Hi there,
\015\012
\015\012I believe your laptop is Aspire 5100.
\015\012You CAN'T upgrade your video card, because the video card is on motherboard. it's a chipset.
\015\012For custom graphic card, it's too much, you can't just replace it,
\015\012you have to have some tools to solder the chipset (you can't solder it by hand) on your motherboard. and if your solder is bad, your laptop won't work properly.
\015\012
\015\012If you want to play game, you should buy desktop, in this you can upgrade your video card (many options).
