Ok I got a laptop and am a desktop person. I know video cards aren't standard in laptops. But I was looking at the 860 and 880m cards and they have a similar set up as the 660m. I see a few people have done he 660m to 670m upgrade and wanted to know if this was at all possible. I've found full 860m including heatpipes on ebay for 300 bucks and willing to spend that to upgrade.

Well what are you going to try to fit it into? The 880 has a different case MB 750 to fit in all the heat sink etc

The same one in your specs I believe. A g75vw and I'll settle for the 860 or 7 series. I'm just wanting a little more and I don't want to have to sell this and spend 1200 on a similar laptop when I got this for 600

Well the G75VW came with either the M660 3D or M670 so that Mod is not a problem. I think you'll have issues trying to put an m880 in a VW, if you try it let us know how it works out.

I can't find any that came with the 760 just the 670. I think I may try the 670mx upgrade though.

probably just worth scraping it and getting a new one I guess.
