    Yeah but at the same time you don't really want to buy a card from the states and pay the shipping to Australia I'd imagine.

    True Hence why I'm trying to get it lower price. Atm i can buy a 4870 card from dell for 495 Dollars. Which is cheap imo. But the bad thing is they won't send a Tech out to put it in.

    Oh you can put it in yourself, Youtube it, watch a video demonstration on how to do it, and read a guide on how to do it. WE all have faith in you:D

    It's pretty simple with the M17x, read page 80: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/M17x/en/SM/sm_en.pdf

    You remove the battery, service panel, power button panel, and then the keyboard (card is underneath the keyboard).

    I can change the cards in about 10 minutes (not including drivers).

    Very easy to do, if you have a single card M17x you should get this. Makes a huge difference.

    ahh, you should have contacted me outside ebay, would have given you a little better discount since ebay rapes sellers with their 5 or 6% fees.
