Did you face throttling with m5000m in your dell or hp workstation?

    More likely than not, it does not even need a different vBIOS. As long as the GPU does not have a crappy UEFI-only firmware it should work fine in a system with Legacy or UEFI BIOS. It also depends on which Dell you have.

    With a Dell vBIOS it should be fine. Almost all vendor cards work in the Precision with the stock vBIOS, but HP is an exception because they tend to leave part of the vBIOS in the system firmware. It may or may not work without a flash. Make sure that you have graphics switching turned on before attempting the card swap — with the Intel GPU active you won't have any trouble performing the flash. Flash from Linux if you can swing it, less chance for trouble.

    1060 does not work in the M6800, at least with Windows (BSOD on boot no matter what you do). GeForce 980M does work though and performance is equal to the M5000M for games.

    I was considering a 980M because its slightly cooler, but its a $100 more so I guess 980M?

    Totally depends on availability and what you plan on using it for. For just entertainment and gaming purposes 980M is pretty good. If you also work on Professional applications then the Quadro helps in acceleration during certain calculations.
