    Thank you @Aaron44126 ! That was a quick reply from you.

    All right - I'll leave the BIOS alone since it does it's job ok.

    I think I'll try the GTX970m then, but what makes me worried a bit is the drivers - for my current setup it was a mess until I've found how to install the card. I am thinking of the upgrade though, because the system is throttling under current pressure and I believe I am reaching the PSU limits as well with the XM CPU and 880m combo.

    Any clues about that mSATA drive?

    edit -->

    One more question - what is that eDP thing? I have it right next to the LCD panel connector and it looks the same...

    you were right, thank you Aaron. I have:

    Memory slots
    Total memory slots 4
    Used memory slots 2
    Free memory slots 2
    Memory
    Type DDR3
    Size 16384 MBytes
    Channels # Dual
    DRAM Frequency 797,8 MHz
    CAS# Latency (CL) 11 clocks
    RAS# to CAS# Delay (tRCD) 11 clocks
    RAS# Precharge (tRP) 11 clocks
    Cycle Time (tRAS) 28 clocks

    the 700 and something that I remembered was the frequency.




    So I guess I need this one
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007B5S52C/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1

    That should be this:

    Even if the serial number is not shown

    Or, it could work if he'd find the RGB LED screen (or the whole assembly) and upgrade to it. The Optimus support would be gone, of course.

    Thanks for the answers!

    My m6700 is now running a GTX970m and it is way better than the 880m I was using before, mainly because of lower power consumption and better temperatures.

    Same question here. I do some research on Google and many sites for the information about R9 M290X on Precision M6700 if it works or not but still no luck (some users confirmed it worked, but some users said they've got black screen when install R9 M290X on M6600). There're alot of good deals on ebay about 4G DDR5 R9 M290X pulled from Alienware. I'm not worry too much about the perfomance since I've seen many videos on Youtube about the R9 M290X. And of course the R9 M290x's gaming performance is better than K4000, even if compares to K5000.
    I think it's now the best budget under 200$ GPU upgrade for M6700.
