    Hey guys, I've been wondering if its possible to upgrade the ram used in my video card. I have the 15" MBP. Thanks!

    No, unless you buy another MBP, it is not possible.

    I don't think that's possible since the ram in soldered onto the card itself, with no way to change it.

    For further reference, Video RAM is not upgradable, regardless of it being on a laptop or a desktop video card, as it is soldered straight onto the card.
