I would contact Eurocom/Upgradeyourlaptop (Ebay), But you are looking at around $720 - $760 to upgrade it yourself.

No offense to the OCC community but I'm a member at Notebookreview for a reason. Check with niffcreature over there and see if he either has a 7970m or can tell you where to get the cheapest one. He's kinda the mobile GPU guru on NBR.
4 out of 6 weeks of my OTR training down then I get my own, brand new 2013 Freightliner Cascadia

I am extremely grateful to Bosco, Ccokman, Nvidia, Corsair, Intel and Mushkin as winning the hardware is making my life far easier as it has helped tremendously with the transition from P/T Little Caesars employee to becoming an OTR truck driver. Again, than you all and I will be showing my gratitude this coming Xmas

I haven't checked in a couple months but if AMD still hasn't fixed their Enduro problems DO NOT get a 7970m for a p170em. Get the gtx680. I dropped my 7970m faster than a bag of sh**.
