    What I meant to say is dell says these cards are 4870s but they show up as 4850s (or something like that I forget), thanks for the info, but I already have it covered. I just purged the whole situation from my memory because it no longer matters, 50 or 70 she's still like 5 generations old

    Well my ebAy sourced like for like replacement works fine, and I have sent my original for reballing.
    Back to X16 is welcome.
    As I still use it I look at upgrades it's easy and relatively cheap to find a good CPU, 8 GB ram is around but not cheap, an SSD would be nice for gaming, it's just the GPU which holds the rest back.
    So still going hard after six years again with a thorough clean very often.

    If my tweaker roommate didn't drop mine or whatever they did to it (long story) itd still be running, but since the hinge is buggered I just have it sitting off to the side, albeit still fully functional

    According to MSI, this SKU is completely EOL therefore no parts were available anymore.
    Check on eBay or NBR marketplace and see if you can find it.

    That would be my guess. These computers, though awesome, are outdated and an obsolete screen ratio. I'm further bummed because I have a very lush panel and it had amazing color.

    I own MSI 1722 ID2 and I wanted to do some upgrades , so I read all posts but links on front page doesn’t work , can anybody tell my if topic :

    If you're interested in the i7 version of the 1722 (AKA MSI-1727 / GT740), please go here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=435164

    still exist ?

    Also I need newest firmware and BIOS , so if anybody could send it to me I would be grateful ;-)

    As far I understand the best graphic card that I can upgrade to is 4850 , will this model fit in my motherboard : http://www.aliexpress.com/item/ATI-...5870-HD4870-Graphic-Card-DDR5/1388840444.html ?

    What CPU will work with 4850 better ? Intel Core 2 Duo T9900 CPU 3.06 GHz or X9100
    6M Cache, 3.06 GHz , one has a lower TDP but other has more cache ?
    Thank You in advance
    PS : Dollar is going up and Cyber Monday I soon I want to make my decision as fast as possible
