    Currently running a 6700HQ would prefer a 6820k and a 3gb 970m would prefer 1070 or 1080

    Mostly everything is soldered now, unless you get into those eurocom f5s or the higher clevos, MSI barebones. Even in those cases, the cost to upgrade is high. MXM chips aren't cheap, and the GPUs on those things are actual boards which are high in price if you can even find one.

    If you really want to upgrade, your best bet would be to sell what you have and buy what you want :)
