The 8700 is a type III (which currently only fit in 17" and larger notebooks).

The Acer 5920 is a 15" notebook, so it would not support a type III 8700 :)

The 8600 is still a pretty decent card, and while the 8700 would preform better than it - it would not be by a hugely significant amount (depends on what you are using it on).

What is it that your 8600 doesn't do well enough that you think the 8700 would do better?

:) ...video card in 5920g uses gddr2 and and after 2 years may be it can't open games easily as today.and i am living in turkey.here electronics are so expensive because of taxes(for example ASUS G1S ' s price is 2830 $ in here).i thought that may be i can change video card later,and so i won't have to give a lot of money again for a new one...

somebody says that,there is a slot in 5920g.can it be for SLI...and so,can i use a second video card in my acer.

Hi,

It is a single MXM slot. If you are lucky, there will be something like a 9600GT in two years time and you could upgrade to that.

I'm currently still trying to find 8600 cards that actually work on other MXM platforms. So I really can't comment on price or details right now.

Depends on why you need them. They seem incompatible with "older" mxm hardware.

I read about nvidia planning to introduce the 8800 into notebooks and will consume only 22W. There is a tiny possibilty that this one could be a MXM II if it only consumes 22W but it is more probable that the next MXM II card will be the 9600.

the 8600 with gddr3 is about 15% faster. I have the C90s with a 8600GT 512MB gddr2 and reach a 3dmark06 score of 3350 but I run it overclocked at 500gpu/475memory clock (stock is 475/400) and the 8600GT 256MB gddr3 gets a 3dmark06 score of 36xx without overclocking it that means it is prossible to reach a score of 42xx with it.

There are some 15" that have type III like asus Z81sp.
