Can I Install Two Graphic Cards Into The Alienware 17?
I was going to purchase the new Alienware 17 that contains one NVIDIA GeForce 780 graphics card. The Alienware 18 contains two of the 780 graphic cards but for $800 more. Wouldn't I just be able to purchase a NVIDIA 765, or 770 graphics card and have someone install it for me rather than spend the extra $800, and still have two graphic cards? Im not sure if the computer allows another graphics card or not.
No idea. You'll need to check three things.
1) Size of the Alienware 17 Case: Does it have room for 2 full length video cards without interfering with PSU, drive bays, etc.
2) Will the Power Supply Unit handle two GTX 780's.
3) Does the motherboard they are using have 2 PCI-Express slots that are separated by two slots so you can install two cards onto the motherboard to begin with.
