Can you Upgrade Graphics on HP Pavilion?

Pavilion 15

HP Pavilion Notebook-15-ab277cl (ENERGY STAR)

 

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 - 5500U CPU @ 2.40GHz  2.39

64x-based processor

1TB hardrive

HD display

WIndows 10 Home

NO Pen or Touch Input

5500 Intel Graphics.

 

I'm a big time gamer and wan't to know if i can get an external graphic card, or just a new graphic card. I can run something like Batllefront farely well, but GTA5 is a very big and complex game and my computer has trouble rendering it all. What can I do to make it run better?

Hi,

 

No, unfortunately this is not an option for many laptops (could be over 95%)  including yours.

 

Regards.

Hi,

 

Sorry, the statement is for me. Upgrading this way, laptop would become a desktop and with that amount of money I can build a much better desktop for games in term of price/performance.

 

For you, you can try, it's your money.
