Is the G42-475DX capable of having a newer graphics card put in?

Hi,

 

It's not really possible to upgrade the graphics adapter in your notebook - although it's called a 'card', it is in reality physically soldered to the Motherboard.

Is there any replacement graphincs chipsets available? I can remove it and solder the new one back in. If you know of any, will you please put link(s) in this thread? Thank you very much!
