    Hello,

    (Posted this in upgrades but believe I should have posted it here first)
    Not sure if this is entirely the right area to post this, but my laptop is out of warranty and I recently shattered my Alienware 15 R2' screen. I'm going to have to replace it no matter what but was wondering if now would be a good time (if possible) to upgrade the screen as well.
    Have a love/hate relationship with the laptop (always been salty it didn't get a laptop with g-sync).

    GPU - GTX 970m (regret not getting a 980m haha)
    Display - Generic PnP monitor (60hz) (32 bit) 1920x1080
    CPU - i7 6700HQ (2.6ghz)

    Mainly looking to replace/upgrade screen. Open to any other upgrades you guys may know of as well!
    Thank you!

    In this case you can only upgrade to another 1080P screen unfortunately and no Gsync. If you want 4K you need the 40 pin display cable, 4K screen bracket, 4K screen bezel and the 4K panel itself. Thats your only other option.

    You can get some screen options from @woodzstack, I trust him better than ebay sellers.

    how about shippping ?? haha.. and the worst thing about R1/R2 screen replacement, you always dont get the exact part or model ur looking.. 70% of time they convince you to get a alternate model.. EX:- LG WF6 SPA1, instead they suggest you to get M1.. i found few on chinese websites, they have stock, but they sell only in lots.. MOQ - 10PCS..
