can I upgrade the graphics card on a hp pavilion g7-1261nr?

[ Edited ]

Is it possible to upgrade the graphics card on my HP Pavilion G7-1261nr laptop to something more suitable for gaming? I'd like to be able to play games such as Diablo III, etc. and my graphics card appears to be the only thing holding me back from running such games.

Hi,

 

Probably we won't be able to upgrade video cards up to 99% of laptops. There are few things which make this work very hard or not cost effective:

 

Need new motherboard, new cooling system and few other things. Short answer: sell your current machine and buy a new games machine.

 

Regards.

I bought this unit only about a week ago mainly to use to keep track of my daily business on the road as a truck driver and play Blu-Ray discs in the truck. Thought I might give some games a go but I guess I'll stick to the PS3 for that for now. Thanks for the answer.
