Can the 780 video card out of the new Alienware M17x fit AND work in the M17x-R4?

The 780m will fit (MXM 3.0b), but it will not work without some .inf modifying...etc

Sell 680m and get a 780m, the difference might not be huge, maybe $200-$250?

If you are still wanting to upgrade you can get the modded drivers from laptopvideo2go but I'm going to see what the next gen graphics cards have to offer next year
