Very few notebooks use discrete graphics cards. I believe that your notebook isn't one of them; its graphics controller is probably soldered to the motherboard.

The card that you mention is for desktop PCs (PCI-E X16 slot), so you couldn't use it even if the notebook had discrete graphics.

So even if they find a way to alter the whole motherboard then
Which graphics will be best suited for playing Battlefield 3 and assassins creed ??

Alter the whole motherboard?

I have no experience in such matters, but I guess that the most cost effective way would be to get an entirely new PC.

I don't know what you'd need to play the games that you mention. It's possible to buy notebooks with NVidia 680M GPUs (mobile equivalent of nVidia's fastest single desktop GPU), but the two MSI ones that I see at www.newegg.com are expensive (around $2k US).

Your best bet is to switch to a desktop computer if you really want to play graphically intense games. That's what you give up when you choose a laptop, in exchange for portability.
