Hi, 

Below are the cards that we've tested and validated for the Alienware 17 R1 system.

AMD, Radeon R9 M290X
nVidia GeForce GTX765M
nVidia GeForce GTX770M
nVidia GeForce GTX780M

We have seen users who posted their results on non-validated video card upgrades. You can find this information on support forums like this one and Alienware Arena.

Hello there!

 

Can you please tell me the compatible GPU's for the 17" model? (i think the model is just 17", no R's) the model came from factory with a Gforce 860m 2gb.

 

Thanks,

Luís
