    The 1080 is NOT the same as the 980M. Completely different in too many ways. It's not only much larger, takes twice the power almost, and no heatsink made to fit it in the AW17 - however I have a guy who is doing this specific upgrade - but it is heavily modified. Stick with 980M is the best bet, if your crazy and want to do full customization, 1060N or 1070N is more plausible if you can get the 120hz panel and eDP cable and for the 1070 do not mind modding the chassis and heatsinks.

    The 980M sounds great! I don't want to do modding! I just want to plug the new GPU and that's it. Thanks for the info! Will be PM you as soon as I have an address in the Philippines. How long does it take to reach the Philippines based on your experience?
