Ugh, upgrade your GFX Card in your laptop is difficult. Especially with the lack of room in a laptop, your best bet is to just get a new laptop.

If money isn't a problem just buy a new one for gaming and **** then use your old one for school, then slowly your gaming one will become your school one because the lack of organization will have files mixed up and then you fail your exam because a virus transferred from your USB and now you can't study.

Transfering your data isn't that difficult, I think BestBuy will do it for free if you purchase with them.

Its not a HUGE issue, but id honestly being paying off my student loans instead of buying a whole new computer. Ill be alright for organization, taking a terabyte for school ****. haha well ill take the risk of a virus, ive got some good anti software.

It's pretty much impossible to replace a laptop graphics card, they are integrated into the motherboard and many of them won't even come off. It's also very hard to find them and they are very, very expensive.

a laptop with a removable graphics card is quite rare and even then the only other card you will find to put in the laptop will be the same as the one removed. I'm not 100% sure but i belive laptops gpu's are custom made for each model of laptop..... just buy a new laptop M8....or a 360
