Graphics Card upgrade for M6800 ?

Brother Printer Forum - forum.printercomparison.com
Hy, My Dell Precision M6800 is equipped with AMD Radeon HD 8950 (isn't this one the FirePro M6100?).

I want to change it for something better, but the NVidia K5100M doesn't seem a really good option comparing the price and the performance add. So, I was thinking more to NVIDIA GTX 980M 8GB DDR5 and I need your advice here guys:

1. can I really put that card in M6800?

2. Does it need different heatsink than the one I already have in?

3. Any BIOS incompatibility? (My BIOS version is A19, updated in 2017)

I need this topic to be as to the point as possible, in the intent to help others which may need graphics upgrade for M6800, as the information available online is scattered and always misleading/incomplete.

Thank you very much guys.
