    Eurocom has one and I think the MSI one works

    Wow, for these prices you might as well just buy a new laptop. Thank you for letting me know though.

    1 1070 is about the same as 2 980M so just buy whatever is cheapest. eBay and taobao are good places to buy cards cheap.

    Still waiting on that RMA, they've had it in possession since 2/5 and no real status update. This is dragging out reeeaaalll long since I started this quest in November, and it's getting ready to be March.

    I would probably prefer 1070 over 980M SLI only because of having to do reset trick for no throttling. But otherwise 980M SLI is more convenient. PEG mode allows nVidia cards to route the video outputs (DP 1.2) vs Optimus being led by iGPU (DP 1.1) etc.

    I find it annoying having to have iGPU control everything. As said Optimus isn't a benefit here since we can always run iGPU only for better battery life.
