Want to add a discrete Grpahics card - I6000

Hi

I already ordered a Dell I6000, with intel's GMA 9000. However in future I want to add on a graphics card to the system. Is it possible?
If it is, can someone let me know where the new discrete graphics card can be added? (like which slot if possible).

Thanks

No. The rule appears to not be broken yet.

In spite of that, this laptop will do about everything but the later 3D games.

It's not exactly a chipset issue.

It's simply that to meet price points, no laptop with shared RAM video can afford to offer the space, socket and needed power supply for the mini-PCI card that would have a video card.

The big clue is to see if your laptop offers video card options. If you see "shared video RAM" or "shared RAM" then the rule has been there will be no place to add a miniPCI or other style video card.
