    Since it sounds like it matters, the machine I'm looking to upgrade the GPU on is a 7730. But since we haven't had an update, I'm guessing the news it's great.

    Hi everyone, I'm so sorry on the delay.

    Dell has been giving me the run-around. I've called and emailed them four times over the past week (apparently a call centre in Malaysia handles Singapore, and it was a public holiday there this past Monday), and the customer support officer I just called earlier this evening (it's Friday night where I am) said I should receive a quote "next week" (verbatim; I asked him to clarify exactly when, and he was unable to do so), because the parts people were apparently "updating stocks and prices".

    I apologise for this (even though I couldn't really do much about it), and I really, really hope I get a quote from them ASAP so everyone here can get their hands on a more decently-priced Quadro RTX GPU.

    @trackerPoint, I hope you don't mind holding out for a while more until I get the RTX quotes. If I don't get them by next Wednesday, I can consider shipping out my P3200 to you.

    Just tagging everyone who's relevant (in case any of you haven't subscribed to this thread, in which case it might be a good idea to do so): @Aaron44126, @faenil, @microdou, @Div033, @win32asmguy, @BotenRedWolf, @contradude, @TunaDog.

    Thinking that might mean "Oops, we messed up on the original price big-time!".

    I'm afraid so, too. We'll see what we get.

    Hi again guys. I live in Canada but I have a shipping address in US, so I chatted with dell.us parts rep today. Here's what I found, US dollars -

    PR6WV --> Assembly, Heatsink, W/FAN, NVE, 7530 (Quantity 1) - $69.99
    NGRJG --> Assembly, Connector, Board To Board, DGFF, 7X30 (Quantity 2) - $9.99 (I'm assuming ea.)
    MX2D7 --> Cable, DGFF, Power, 7530 (Quantity 1) - $9.99
    XX602 --> Screw, M2x3, Flat Head, Machine Screw, Nickel, Silver (Quantity 4) - out of stock
    RTX 3000 - Unavailable

    Ionising_radiation, if u were to end up selling me your P3200, I wonder if the PR6WV heat sink would work with it? -- Later everyone

    That appears to be the correct, dGPU version of the heatsink.

    @Aaron44126, you were right:

    Top is the Quadro RTX 5000, bottom is the RTX 3000. Is anyone still interested in upgrading? :vboops:

    That's more in line with what I was originally expecting :p
    (More expensive than just adding it to a 7X40.)
    You totally lucked out with your card. Also, without that slip-up it would probably be quite a while before we even knew if this upgrade would work.
