    Yes, it’s damn complicated. Not for the LCD itself, you can still easily find this. But the color board... the color board is something that is pretty much impossible to be found, may be except taobao, but there you really want to have some Chinese or Russian friend, who can give you a hand.

    I took apart my non DC 8770W, I was not able to locate the colorboard, to compare it with what I found on AliExpress https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32821640664.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.5e434c4dt8GUTJ



    I even took apart the LCD casing, I wasd not able to locate the colorboard, I also found the needed 50 pin cable too. I`ve read on some forums that someone bogth from Taobao the LCD DC2 from a seller named Grape882008, I found the guy, I placed the order, I made the payment... he canceled the order cause he said if I did not previousely had DC on my 8770W it wont work, so he did`t even bothered to answer my questions... the guy it`s pretty hard to get a few words from him... I probably give up on it and get a
    HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 13.3" and just forget about this headache upgrade...

    *********HP 8770W DreamColor II i7-3840QM 2.8-3.8GHz II G.Skill Ripjaws 4x8GB DDR3L@1866MHz CL10 II Quadro M5000M 8GB GDDR5 (O/C 1400/5400MHz Core/Mem) II 512GB Samsung 860 Pro + 500GB Samsung 860 Evo mSata + 2x2TB Toshiba L200 HDD II 7260AC WiFi II Ericsson WWAN II Backlit keyboard II Broadcom BT 4.0 II Win 10 Pro II 230W PSU*********


    Quadro M5000M 8GB GDDR5 (O/C 1400/5400MHz Core/Mem) / I am also in search for a GPU, I have the FirePro as for now, but I thought about K5100M it`s half of the price of M5000M I am wondering if is worth the extra money since both are 8GB...

    You will not be able to locate the color board, because you have a non DC display - in your case there is no color board behind the screen.

    As for your other question - M5000M is around 50% faster than K5100m. Everywhere. No matter the fact both are 8GB, the speed difference is day and night.
    K5100M in 3DMark 11 ~ 7500pts (6800pts GPU scores)
    M5000M in 3DMark 11 - 11000pts (13000 GPU scores)
    M5000M Overclocked in 3DMark 11- 13000pts (15500 GPU scores)
    K5100m in FireStrike - ~4500 pts
    M5000m in FireStrike - 8000 pts (9500 with OC)


    What you found on AliExpress is not what you need. Thats just the chip, you need the entire board and the prices are normally around 100-120€, if found at all.

    This should be your best bet, but as I said- you need a pal, who can collaborate with the order and shipping as it comes from taobao:

    Does the 8770W DC has the Colorboard in the LCD casing? If I buy the DC with whole assembly does it comes with the colorboard and 50pin cable as well?


    Thanks for the info regarding the GPU, I am only using the laptop for photo and video editing, since it is so hard to find a Dreamcolor screen and a M5000M with a i7 3940XM CPU and all the hassle with the Dreamcolor display would total something around $900 - $1 000 USD... and it`s damn heavy to carry it around, I have a great job where I can bring my laptop at work and work on my photos, but bringing my 8770W it`s not so convenient... I curently have 3630QM with FirePro M4000it is fine, but I do feel the lack of power sometimes. I would`t mind the upgrade, as long I would upgrade to Dreamcolor too, since it`s so hard to get my hands on a Dreamcolor... I just better invest into a PC...


    And as for something portable I can get a HP - Spectre x360 2-in-1 15.6" 4K OLED Ultra HD Touch-Screen Laptop - Intel Core i7 8565U - NVIDIA GeForce MX150 -16GB DDR4 Memory - 1TB SSD + Optane... for $2 000 USD...

    I know, maybe it wont be so powerful as my 8770W, but it`s a lot lighter winch makes portability very convenient and I get that much needed screen since for photo/video image its everything!

    There is no such a model as 8750W, there is 8570W which is the 15 inch version of 8770W.
    No way 15” to fit 17”:)
    You need the upper part only of 8760/8770W

    I just did a little bit of research and I just realized there's no such a thing... 8750W, trying to talk to Chinese people it's not an easy thing

    Ok, I am back again... So, somehow I managed to talk to someone in China, they are willing to send me the DC2 LCD Screen, 50pin Cable and the Colorboard, but the Colorboard comes from a 8560W and I have been told they are the same, the thing is that they do not have the cable from the DC2 LCD to the Colorboard... I am wondering if nyone has a part number for that and what are the odds to find one?
