Not really, AnonyKun. I don't have the need(or the money, for that matter), to upgrade the GPU. So I really didn't bother posting it on the MSi forums. Sorry.
did you ever figure this out? i was wondering the same, would love to do this.
Thank you for your suggestion, will try that.
It depends on what the bios will accept. I'd post this question in the MSI forums and see if the 8xxM series is supported.
Is the GTX 770M on the MSi GT60 2oc-022US upgradable? can someone please let me know. That is, can I upgrade to a GTX780M/870M/880M in future? any help will be appreciated.
