GeForce8600M GS 512MB GDDR2 & AW M5700


Recommended Posts

I am wondering if anyone knows or has tried to run GeForce8600M GS 512MB GDDR2 in an Alienware M5700(same as Amilo M3438). The cards are MXM-II and come in ACER ASPIRE 4520G/4720G/5520G/4710G TravelMate 5710G/5720G etc. laptops. I wondering if the laptop would handle the voltage requirements and heat generated? I would love to be able to have that kind of card in my M5700....Any Ideals????????? Thx

I'd opt for the DDR3

and the GT not the GS although overclocking would make it a GT

my 8600GT DDR3 runs at 81-83 0c @ max (overclocked) and it seems fine. so high temps are ok

but i have an XPS.. and they tend to run high
