    It should work. It's recommended that you flash the patched BIOS first - some 9500M GSes lock up during POST in the 5920G without the patch.

    No. You will need the one from the Acer MXM BIOS modding thread. The one you linked to is just a menu mod.

    Thank you very much.
    I just install this "5920G_MXM_V3.WPH" and will try the 9500m GS when I get in my hands.
    I saw that it is confirmed that the 9600m gt works at Acer 5920g now with this patched BIOS "5920G_MXM_V3.WPH".
    Is this true,
    Tell me before i am gonna crazy,
    I have tried 5-6 different 9600m gt without success and now i don't have nothing.
    What was the best and safest choice for the Acer 5920g, in the final? 8600M GT? 9500M GS? 9600M GT? 9650M GT? or some ATI vga card?
    Please reply to my questions....please.

    I would personally go for a 9600m gt ddr3 if you can get one to work. I plan to put one in my acer along with a x9000 cpu when I get the cash and time to do it.

    If you already have the 9500m gt, that is a great card for overclocking (see my sig). You should be able to overclock it quite a bit, the only problem for me is it only has ddr2 ram.
