    Unfortunately, no. You cannot install a discrete graphics card into a laptop. There is no physical space for the cards. While the laptop specifications may state PCI-E slots, they are likely Mini PCI (mPCIe) slots that are already taken by your wireless card and webcam.

    P.S. Your links don't work. To format them properly you need to enclose the URLs in URL Tags:

    
    [url=insert url link here]Link Information[/url]
    
    As an example
    
    [url=http://www.newegg.com/]Newegg.com[/url]
    
    

    Which looks like this: Newegg.com
