    If you can get a good deal on a 680M that will make more sense than the 770M route.

    Ok, problems
    so i can boot into safe mode, from which i am writing now.... if i attempt to boot into normal mode, i will see the windows logo assembling, then the screen will go snow white and that's it.
    i have uninstalled all AMD drivers prior to installation, and used DriverSweeper in safe mode.
    also laptop have rebooting problems, sometimes the screen will just stay black after reboot and no POST.
    I have to remove AC and reconnect to get it to work again....so whats now ? Vbios flash ?

    Unsure if relevant but I noticed on the Upgradeyourlaptop eBay listing they advise use of BIOS A08 Unlocked 80.04.92.00.02 for m17x R2 owners.

    Alienware M17X M18X NEW Nvidia GTX 780M 4GB DDR5 MXM 3 0B | eBay

    Not sure if that makes a difference at all -

    I'm keenly watching this flingin, I was going to pick up a 680M a while ago but opted to wait for a 780M and see if it was worthwhile. Good luck !
