    Hi!

    I want to upgrade my MacBook (late 2008 version) so I can play games (i.e. Skyrim) in BootCamp :)

    I was wondering if an Intel Core i5 and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 would fit in the computer?
    And if not, what's the alternative?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can't change the CPU/GPU in your MacBook. The alternative is to buy a newer computer.

    Oh :(
    Thanks for the quick reply, though!

    What I really want is a higher fps - will that go up, if I get a new graphic card?

    It would be impossible for you to change your CPU and Graphics Card.. Your macbook wouldn't work right if you did.

    I really hate upgrading. Everytime I upgrade my MacBook, this is something missing from my MB:mad:
