Okay, so recently I purchased a new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series (7537).
It came with a pretty hefty i7 and 8 GB of RAM in it.
I want to be able to play basic games with it, but the Intel HD 4400 doesn't cut it
I want to install a new graphics card in the laptop, and I have a very good friend of mine who is better at working with laptops than I am ( more of a tower person)
But I work a very boring night time job and I wouldn't mind being able to play some games in my down time or even while I am visiting a relatives house.

Anyone have any ideas on if I can actually change the graphics card in this laptop without and soldering? Would it void the warranty? And if I can, where can I buy a laptop graphics card?

Only certain high-end laptops have removable/replaceable graphics cards. Any "common" laptop has the GPU integrated into the motherboard or CPU - in this case the CPU

You won't be able to upgrade the video card

Thank you for your help. Can't return the laptop anymore, but shit happens. Still a damn good laptop for simple stuff.
