What card are you thinking of swapping 2?

Supported by Dell for your model:

96RJ4 Nvidia GTX260m
4WGVV Nvidia GTX260m Secondary + Cable

X648M Nvidia GTX280m
X203R Nvidia GTX280m Secondary + Cable

G51FX AMD 4870m XT
NHCHW AMD 4870m XT Secondary + Cable

Are you going to have 2 or 1 installed?

Are you going to try and install an unsupported GPU like this guy

What BIOS version are you on?

I'm sry, I did not make myself clear, I'm just wanting to update the 260m video card to the newest driver, I plan on selling the m17x this spring, and going back to Alienware Desktop (I had problems the last video update) and was looking for help.
