    With that, you will have maxxed out your specs! Will it be worth it? It depends on what you're doing with it.
    Overclocked you might reach the 4,7Ghz area, maybe 4,5Ghz for daily use, depends on the silicon lottery.

    I havent bought it yet but want to make sure my rig can handle GTA5 on something better than low details:) This is compared to my current 2670QM.

    Hi. So my 580m on my p170hm3 is dead. So i'm looking for something cheap just to get my laptop running. Any compatibility list for cheaper/older cards?

    The 560M will work and is cheaper than replacing the 580M. Some of the 4xxM cards will also work, as will the AMD 6970M and 6990M (but beware the latter, it struggles with heat more than many other cards from its time).

    Okay so i found the seller with new quadro 4000m, and he told that this card will work in windows with no problem but only my bios will not recognise the device, so i was wondering will i get no image until windows boots or only in bios it gona say "not recognized" ?
    It's a pity that new mobile card holds such hay price, as well buying used is a big gamble

    The HM series was always very picky due to having a different EC setup.

    That may be. Is it not a Clevo card, then? Historically, other OEM cards do not work in Clevos, at least not without some time and effort.

    My 580M on my p170HM3 is dead as well. Been dead for a while but it's time to investigate if the prices on GPU cards have dripped. I can get to the bios, I see windows booting, but then get a white screen.
    I've not followed threads to this laptop in a while, but I remember something about making sure to get the correct exact matching card and from Clevo. I'll start reading the many many posts and try to catch up.

    Hi Meaker,
    I believe safe mode sort of works. I have to check again cause I've had this issue for a while and forgot about it and now am revisiting it. I have another Sager that I have to RMA and then I tried sending this one back for repair, but it's EOL and no parts. I probably just need a 580M.
