd 6990m in my laptop and don't get me wrong I can still play whatever I want to play but the amd cards have just bee agrivating as hell for me and I want something new.

My question is where can I order laptop GPUs? And what would be a good upgrade in thr nvidia family?

Actually I just found that I can order a nvidia 680m gtx 4gb gddr5 from the company I bought my laptop from but is that an upgrade? And how much ?

I would check to see if you can install a new GPU. I can't on mine unless I change the motherboard with it (Alienware m14 x r2) Which would be a waste of money IMO.

I don't think you can change from an AMD GPU to a NVIDIA GPU in a laptop. The average price for a new 2gb 680m is around $600.00 I've seen them cheaper used. I haven't been able to find what a 4gb version costs. Its generally not worth it to upgrade a laptop gpu.

AMD crossfire drivers for laptop gpu's are pretty horrid.

The 4gb kit costs 699 from the company that built mine I did find out that the heat sink takes up all the room so I can only use one. I have the Clevo p180hm case if anyone cares
