I have an Alienware m15x with an nvidia geforce 240m graphics card. I have a friend that has an AMD/ATI Radeon 6870m, but it does not come with the backplate or the heat sink. Can I remove and reuse the current backplate and heat sink i already have on the 240m?

as far as I know, no you cannot. First of all, AMD/ATI cards generally don't work well with Nvidia cards, and you're on a laptop. Alienware are also known to use non-standard parts...
