I have a Lenovo G580 with the NVIDIA 610M. Is it possible to replace the graphics card with, for example, a NVIDIA GTX 700M??

I want to replace the graphics card to get able to play Watch Dogs. This is the only spec that I don't have.

I know integrated graphics are not replaceable, these aren't. My integrated graphics are the Intel HD4000 (with wich I can't play Watch Dogs anyway).
Thanks in advance.
Sorry for any english error ^^'.

No, the GPU is connected to the board. you are either going to have to buy a new laptop (I've heard MSI laptops are good), or build a new PC.

Ok, thanks for answering. I think I'll wait for christmas: then Watch Dogs will be cheaper (hopefully) and I'll get the budget for the laptop (I only have 170$ overall...).

$170 will not get you a powerful gaming machine, unless someone is dying to give away a gaming beast. You may want to save up a little more before being able to afford a machine to meet your needs.

I would not even play watch dogs using 610 or 700m on a laptop. It just doesn't have the power to run the game to be enjoyable.
