Ok so i own a HP G70-460US Laptop. I have recently began Playing Games on it that Require a Better Graphics Card. So I was Wonder if it was at all Possible to upgrade it to a better Card. And if so, Is it a Good Idea to attempt to Upgrade it?

doesn't look like it. Integrated graphics. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01760997&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3979153&lang=en

some other systems from that series used an NVidia GPU, but it doesn't look like yours did.

EDIt: I looked up motherboards for it and didn't see any with anything but the Intel graphics.

Intel graphics aren't really design for gaming.
