G73Jw GTX660m GPU Upgrade


Yes, it's possible to upgrade the gpu of the good old G73Jw:cool: I replaced my GTX460m with a brand new Nvidia Kepler GTX660m. This upgrade is not just giving you more gaming power, my battery life is almost doubled now. The GTX660m produces much less heat in contrast to the previously-installed GTX460m, this affects the fan noise level for good:D

Everything you need to know how it's done, click here: G73JW Upgrade with GTX660m

positive:
+increased battery life
+gaming performance
+low temperatures
negative:
-no hdmi output
-(disassemble the G73Jw)
