    Are you guys hopeful 970M will work OK on Windows 10? Directx12 should be awesome!

    I meant in terms of compatibility, seeing as how the gtx 970m isn't officially supported by the m15x....

    That is not the m15x they are selling, it's the alienware 15 with a soldered gpu.

    I noticed you've been asking that same question on the M17x forum.
    The answer is yes there are people who have verified it works.
    You will however like with the m15x needed custom vbios and moded driver .inf.
    Head over to TechInferno for more information. Even though there is lots of information on these here Notebook Review forums, the vbios mods and more detailed information on the whole process can be found on TechInferno.

    Also know that you need to full research before you do it. From what i hear it is pretty easy as far as it goes, but there can be hiccups.

    Thanks for the reply, heading over to Techinferno now, This weekend of mine will be reserved just for research on this, hopefully I get all answers before I take the plunge and buy that card and most importantly that it works, cos returns r not allowed

    Can you please provide me more sources that both 970m/980m works with the M17x R2? You have mentioned that people have verified that it does indeed work when all I could find is one Chinese website that seem a little sketchy. Thanks ahead!
