With the same MXM connector, it shouldn't be too difficult to swap out the new video card for the older one. After you open the chassis and take out the heatsink, all you should need to do is take out some screws, pop out the old card, pop in the new, and put the screws back in. Then use your preferred thermal paste on the GPU die, re-attach the heatsink, close the computer back up again and you're good to go. The only problem some folks have run into is that they need a special BIOS version before they do this in order to recognize the new card. You can check with your reseller or manufacturer about this.
