Graphic card upgrade

You have one of the rare 1% of laptops where that is a possibility. Here is your service manual:




The only other "certified" MXM video card which might be a slight upgrade is the AMD Firepro M4000 card, which would require that you buy the card and also a different fan and heatsink. See page 100 of the manual. 


Also the difference between the K2000M and the Firepro M4000 is the former has 2gb ddr3 and the latter has 1gb ddr5.


Not a huge improvement.


MXM video cards are upgradeable but the options are not as wide as on a desktop.


Post back if you need help.
