I want to also replace the graphics card in my laptop. My laptop is a Sony NR498E, my chipset (Intel GM965 express) says that it offers a PCI express x16 port, which they make graphics cards for. Meaning couldn't I install one? I called Best Buy and they told me no, but it doesn't make sense, I think I should be able to. Anything to help would be awesome.

Any laptop with GMA video has yet to show up with a slot to upgrade the video.
