Unhappy Upgrading graphics card.

Hey guys,

I've signed up onto the forum just 5 minutes ago to ask you guys a question.
I've got a laptop that has a Nvidia GT 330M, which is a pretty good card but I've got some major issues with it.
It's laggy as crap with games that came out last year and I do not like that at all.
So I was thinking, should or can I upgrade it?
Does anybody have an idea if I can upgrade this or not? And can anybody give a good reccomendation of which graphics card I should buy (Price range: 300~800 euro's)
Thanks a lot.

What is your laptop maker and model number? For example, dell inspiron 1545.

Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.

Quick answer, NO. If your laptop has a integrated card, then definitely no. As Ghost said.

Well the other thing you can do with those 800 euros is simply build a desktop, if your primary thing is gaming, you would be better off with it anyways.
Gaming PC Build:

NZXT Phantom | Intel i5-3570k 3.4Ghz | Asus P8Z77-V | CoolerMaster V6 GT | Ripjaws
8GB 1600mhz | EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2GB | Corsair HX750 Watt |SB 1.5TBHDD
7200 RPM+WD 500GB 7200RPM | OCZ Vetex 3 120GB SSD | Lite-On 24x Reader/Writer/Burner Drive |
Razer Naga MMO Gaming Mouse | Razer Lycosa Gaming Mouse | Logitech G930 Gaming Headset
