    I'm not sure but if I'm correct, I believe the graphics chip is integrated into the combo drive correct? So If I want to replace my X1300 to the new nvidia 9400 chip, would i have to replace the drive? And is that possible? If so, where can I buy the drive?

    Hi, unfortunately it's built into the motherboard (aka logic board), not the combo drive. You'd have to replace that to replace the graphics, and the MCP79 (which contains the 9400) is the best one that's built into a MacBook at the moment. You might be able to replace your logic board with one from a new white macbook, but it would be very expensive to do (and even then I'm not sure it would work).
