Basically you can, nothing can stop you, with a cost and I believe this cost may be more expensive than buying a new computer because you have to take into account:
- New card price, and WHERE you can buy it because laptop cards are not the same as desktop cards. You can't buy from any normal shop,
- Need new system board (may be),
- Need new cooling system because generally speaking more powerfull card pumps out more heat (you want more powerfull card don't you?).
- May need new PSU because your current PSU may not suitbale to the card. (I ordered a machine with Nvidia card and I needed to order a 90W charger at the same time, not the normal 65W charger. They simply rejected my order).
- Labor cost.
- Many, many packets of Asprin.
Hope this helps.
