Upgrading graphics card to GTX 765M in Y510p, good idea?

2014-04-05, 7:43 AM

So I was wondering if it would be a good idea to upgrade from GT 750M to GTX 765M?

I bought my Y510P last year and it's pretty neat, but there are some games I gotta run in Normal for them to play smoothly... Watch Dogs is comming and I really want to be able to play it in at least High settings.

 

I would probably buy a fan for the UltraBay to avoid over-heating.

CPU: Intel Core i7-4700MQ 2.4GHz (8 CPUs)

RAM: 8GBs

 

1. Can it be done?

2. Is there a notable difference between GT 750M and GTX 765M?

3. Will my laptop be able to take advantage of it?

 

Thanks!

I would also be interested to know if this is possible. I am interested in streaming games to my NVIDIA Shield Tablet, which apparently cannot be done (for reasons the internet can't seem to explain) with the 750M SLI config that came with the laptop. Apparently this requires a GTX card, despite the 750M having the seemingly requisite H.265 decoder.

The primary GPU in the Y510P is soldered to the main board.  It is not possible to replace it.
