    I have a MBP Core Duo and am wondering if I can get a different or better video card for it? If so how hard would it be to install it? Would it be worth putting in the new Nvidia card rather than keeping the current one?

    that's a good question. from what i've heard, it's very difficult to change the video cards from MBP. Its almost impossible i think because it's attached to the motherboard. but, if you find a way, let me know!! my MBP is getting old...

    That actually makes me a little upset. I figured that they wouldn't have a problem with people replacing the video card.

    You can buy a hacksaw, saw the GPU off the logic board, and sticky tape a new one back on.

    It is all in the name of making components slimmer.
