Sup guys, I have a m17x and had to take 2 years off immediately after I bought it because of an accident. Needless to say, I need a new card.
EDIT: ATM I have a GTX 285M SLi & this Alienware laptop M17x-R2. At first I thought it was just an R1, but apparently it's an R2. Haha
Anyways, idk how to go about looking for a new card. I've already verified they can be replaced, but some people were talking about PCI motherboard or something...making sure to buy a new SLi bridge...idk I'm just very confused.
Youtube vids, easy as pie as the Alienware laptops are made to be easily upgradable. High-end laptop gpus are expensive, if you have 285s sli'd you should be able to play newer games no prob unless they're broken or you feel the need to run everything on ultra-high at 60fps. If the latter is the case you'll need a new laptop.
