Hello! Thank you for reading.

A year ago when I turned 18 I was gifted a gaming laptop as my last family birthday gift. I'd like to upgrade it but I know nothing about it.

Here are the specs?


It's a Asus Gaming Laptop from Republic of Gamers.

The thing I am worried about is the Intel card, if it will prevent me from upgrading it. What I want to do is upgrade to a GeForce GTX 970 and use my old GeForce as a dedicated physix card, (if that would even be possible.)

But I know nothing about computers. I know what I want but not if it's possible, that is the situation.

I would appreciate some advice. Thank you kindly for reading!

It's a laptop, you can't use two card in it unless it came with SLI enabled from the factory.

Not sure what you mean about the Intel card, the onboard video is in the CPU, it's not a separate card.

You may be able to stick a GTX 970M card in the system and have it work, but it may not. You definitely can't install just a regular GTX 970 card in the laptop, a desktop 970 is about 4 times taller than a laptop case.
