    I have an early 2013 MBP-r 2.7ghz. Is it possible to upgrade the video card?
    I am aware you can upgrade the HD but not RAM.

    Thanks

    No.
    But technically it's possible to run an external graphics card via the Thunderbolt port.

    No. Like on about 99% of laptops sold in the last 10+ years.

    Technically possible but you have to purchase an addition enclosure. Even then they aren't officially supported, so you are probably on your own if an OSX update breaks some driver functionality.

    Yep, that's why I qualified it with "technically".

    I guess I was just encouraging caution there, given the potential to sink a lot of money without stable results.
