    Hi as what my title states, I'd like to know if it's possible to reball my existing gt 750m and replace it with a gt 765m?

    My alienware 14 is currently experiencing lines on the screen. I think my unit's gt 750m is going to fail soon and a reball will do the fix. While we're at it at reballing, why not replace the gpu chip into gtx 765m right?

    Looking forward to your inputs on this.

    You could get an alienware 14 765m motherboard for less than you would end up paying for the reball.

    Ask @Khenglish about the success rate of reballing BGA GPUs.

    It won't work as the 750m and 765m use different cores. The bga for a 765m is much larger than that of a 750m.

    With that said, the maxwell 860m and 960m are actually compatible. Unfortunately no one knows how to build the franken vBIOS that your system would then require, and you'd have to be very lucky that one from a later system would be compatible.
