I am going to be purchasing a G750JM in a couple days. I did search around in the forums but didn't see my questions. I want to essentially turn this notebook into the specs from the G750JZ model.

Questions:
1. Is it possible to upgrade the GTX 860M to a GTX 880M and where I could find one for purchase? Issues with doing this?
2. If I do upgrade the GPU, will I need to get more powerful heatsinks/fans?
3. I would like to know which RAM would be recommended. I will be bringing it up to 16GB or 32GB. Haven't decided.
4. I plan on dual-booting a linux distro (Ubuntu variation) alongside Windows 8. Are all drivers available to make this possible?
5. Is there a spot to add a SSD?

This seems like an awesome forum and I look forward to the feedback and advice. Thanks guys!

Not one reply on the actual rog forums? Maybe getting this laptop is a bad idea. Any particular reason why no one has given me the slightest bit of advice?

Because this question has been asked so many times. Do a search...
