    I'm wondering where I can find a NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512MB GDDR3 card, the one that works with my mid 2010 2.66g mbp. When searching for the video card on google and directly on amazon, ebay and leboncoin (France) I kept getting complete notebooks. I did get this ad. The ad however doesn't say if it's a 256mb, 512mb or 1gb card.
    Can this be deiyphered?

    I saw the bookyard being recommended in another thread. But they seem to sell everything but video cards.

    It feels like it's too common of a product for being so hard to find. What am I doing wrong? Any ideas on where I could look.

    There is no way to upgrade your GPU in a MacBook Pro despite replacing the entire logic board, since the GPU is soldered onto the logic board and you need fairly expensive equipment to do it yourself.

    This is the GPU:

    Are you trying to upgrade the GPU on MBP?
    If so, you cant. And so as the CPU.

    Your only option would be eGPU which I dont really suggest due to the price.

    More importantly the memory is soldered on. Replacing the GPU in the picture would change anything about the memory. You cannot add more VRAM.
