    I'm on an old Macbook White, the one with the Built-in GMA X3100 graphics card, and I was wondering, is there anyway to install another graphics card over it? I know it's irreplaceable, seeing as it's built in, but I heard that on old dell notebooks, it's possible to install a new graphics card over the old built in one; is there any way to do that on this macbook (even if it means taking apart the frame and exposing the motherboard)?

    There is no way, as there are no connectors to connect the new GPU to. The IGP is soldered onto the logic board, unless you can use a soldering iron meticulously, you're out of luck, and even if you could use a soldering iron, you're still out of luck.
