Hello! I have for to long been using the dated 660M Nvidia GPU that came with my M17xR4 Alienware, and am looking to get a 970M 6GB model GPU to slap in it. By 'looking to get' I mean I already bought the card haphazardly before coming here, and am now looking for additional information on what may or may not be necessary to get it running on my Laptop with Windows 10 installed, before next month when the card actually gets here. I have read various old threads around the internet that have said several things from "Its a supported card naturally and it should be plug and play" to "You will need to modify the heatsink for it to work, then customize the ini files and boot commands prior to installation to get the card running". So in a way, I was hoping someone with enough experience on here can give me a more up-to-date guide on the matter if they might be willing and able to. Any info or guides are appreciated.
