    I need a new GTX560M for a MSI MS-16F2, the current one is starting to die. Any compatible cards are also accepted, if they work as a plug and play replacement.

    Thank you

    You could upgrade to a GTX 770M, as i did on my old MS-16F2, I think i still have my GTX 560M somewhere.

    Best is 7970m (or 8970m : R9 M290X) or nvidia 770m gtx.
    970m and 980m GTX are also compatible.
    680m / 780M / 870m / 880m and quadro K do not work at all.
    cheapest option for you is AMD firepro M6100 (around 30$ on ebay). Performances are close to 770m gtx. But you need custom bios first. PM me if you need help

    Thank you @johnbb, but the owner already opted for a reball.

    But for the sake of information

    Are these drop in replacements? No heatsink change, no modded bios and drivers?

    Nvidia cards are drop in replacements. You may need to cut the heatsink a bit with a dremel (5 min job).
    Amd card requires modded bios but after that are plug and play
