Upgrade graphics card T430s

Hey guys, just looking for some quick info. Long story short is I would like to play Rocket League on my laptop, according to systemrequirementslab.com the only thing I'm lacking is my graphics card. This is the result it gave me:

 

 

Recommended: NVIDIA GTX 660 or better, ATI 7950 or better
You Have: NVS 5200M
Video Card Click here for the latest Video Card drivers.
UPGRADE SUGGESTED
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
36th percentile
Features: Recommended attributes of your Video Card
    Required You Have
IconPixel Shader version5.05.0
IconVertex Shader version5.05.0
IconDedicated Video RAM2048 MB1024 MB

 

So it looks like I only need a slightly better graphics card (increase the dedicated RAM). I wasn't sure if my graphics card was permanent but I found this old post:

 

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/Upgrading-Graphics-Card-Lenovo-T430s/td-...

 

But this guy wanted to upgrade to what I already have, so am I in the same boat or do I have a seperate graphics card?

 

I don't want to spend much money I just want to be able to burn some time while away on course for a couple months haha.

 

Thanks for any input.

Re: Upgrade graphics card T430s

Welcome to the forum!

 

The graphic card is soldered into the motherboard, you can't replace it. You can buy a motherboard with Nvidia graphics and swap it, (which requires disassembling the laptop and also buying a new cooler)

 

Alternatively you could try an external graphics card. If I remember correctly there were some thread about similar discussions here in the forum.

Unfortunately not, T520 has a 15.6" screen, it will never fit in a T430
