This makes me assume that it's just the slot that were modified if there indeed is no compatible upgrade for the Dragon. There are no loose-wire gpu mods on the Dragon 8800m (wire with 2 random solder points), and logically nVidia wouldn't alter a gpu circuit just for one pc. But the connectors, possibly. I've been searching for a pc with our same 8800m which can be upgraded, but no success. Very annoying how these parts become virtually unsearchable once they have been discontinued.
