    I currently have an Early 2011 MacBook Pro 13 inch. I have Windows 7 on bootcamp and I am looking for a way to raise my FPS on games like Skyrim.


    Graphics Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB
    Memory 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    Processor 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7
    Hard Drive 500GB Serial ATA; 5400 rpm


    Is there such a thing out that can raise my graphics(external graphics card)? Or do I need to upgrade something else? Or is it just simply I need more memory in my bootcamp partition?

    Thanks in advanced

    My guess is that you need to upgrade to a computer with a dedicated graphics card. That's your best bet for increased FPS.

    Thunderbolt GPUs are available which should improve performance over the inbuilt HD3000 significantly.

    Easiest, quickest and cheapest solution that I'm surprised nobody has mentioned yet;

    Lower the settings.

    8gb ram = 512mb hd3000. do it.
