I want to upgrade my Dell XPS M1710. . . what can i put in it?
Hello, I currently am running The Dell MXG061 is also known as Dell XPS M1710. I have 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo processor, 4GB of RAM and the nVidia Go 7950 GTX graphics card with 512MB of memory. I want to know if i can upgrade the graphics card and/or processor and if so how i find out which are compatable and will not fry the motherboard? Can you upgrade the motherboard in this unit?
Any help would be appreciated!

Well, you have a laptop...so that's never an easy starting point. Some laptops can be upgraded graphics wise, but that's not something I know too much about.

That's a 1730. It's completely different.
To the OP: No, the 1710 cannot be upgraded to anything faster than the 7950 GTX, and the CPU can only be upgraded to a 2.33GHz T7600 (which is almost assuredly not worth it).
