Hello I've got a question in my mind. I was wondering if I would be able to upgrade my laptop's GPU to play recent games like Battlefield 4, Call of Duty Ghosts and Watch Dogs etc. And when I check the system requirements, usually my GPU fails to meet the needs. My laptop is a MSI GE60-0ND and here's a link to the site http://www.msi.com/product/nb/GE60-0ND.html My configuration is i7-3630QM 2.4 GHZ GTX660M, 8 GB RAM and 750 GB HDD storage with a 15.6" FullHD display. If I would be able to change my graphics card, GTX780M would be highly enough right? Thanks.

This is a laptop we're talking about. You aren't able to change the GPU - it's soldered to the motherboard in almost every case.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that's why most of us dislike 'gaming' laptops so much. They're very expensive, aren't upgradable, don't provide wonderful performance, and grow obsolete much quicker than desktop parts do.

Its basically impossible to upgrade a GPU in a laptop. for the most part they are all soldered to the motherboard itself. If you were able to somehow swap it out with a better one it would create a new issue of powering it since it would most likely need more power if it was a "better" gpu. Things like hard drives and Ram can be upgraded on laptops but upgrading the graphics card generally does not happen.
