    Hi

    I'm a graphic designer and spend most of my time using Adobe products - Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. I've been having issues with my Mac ever since I stupidly upgraded the IOS to the latest version.

    I was wondering if it is possible to upgrade the nvidia geforce 320m (256mb) to something better or is this a component that can't be replaced?

    Ive just replaced the battery and upgraded the RAM. I'm trying to hold off buying a new machine for as long as I can, if I can.

    Cheers
    Jen

    The video chip is soldered to the motherboard which makes it impossible to replace the onboard chip with a better chip.

    Have you tried downgrading to am older MacOS?

    I've looked into it but its a pretty drawn out process and don't really feel comfortable attempting it on my own.
