    I recently picked up a m18x from the marketplace, it only has a 560m. The card is decent, but i'm thinking of kicking things up a notch by adding another 560m in SLI config, which based on benchmarks will give me about the same performance of a single 580m. 580m is a great card, but too expensive right now. I found this 560m on ebay, but i'm not sure if it will fit. Does anyone know?

    JAD, that is a Clevo card. It will fit but i'm not sure how well it'll go together with your Dell one or with the system itself (fan control etc.)

    That's an ASUS card which is physically different and it won't fit.
    Your best bet is to find a Dell 560M.
