Generally you can't change the graphics card, as it's actually a chip soldered onto your motherboard.

You could replace your cpu with one that has a gpu built onto it...AMD calls theirs APU's...not sure what intel calls theirs.

Then you need to make sure your laptop mobo will accept or be able to use said chip.

But like FuturDreamz stated....not likely. If your looking for a laptop to play games and high quality and GPU intensive games, then you should be looking for a gaming laptop. Those laptops are quite pricey...anywhere from 1K to 2K in US dollars.

Forget it. It will not work. The heat of any higher performance component will kill you. Normal laptops are no gaming machines. The whole cooling system is not layed out for that. Get a desktop. There you have a lot of options.

And guys, don't encourage him to do that. He'll kill his nice little laptop.

Is this a good one cause im not familiar with any good Graphic Cards these days i always see people talking about Nvidia and how its really good. Also how can i tell if a graphic card can be support with my computer like if it will run properly or the graphics card will over run my computer making other processes slow

absolutely agree - don't tamper with it..
you'll wreck it completely


If you want to play those hi-spec games, you'll need to get a hi-spec laptop..
