    I do hope this is not a redundant post, but I dint find anything on it. Didnt say it wasnt here, just that I didnt see it.

    I want to upgrade my graphics card if there is anything available. So far ive gone to 8gig ram and a 500gig 7200 rpm internal. Appreciate the help as always. Thank you, Jabberjibber;)

    you cant, the only upgradables on a macbook are the HD and ram ;) you could always upgrade to a MBP for the better card ;)

    I have the MBP, just got it 2 months ago and love it for the most part. Still getting used to the switch is all.

    I didn't think you could upgrade the card in most laptops anyway?

    You are correct. Generally, only the super-high-end laptops that use desktop parts can have their GPUs upgraded, and even then doing so isn't at all easy.

    Even if people have upgraded the dedicated card (though it would be very hard) you MBP used integrated graphics, it is part of the motherboard. It can't be done i'm afraid.
