Hello,

I am new to this forum but I am a regular on the Alienware Arena forums. 

I am an owner of the Alienware m17xR3 model and I am having problems with my video card.  It's safe to assess that the video card is dead. 

I have purchased a replacement video card (HD 6990m) through eBay and I guess the card I purchased is not compatible with my m17xR3.  The seller stated that it worked fine in his m17xR2 though.  I even found a friend who has the exact same rig and set-up as me.  He let me run all the tests I needed and my final conclusion, again, is that the video card is not compatible with the m17xR3 (sorry for repeating that statement). 

Can anyone recommend where I can find a replacement card other than eBay?  There are very limited options on eBay and I prefer a brand new video card or someone who had the card working in a m17xR3. 

I am aware that the card is over 2-years old and I'm going by a long-shot, but does AMD have any 6990m video cards?  Where does the surplus go?

Thanks,

-GiantSekki
