8600M GS to GT Tags: Graphics Cards Aspire Acer Graphics Last response: September 6, 2009 5:08 AM in Graphics & Displays Share womersley247 September 4, 2009 2:36:08 PM i have an acer aspire 5920g with a 8600M GS, is it possible to upgrade to the 8600M GT (if not ill just replace the GS as its not working) and if so do you know of any where that will sell these. More about : 8600m neonmonkey September 4, 2009 4:28:54 PM I believe it is possible to replace them as long as your laptop has enough power (since you are running a gs i would guess it will run a gt). you can purchase them on Ebay for $100+ but it is not recommended to replace laptop graphics cards unless you are an uber pro at that sort of thing meodowla September 5, 2009 4:59:12 AM I don't know it is possible to upgrade GPU in Aspire. In some Dell, it is possible. ebay has lot of MGPU. You could try selling it there. Also if it is possible to upgrade, why go for 8600GT.. better get some 9 series card like 9800GT.

Both cards are equally bad these days (8600GT = 9500GT). Get at least a 9600GT if you want an upgrade... Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : ForumGames for my 8600M GT ?
