    Yup, with the 680m being my preference (but I like to push a card and those things can easily hit +220mhz with a decent overvolt!). The 780m sometimes causes on-board audio issues but the fix is to disable it in the bios and only re-enable it after the new card is installed fully. The 780m runs a little hotter so better quality paste is probably a good idea.

    On the R3 you will always have to mod the driver, get the .inf file needed @ forums.laptopvideo2go.com
    Good luck.

    heatsink mod is also required, also the 3d function is also going to mess with the panel and other things. Kepler is way to much of a pain and overclocking a fermi card is only advertisable if you have very good cooling otherwise it will die rather fast due to very bad manufaturing.

    EDIT: Nevermin the 680M is kelper. Good to go.

    Also the card can push far beyond that. I've made a couple of vBioses letting depending on the card and cooling run it between 1ghz - 1.1ghz core clock. Kepler cards are quite OC monsters.

    Yeah the 580m, stock top card in the R3, fails if you even try overclocking (I lost 3!).
    And the 3D is not going to function as it only works on stock model cards (licensing). It is fine on the R4. Temps on a 680m with a full overvolt stay under 75c, around the same as a 780m on stock

    Same here, had so many fermi cards burning mosfets to death and I never Oced them to begin with. I have heard that some guy managed to get 3D working with a 680M upgrade, it was with a modified BIOS tho, read that in a russian forum, so I suppose it's nothing official. Ohwell, I don't know a single person who ever used 3D features from their 3D AW panel anyways.

    Haha, oops, I love the 3D once I got the card running at a decent speed! My all time gaming top memory was a all-nighter on Metro LL. Setup as follows, 3D, room dark, dolby headset, and the AlienFX tied into the game so the keyboard had a bunch of atmospheric colours that aided play. Approach a heat source and that side of the KB gradually glows red. Hide in the shadows and a blacked out keyboard that gradually gets brighter as you move into the light. Even nicer, no eye-strain or headache, it is so superior to TV/Cinema 3D poo.....
    A Russian site would probably be the only place you would find this kind of bios mod. It breaches western copyright/licensing laws the way NV tied this down. You need a hacked 3D certificate entry, issued to OEM's when registering a 3D laptop.

    How do you feel about the 765m? Same as the 770? Problematic?

    anything with 7xx will be possible but also be a real headache.

    Ok gotcha. If I was to pick up a 7xx series card, you think my heatsink from the 460m could handle it?

    No, you need to mod it, possibly cut something off etc. The layout of those cards are very different.
