Default help with laptops.....please help me :(

Hello, im fairly new here...but i have a comptuer prob lem

im at boarding school here and my parnts have givin me a Dell inspiration 8100 computer.....its faily nice except it has very very little video card space. My problemn lies here. I am a dedicated video gamer and likes to buy new games.

My laptop owever only has 16 bit cideo card so i cannot play many games. My sollution was to simply buy a new video card for my computer. However, one of my friends told me you cannot put new video cards into a notebook.....

I am here to ask those who know a tshitload more stuff about computers than i do..can you put a video card into a laptop?the video card is the same rband just a higher Bit size (32)


thankx in advance
