    Is that to say that these wouldn't work with a 7730?

    Yes, Dell has differently-sized cards for the 15" and 17" systems and @Ionising_Radiation has been procuring some of the 15" cards.

    Ah, in that case I can't use one of these. Thanks though @Ionising_Radiation .

    I was, but perhaps you might read the earlier pages in this thread—you might reconsider asking :)

    TL;DR: The cards for the 7730 cost upwards of $2000. This is a temporary loophole that Dell might close at any time.

    I remember. I thought maybe a lovely loophole opened for the 7730-compatible GPUs too. So call me a dreamer...

    Yeah I remember as well.
    What about the 4000rtx and 5000rtx for the 7740?

    Great to see the update. Is it true that the cable MX2D7, the screws XX602 and the connectors NGRJG can be reused from those come with a 7540 and only a new heatsink assembly M2F8R is required?
