Ok so i know this was discussed before, but I'm at the point where I'm ready to do this upgrade this week if at all possible. It was said before that the 660m in the G75VW could be replaced with a 670MX. Now my question here, if anyone could answer it, could we replace the 660m with any of these following gpus.

765
770
780

These all come from g75 series laptops. Please let me know.

Well these 700 series Video cards are soldered in on G750 Motherboards. None that I know of have been installed in the G75 series.

Also there's the issue of system BIOS and vBIOS. A lot of last gen systems from various OEMs won't accept 7xxM cards simply due to the firmware.

Search @Dreamonic Threads, he documented a repasting a few weeks ago, there were other comments in the same thread.

sorry but the GPU's look like this (http://i.ebayimg.com/t/ASUS-G75V-G75VW-VGA-Graphics-Video-Card-Nvidia-GTX-670M-3GB-GDDR5-N13E-GS1-LP-A1-/00/s/MTA2NlgxNjAw/z/omAAAOxyJs5RcEES/$T2eC16F,!wsE9suw))uMBRcEERgC2!~~60_35.JPG) because they are custom made PCB's from ASUS

you have to search for asus 670m or asus 670mx on ebay
