Hello, I have a huge question, I would like to know if there's any chance to upgrade the video card on my Toshiba Qosmio X870, I have a Geforce GTX 670M installed, and I would like to install a Geforce GTX 670MX, because I want to be able to stream games to my Shield without having to buy another computer, the 670M is not supported but the 670MX is, I think both cards use the same MXM port, I might be able to get a GTX 770M, for about the same price as the 670MX, but my main concern is compatibility, please advise, thanks.
