Hi,
First of all you cannot change the graphics card in a laptop computer, they are integrated.
There aren't any external video cards for laptop gaming yet. There is a\015\012standard for removable laptop video cards called MXM, but few laptops\015\012actually use it.

This is the concept for an external video card >>>>

Unfortunately these devices cost a fortune (well over $100)

In conclusion if you wanted to up grade your graphics card you would\015\012need to purchase a new laptop with the graphics card you want.

Alien ware laptops come highly recommended.
