    Looking to upgrade the old lady before i finish off my 8700M for good by pushing it too far. I'd also be interested in alternative MXM II GPUs if they are comparable in performance (and still work). I did actually buy a 280M for it from China, but the seller shipped it to the wrong address even after I provided the correct one. The same seller has some 9800Ms, but i'd rather see if anyone here has any before I try them again.

    Also, if anyone with a D901C has a spare GPU heatsink and fan i'd be interested in buying them so I can give SLI a go.

    Quadro FX 3700M are most comparable to the GeForce GTX 280M, slightly slower at a larger node as well. Third fastest MXM 2.1 card after 280M.

    You can flash FX3700M with 280M vBIOS however

    Bumping this thread, my 8700M has packed in and i'm struggling to find anything decent to replace it. There are pretty much no 9800 GTXs left it seems, GTs are rare and the only other available cards are HP or Lenovo FX3700Ms.
