Z40-70 Graphics Card Upgrade?

Is it possible to upgrade the graphics card on the Z40-70? I think the graphics card that came with it is the NVIDIA GEFORCE 820M graphics card and it isn't able to handle the games I want to play. 

 

Any suggestions? (Besides buying a laptop)

 

Thanks.

There is no graphics card per say on that model, the Nvidia GPU is part of the System Board, and thus is not something that can be upgraded without replacing the entire system board, and from what I can tell from the Hardware Maintenance Manual, the only "possible" upgrade might be to swap system boards with one that had the 840M with 4GB of ram if you could find one, but that is not much of an upgrade given the cost involved.

 

Cheers,
