    SO i have a mbp, with a 2.4 intel duo with NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT and Installed Video Memory 256 MB... (non unibody) i was wondering if it would be possible to upgrade my video card to the 512...

    Not without entirely replacing your logic board. The 8600 isn't really fast enough to make 512MB worthwhile anyway.

    No, as the GPU is soldered onto the logic board, thus irreplaceable, unless you get a new logic board.
