  1. you cant put a desktop card in a laptop, and laptops generally arent upgradeable as far as graphics
  2. Like the other two guys said before, it is not compatible. You will either have to buy a laptop with a dedicated graphics card or buy a desktop. If you buy a desktop, I would recommend looking at Tom's "Best Graphics cards June 2012" to find the best budget graphics card for your needs (ARMA II).
