    Hi all, and thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I own a Toshiba Satellite which i use for gaming. Does anyone know if its possible to upgrade the graphics performance on this model?

    I believe the speccific modal is a L300 149, but this is based only on the toshiba website and my knowledge of the specs (screen size, harddrive etc).

    On the it says the L300 149 use a IntelĀ® GMA X3100, and in my Graphics Properties/information it says i'm using a Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family.

    As you can probably tell, I have only the slightest idea of what these mean, so any help or advice would be appreciated.

    Many many thanks

    No you can't upgrade the video card on that laptop since it uses an integrated card and can't be removed. You would need a laptop with a dedicated video card like an ATI or Nvidia card.

    The laptop I am going to be buying has a decent video card and is cheap.


    Asus has some good extended warranties on their site and you have up to a year after purchase to get one so it gives you plenty of time.
