I have an Acer Aspire 5750Z laptop but the graphics are very low like 128 MB Dedicated Memory, and I want some GAMING. Today's games require at least 1 GB Dedicated Memory. I have my old Graphics Card which is ATI Raedeon HD 5450 Series 2 GB DDR3 which is not being used now which would be enough. Can I connect it by using a PCI-E Slot?

I did not read or search on google for information on this.

I also do not want to buy a new laptop for gaming and I also do not want High-End GPU names or information. (Because Thats Happened a lot of times)

If there is any way to connect please help.

If your laptop had an ExpressCard slot, then it may be kinda, sorta possible.
As it doesn't appear to....

Does it have a PCI-E slot? No.

So it seems you are out of luck trying to shoehorn a card designed for a desktop motherboard into a laptop. There is no connection for it.

I also do not want to buy a new laptop for gaming and I also do not want High-End GPU names or information. (Because Thats Happened a lot of times)

What you are contemplating is akin to fitting a Gulfstream jet engine into a Honda Civic. Some things just do not work.

I don't think that it has an ExpressCard slot.

By the way, I also do not want to buy a new laptop for gaming and I also do not want High-End GPU names or information. (Because Thats Happened a lot of times)

By saying that, I meant that I had posted some threads and got names of GPUs and other things related to performance which I din't want.

Thanks for the help.
