Don't know where to place my request, I've read some threads and couldn't find the right one (hope to be redirected if the topic was put somewhere i th's forum). The thing is - can I change my dell m6500 firepro 7820 to let say - quadro 3800 (or m5000)? Or Ati m8900? Is the mobo compatible?

If you have a free pci-e slot and a psu that can power it, then sure

Hmmm, I have read that Lenovo Thinkpad W701 series use the same mobo and it can support either ati 7820 or m3800 fx, but as m5000 is hell of a lot faster - what about heat? My precision (m6500) without battery runs flawlessly and cool, but on battery - lot of temp problems :/ . I will try talking with someone from Dell service cuz god damn I can't find anything on the web about this topic :/
