Has anyone had experience with this or can anyone say if the idea is conceptually sound. The 610M laptop is under warranty and I'd prefer not to pry it open before I'm sure the warranty is worth voiding.

If you are sure of things, swap the cards, making darn sure not to damage the ribbon cable ( it is fragile ).
While still dissembled, fire up the laptop to see if it worked.
If it starts beeping at you, and has no display, swap the cards back,
I've neverpermanently damaged a laptop swapping out graphics cards, however some folks have, so do it at your own risk.
