Bit of a noob here. I've got a dead HD7970m in my M17x R4 & want to know if I can replace it with a HD8970m & if so, would it be a straight swap/plug n play? Or is there anything else I need be aware of or do to make it work? Cant play any games or edit photos at present.

Any & all comments/pointers greatly appreciated.
