View Full Version : G73SW-XA1 Graphics card

I've been looking around and i can't find anywhere with a concrete answer, is it possible to switch out my graphics card? I only saw one thread here that said maybe, and even then they didn't help much in replacing it even if you can. The 460M really doesn't cut it, i don't want to spend a ton of money on a completely new desktop, but i want to be able to play things at least on normal settings with decent speed. it's getting to the point where even low settings are choppy.

Basically, can i replace it, what should i replace it with, and how can i do that?

Hello. Concrete answer is yes but with necessary modding of both heatsink and vbios. I have a 680m in my g73sw and still use laptop with no hitchs of any kinds whatsoever. I had another g73sw and even g73jh upgraded with 770m. Both laptop vere sold eventualy here where I live. Here is my 3dmark11 score with 680m: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/7630058
