I would like to know if it's possible to upgrade the ati hd 5870m to either 6970m(75-100W) or 6990m(100W).

Asus g73jh's supply is 150W, so you must also upgrade your power supply to at least 180W is it true?

ati hd 6970m and 6990m have the same interface as 5870m (MXM 3.0) and have the same dimensions so I guess they will fit inside the laptop.

My question is: If you can replace your 5870 to either 6970 or 6990 will the newer cards be compactible with the system? and what modifications you must do, so the laptop can support it.

nope, thermal heatsinks are not compatible
