    Can I upgrade the graphics cards in my mbp intel core 2 duo 2.66ghz? They're not bad now, but I have the settings turned down midway on most of my games. I tried searching but dont know how to change it or which to buy. I searched on here, google, and the nvidia website.

    any suggestions or info?

    thanks!

    You cannot upgrade the graphics on most notebooks because of the cramped space (connectors take up a lot of room).

    Your best bet is to live with what you have, or buy a whole new machine.

    I think kushes was being sarcastic your price point is a new computer. The reason for this is laptop GPUs are soldered on
