I am no expert when it comes to hardware, but i am good at comparing visual differences when it comes to games ie.anti aliasing, textures etc. I currently have an HP Envy DV6 laptop with an AMD Radeon 7640G graphics card. I was wondering if there was anyway I could install the 6770M into my laptop. Now the Graphics card is kind of big, but is there somewhere I can take it and they could install it to where....it may stick out a little. If not, is there anyway I can get a new graphics card better than the one I already have because I have lots of lagging and FPS drops on some games.

I'm confused, but that isn't hard to do, to me.

The 6770m is a mobile graphics chip, how do you have one in a desktop card?

Ah, I see it is a laptop.

I was confused by huge and sticking out.

First is the laptop one of the very, very,very,very few, that can change the graphics chip?

Those are very uncommon, as you can see from my excessive use of very.

No, the card is integrated, I was wondering if any surgery can be done to do a switch, if not, then I REALLY hope can't wait to get this Alienware 18 soon.

It is possible, but it would take such a high level of skill, and equipment, the cost would be prohibitive.

Probably a factory level, or highly sophisticated, laptop repair shop.
Un-soldering the chip alone would require special equipment.

The only individual that I know of that might be able to do, is Ben Heck, of the Ben Heck show.
He not only has solder re-flow ovens, he makes his own out of toaster ovens.

You could ask him if he would do it for his show, but I suspect, it would be too big a project, for 1 or 2 shows.
