@drycreamer I have a Toshiba? l650 1n5 , my moderboard is a hm55. can i switch that to one with a better grapic card ?

airlobb says:

ATI Mobility Radeon? HD 5470 my grapic card

drycreamer says:

can you find a Toshiba l650 with a better graphics card? probably a Radeon 5650M? if yes, find a motherboard from one of those models? – it would have 4 video RAM chips visible on it instead of the 5470M’s 2 ram chips

drycreamer says:

well, I wouldn’t recommend it, you won’t really see much of a gaming performance increase, and it would cost you like $300 for the i7 :/ the GT640M is the SAME GPU as the 650M and 660M, except it has DDR3 instead of DDR5, I don’t know if Acer made a V3-571G with a? 650M, but if you could find one, you could swap the motherboard out to get the better chipset, but I don’t think the performance gain you would get would justify the $300 it will cost you either.

Can i upgrade the gpu of acer aspire 5755G with nvidia gt630m to nvidia gt650m? you think?

drycreamer says:

nope?

sovietrulez says:

Ok..if? i were to find a compatible motherboard/processor with a gt650m, then yes?

drycreamer says:

I read your model number wrong, sorry about that… you have the g model, so I assume that means you have the GT540M nvidia chipset. the GT630 was also put in the 5755G, but is it just a RENAMED GT540M. there are 3 versions of the GT630, a renamed GT540, a GT555 based one, and the Keplar newer based on. the Keplar GPU’s? only come with the new Ivy Bridge CPU’s so you can’t find a motherboard with the GT650M, or the Keplar based GT630M to fit the 5755G laptop

sovietrulez says:

Yup that’s true, i’ve heard GT540 drivers work with the GT630…mine’s a Gt630 2GB bought in february this year, so i think it’s one of? the renamed ones..anyway thanks for your feedback and time mate! Your videos are awesome

drycreamer says:

thanks? dude!
