Inspiron E1505 Video Upgrade - 7800Go?

Post by Sovereign » Thu Oct 11, 2007 11:46 am

I know there are like five million questions on this topic, but I have a specific method and a specific question.

I know that the E1505 can be upgraded from X1300 to X1400, but to me that's not enough. I want more. I know that the E1705 can easily be upgraded with a 7800Go, which is more than enough for a puny 1280x800 screen that is on my E1505. Of course, the massive heatsink doesn't fit in the E1505. Now, the graphics chips can be disassembled, i.e. the card separated from its heatsink. Does anyone know if it is possible to take one of these 7800Gos and strip its heatsink off, then attach the heatsink that was on my X1300, and then stuff it back into my E1505?

I know I would need a 130w AC adapter if this works, and I have a 9-cell battery already.
