Ok, I bought an Asus G72 gaming laptop from Best Buy. It came with a 1GB GeForce GTX 260M graphics card. I am wondering if I can upgrade the graphics card to a GeForce GTX 480M for DX11 capabilities. This is what I know so far:

1: The 260M is an MXM 3 type B board with a TDP of 75 watts

2: The 480M is also an MXM 3 type B board but has a TDP of 100 watts

So my questions are ; Is this swap possible? How hard will it be? Where do I acquire a GeForce GTX 480M?

No its not possible.There are only few laptops that allow VGA upgrades(such as some AW/Sager models)
