I need to find a GeForce GTX 260M to replace the ATI Radeon 3200 HD I currently have in my laptop, but they only seem to be in new laptops and not solely by itself. I'm really not trying to buy a new laptop to rip the card out of it.

P.S. There is nothing wrong with the laptop I'm using, I just hate ATI and want a better card.

perhaps if you were to give us your laptop brand and model number we can help, though unlikly. Unfortunatly, its next to impossible to upgrade graphics cards in 99% of all laptops.

sorry, unless your really good with a soder gun that laptop isnt upgradeable, it is, like most laptops, a integrated video chipset with no room for a dedicated card.

I am a little handy with a solder gun, but my friend is amazing with one.

well, you would have to physically pull the chipset out of the nvidie card, then pull the ati chipset out, and soder in the nvidia one, and even then chances are it wont work-youd be better off with a new computer.

Nothing will match up, contactwise. The chipset in most cases is ball soldered directly to the mobo. Some lappys did have upgradeable graphics options, but only the same brand/series of videocard/chip were swappable.
