    Weird. I bought it for my brother but it wasn't as a present. It was so he would get off and stop playing games on mine (After I swapped a few parts of course).

    Now that's what I'm calling a coincidence Well, my brother is not that much of a gamer, so that's why a little GPU swap wouldn't be a problem for him at all

    Hmmmm. I took another look at the list of other known MXM cards and I noticed that the GTS 160M was listed as a MXM-II. Doesn't that card have a 256-bit memory bus? Shouldn't that be a MXM-III?

    EchoShade, that's only if the MSI MS-1651 can accept MXM-III cards. Since the stock card is an MXM-II card, I believe that the GTS 160M may be an MXM-II card.
    (and yes, it is a 256-bit card. Wouldn't THAT be a steal?)

    Thanks, it's a dirty job but someone has got to do it.

    And knowing there is little to be found on the internet about the mxm compatibility I am happy to contribute where I can. Plus I learn allot of new things to.

    Hey, hold on. I just noticed this.

    Someone's looking for a DDR3 4650, right? In a thread by classic77 and his account of an upgrade to a 4650, there was someone asking what the difference is between this 4650 and this one. What does the 900MHz mean? Surely the 500MHz one is a DDR2 model but what about the 900MHz one?

    It is DDR3, but it uses the new MXM standard - MXM 3.0. Our laptops are featuring the old one - MXM 2.1

    I quite thought that the MXM.900MHz (or something) meant it was MXM 2.1. Aww. False hope. Sorry. Heheh.

    The MXM 2.1 standard is, as far as I can tell, limited to 800 MHz memory speed - that's why even the high-end MXM cards still have GDDR3-800 memory chips. Of course, overclocking can take it beyond that, but that's going out of spec anyway.
