You should be able too. With a good integrated card, you might just be able to hit low settings. Best of luck!

Well it's very unlikely you can upgrade that laptop. Any fast-middle class graphics like the HD 7700m series would be good if you can.

No, most laptops' components are soldered together. Plus I expect the motherboard would be different too.
