Alienware M17xR3 Graphics Card Upgrade?

Good morning all, this is my first post so hello!

I've got a M17xR3 which i bought a couple of years ago, and was wondering if there was anyway of arranging with Dell to get a graphics card upgrade. I'm currently running a Geforce GTX 560M which can't really cope with today's games (my fault for being cheap i guess!)

Many thanks for any advice!

Vayral,

Dell does not perform upgrades like this. We can tell you what Dell part numbers to buy through Spare Parts 800-357-3355 but you will need to find a local technician to do the work. This would not be covered under the original Dell warranty.

RFYN9 N12E-GTX2 GeForce GTX580m Kit (Video card 3MF8R + Thermal Heat Sink Assembly V1K2G)

5MKH5 AMD Granville Pro 6870m Kit (Video card V5TGF + Thermal Assemblies VH0YK)

WFWCW AMD Blackcomb XT 6970m Kit (Video card V9XKH + Thermal Assemblies YHP1P)

CK7HW AMD Blackcomb XTX 6990m Kit (Video Card RDRGR + Thermal Assemblies YHP1P)


A double space after a period is no longer needed. Today nearly every font on your PC is proportional.
