Hey there,

I recently bought an ASUS k43sd and i am quite disappointed with the performance of the graphics card (Geforce 610m 2GB). It has an i7 2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz tho.

I would like to improve the performance such that I would be able to play games(Batman Arkham City, etc) smoothly. I was thinking about upgrading my graphics card(Is that even possible? LOL). If that's not possible, would overclocking help(Obviously, but to what extent?) Any other ideas to improve framerate?

It is highly unlikely that you would be able to upgrade the GPU. Most laptops have the chips welded to the motherboard and cannot be removed. The only company I know of that has removable GPUs is Alienware.

Overclocking on laptops is not really a good idea since the whole thing is cooled by just one fan and doesn't have good airflow. It probably won't boost the performance more than 10% anyway. Try at own risk.
