I am about to buy HP ZBook 17 G3 with M2000M GPU. It's in quite good price, but the GPU won't be sufficient for me. At another auction I found M5000M GPU on MXM taken out of a Dell Precision laptop. Do you have some advice about upgrade? Will the modifications on VBIOS be necessary? Or will it just plug and play? Maybe you guys have some expierence with this particular configuration :).

Although the Zbook 17 G3 supports the m5000 card as shipped by HP, replacing discrete video cards is not supported not encouraged
however, if you choose to go ahead with it - with unkonwn results, the Maintenance and Service Guide shows the steps to get the video
