Hey,

I brought this Laptop on 30-06-2011 and its done well so far. I know the GPU is in a custom bracket for that card, but I wanted to know if its possible to upgrade the graphics card as this really is the only bottleneck I have. As the laptop was built by PC Specialist and I was hoping someone could give me an idea on what I can do to upgrade the GPU. As this is a custom built laptop in a fairly big case, I would hope this is a possibility.


Here are the specs:

Chassis & Display Vortex II: 17.3" Glossy Full HD LED 16:9 Widescreen (1920x1080)
Processor (CPU) Intel® Core™i7 Quad Core Mobile Processor i7-2820QM (2.30GHz) 8MB Cache

Graphics Card 1.5GB nVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 470M - DirectX® 11 (17.3" Vortex II)
2nd Graphics Card NONE
Memory - Hard Disk 250GB INTEL® 510 SERIES SSD, SATA 6 Gb/s (upto 500MB/sR | 315MB/sW)
2nd Hard Disk 750GB WD SCORPIO BLACK WD7500BPKT, SATA 3 Gb/s, 16MB CACHE (7200 rpm)
RAID NONE
DVD/BLU-RAY Drive SONY BD-5730S 6x BLURAY WRITER & CYBERLINK SOFTWARE
Memory Card Reader Internal 9 in 1 Card Reader (MMC/RSMMC/SD: Mini, XC & HC/MS: Pro & Duo)

Thanks
