I have an Acer Aspire 5560-Sb613
The video card is NOT integrated.
It has a AMD Radeon HD 6620G with 512 MB Graphics card.
I want to upgrade the video card. I have money to spend and would like a very generous upgrade and spend under $600.
Is it possible to upgrad the video card in this laptop?

Thank you for any help you have to offer.

Best Regards,

Have you been able to confirm if there is actually a discrete video card in your system? I haven't been able to find anything to suggest it has - take-aparts show the 5560 having dedicated video on the mainboard. And specifications I've found say dedicated.

Is it possible you've taken your system's dedicated video to mean a discrete video card?

With a laptop, integrated generally means video incorporated into CPU or support chipset and sharing main memory, dedicated means a chip purely for the video having its own video RAM but normally mounted on the mainboard, and a replaceable card is discrete video.
