    Thanks! That would be great! I'm seeing 7970's for around $380-$400 on ebay, I assume that is a good price? Also, should I be concerned by a used gpu? Where else should I look to buy the part? Thanks!

    That price is pretty normal since the 7970M, 8970M and M290X all use the same chip.

    Hey ascottuk2010, did you take any pictures of your install? I could really use the help with my installation! (Thanks in advance for any help you can give!).

    Hey, just in case ascottuk2010 has gone MIA, is there any guides (preferably with images) that I can use to install the 7970m. I also am aware that I'll need to "flash" the BIOS. So a guide to doing that would be great to. I have found Jaybee83's guide, but it isn't for Sager and I don't know how much is different between the two.

    Thanks for the help!

    hi,

    I'm a proud P170HM owner, but recently found my notebook screen won't start up, but I can hear Windows starting up, even tried hdmi output with tv still nothing, anyone please? I think my hd7970m gave up...

    Would be about par for the course on those. Get in touch with your reseller and they may be able to arrange an alternate GPU purchase/install

    I believe that should work assuming you mean the 780m, you'll want to make sure it's listed as compatible with Clevo. If it doesn't specify where it came from you'll want to ask.

    thanks, it comes from alienware and mentionned compatible with Clevo/MSI/Alienware laptops?
    But I'v heard it could hang in MB bios?
