Can I change my video card in my Dell inspiron 4150 from the ATI mobility radeon 7500 it came with to something with a bit more beef capable of running DOOM3/Farcry? [EDIT]thought I'd better mention it's a laptop[EDIT]
laptops dont tend to let you change the graphics card as manufactures sometimes set the cards up a cirtian way for the flat pannel, then theres the size problem, built in stuff takes less space than somthing that is removable so its easyer for laptop makers to but everything on the board,
So chances are no... i havent looked into your laptop, but generally laptops are harder to up-grade, most only allow ram expansion HDD change and processer change,
I think all of Dell's models are very hard to upgrade because everything is integrated into the Mobo so upgrading a video card for a desktop would require a PCI card and I'm not even sure if mobilities are upgradable... I made my own rig by hand and even I'm nervous about cracking open a Laptop... BTW; Been building my rigs ever since I was 6...
you would have to be really good to do this. If you are not a computer designer or expert then i suggest you just forget it and use your desktop PC for good gaming, its better anyway.
Either you can take your laptop parts out of your computer and put in a desktop like my mac. Or youll have to take it in to be upgraded. Alienware laptops are the only ones that I know of that you can upgrade yourself.
