I have a Touchsmart IQ524 with these specs:
- Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T6400 2.00 GHz
- 4GB Ram
- Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset
- 500GB HDD
I do some gaming and I need to upgrade my video card for a game. First of all, is it possible? I know it's difficult since it's an all-in-one. Second, if I can upgrade my video card, what is compatible with the specs I have? Also, I want to know if it is worth going through this or is it cheaper to get a new computer. Thanks for help!

I suggest that you download and run CPUID CPU-z so you can see which graphics solution is in use in your PC.
There are modely of the touchsmart with MXM discrete graphics cards installed and others without.
If CPU-z shows that your integrated graphics is Intel GMA X4500HD then your TouchSmart is using the integrated video solution. If it shows the nVidia GeForce 9300M then there is a discrete graphics card already installed.
