That all looks pretty simple. I didn't notice him repasting anything though..........

I may want to put a GTX 680M in mine one day but I'm not 100% sure if it will be compatible with my R3.

The thermal paste was pre applied on the heatsink, if you look close you can see the square of paste on it @ 40-43sec

I read that the 680m can work but isnt supported by dell. You have to do some INF modding to get it to work tho..

Ahh.....my eyes don't always work too well :)

I have no idea what INF modding is so maybe I should leave it alone :eek: The 680M's are around $800 anyway but it would interest me in 6 - 9 months.
