Need help with upgrading my 2012 Alienware M18xR2, is it worth it?

    Hi,

    Oh ok, of course I’m still gonna use the left side GPU. So I’ve already got the GTX675m in the primary GPU position which obviously has a heatsink in it. I’m presuming that I can use the same heatsink with the 980 then, is that right?

    Yes, as the 675m used to be "top spec" regarding the heat output, it should already have a triple pipe heatsink. I 99% think it should fit the 980m, there may be a little chance it won't fit as there's 4 generations in between the two cards, as the 675m was Fermi based.
