Upgrading graphics card on a Lenovo 3000 N500 laptop

2009-03-26, 3:29 AM
Is a 'BFG - NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ OC 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card' compatible with this laptop? If not, which type of card should I look for to be compatible? And how do I install it? Right now I have 2 'Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family' graphics cards installed.

Laptop graphics cards tend to be soldered on. Some have replaceable units which utilize a manufacturer proprietary port. Others have what's called a MXM slot which are somewhat interchangeable.

 

However, considering your laptop was manufactured with integrated graphics, it is highly unlikely that you will be to change/upgrade to a better graphics card.

 

I do believe that there will be a better solution in the future. Read about MXM 3.0 standard. It's quite promising.
