I got a decent Gateway t-Series laptop from a friend for cheap. The main thing that it is lacking is a video card... so is it possible to upgrade?

I will try to give all the information needed.

Gateway
Model: T-6321
Intel Pentium Dual 1.73GHz
3GB RAM
Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family

If i can upgrade then im also curious about the processor. With no gaming its a fine processor but how good is it?

Any input helps
thx.

Some laptops have a vidio card slot.
Unfortunately yours does not.

So the short answer is , No , You can't add a video card.

Try googling for the CPU upgrade info.
OCZ StealthXstream 700W,Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R , E8500, Arctic Freezer Pro 7, 3GB G.Skill PC8500,Gigabyte Radeon HD 4850 OC [1GB ], Seagate 250GB SATA II X2 in RAID 0, Samsung SATA DVD burner.

You may not be able to upgrade the CPU. Some manufacturers solder the CPU directly to the motherboard.
