    Hey guy I'm a newbie here but I have a quick question is it possible or logical to upgrade your video card in the older MBP from the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M to 9600? Also if possible will it make a difference?

    I think the chip is soldered on to the logic board.

    EDIT: Picture shown was from the new Unibody MBP.

    Picture of the older MBP is below.

    As you can see in the following image, the chip is soldered onto the logic board.
