Do you think it'd be at all possible to add another graphics card into this??

Other models apparently used to have and NVideo 630, so I figure there should be room..

Just can't bring myself to part with what it would cost me for the Y580 while still having to put up with lugging around 6lbs.
Yet non of the 2 -4 lbs out there can offer a higher graphics card, certainly not for under $1000 it seems.

Honestly.. it being 2013.. I honestly thought such a combo would be possible by now. *Sigh.

No, it does not have a PCI expansion port.

Probably not as this laptop has integrated graphics and with laptops the graphics chip is being integrated into the motherboard since they are so compact. Get a laptop with good dedicated graphics by Nvidia or AMD/ATI...stay away from intel integrated graphics if you want to game
