Is this graphics card compatible

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad R61e laptop. Here are the specs.

Running Windows XP Professional 2002 (32-bit)
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.20 ghz processor
2 GB of RAM
Current graphics/video card (I don't know if they are the same or not) is a Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family or an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (mobile).
80 GB hard drive.

With the info above, can anyone tell me if this laptop is compatible with an NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics/video card?

Any help will be appreciated.

  1. You can't stick a desktop gfx card in a laptop.

    ThinkPads are, to my knowledge, not upgradeable except for memory.

    You want an upgradable laptop, you have to buy from a boutique vendor.

  2. And sometimes not even boutique notebooks are upgradable - and it's expensive to do so.

    When getting a notebook, get the best GPU you can afford if gaming.
  3. Well I got this computer for school and it handles some game pretty well. Just some games won't run because of the current graphics card and I was just curious if it was possible to upgrade.
    Thanks for you answers.
