View Full Version : Swap GPU from gtx 260 to gtx 460

I read similar threads here. However, no one wrote about change of similar cards of asus.
I wonder , it's possible to swap GPU in my G51J laptop? I think a change to the original asus GPU. Asus uses a reversed card so you can change only their own card. Now i have gtx 260 and I would like to change to a gtx 460 . This card is installed in asus G53SW. I verify MXM and TDU. IMHO both cards have the same. In this connection should not be a problem in power, cooling and mounting. The only unknown is the size and shape of the card and the placement of components. If someone can provide the photo, dimensions, etc of asus gtx 460 card?
Do You think is it possible?
Tx for help.

I'm pretty sure that it's not possible. This question has come up before with various models and the answer has been almost universally no go. ASUS customizes the heat sinks and card layouts so even though the interface is the same the heat sink isn't compatible.
