Uggh, Not a tech head at all..... How much is this laptop in question? Buying a branded computer thats "good" generaly cost anywhere between $1000- $1200 USD. And even then they sometimes have the audacity to not include a dedicated GPU

Can build a system for about $700

No and No

Detailed I have no idea what Lucius is, but it won't run BF3, maybe it might run BF2 though.

And no, usually laptops cannot receive GPU upgrades.
