    OK, this is a laptop. Unless the laptop has a dedicated pci-e slot like some alienware, you are out of luck. The video is onboard on your system ie you are stuck with what you have.

    FWIW laptops are not really for gaming unless they are specifically built as such with better cooling, etc.

    ExpressCard will not do for gaming, and that laptop appears to be a fine office machine, but certainly not meant for much gaming.

    As drjdriver said, laptops generally not are not built for gaming, or expandability unless you buy a boutique seller who specifically builds for this purpose, and charges a premium for it.
