Default Laptop Video Card

Can anyone help me with changing a laptop video card?
i am trying to change a DEDICATED ATI Radeon HD card in my laptop to a better card (possibly NVIDIA) i know the card can be changed, but i don't know how
Also, where can i get laptop cards? and can i change an ATI Radeon 2600 to a NVIDIA model or only ATI?

Will i be able to play CRYSIS?
1.66ghz core 2 duo
3gb RAM (exp. to 4gb)
512MB dedicated ATI

and how much better would a dedicated 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS card work with CRYSIS?
Thanks

like he said, they cannot be changed...they are not removable, the gpu is integrated into the motherboard

I don't think you can, unfortunately. I think it IS possible to run Crysis, at low settings, at maybe 10-20fps. Although your C2D's clock speed is rather low, I think the fact that it has two cores makes up for it as Crysis should take advantage of both.

What's the modle of your lappy? I doubt it'll be possible, but if yours was an Asus, there is a decent chance we can change it.
