allright thx for advice, is the 7series upgradable?and is there a laptop that has 8800 gts, like i said i currently have 7 series 7300 gt with 2gb drrm, and i was thinkin for looking for one that has either 8600 or 7900, and i was thinkin if i get one to trade or exchange that has these cards would it be worth, or should i leave it like that for a sec and upgrade it if it's possible,the 7300gt runs pretty well on all high specs but still im not sure if its gonna play good on games like stalker and cryme, couse the laptop is only 2 weeks old.

You really can't upgrade the graphics processors in most laptops. Of the one's you can, they should be sent in to the manufacturer to have it done as it's not an easy process.

For a laptop, the 7300GT works very well as you have already seen.
