Dell Inspiron 1501 Video card upgrade?

This question is not answered

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501. My current video card is ATI Radeon Xpress 1150, can I upgrade to a better card? I have done some searching but can find no information. I have been trying out some online games and a recent one I have interest in requires:

Video: 256 MB Shader Model 3.0 Graphics cards such as GeForce 8 class card or higher, ATi 3000 series or higher and Similar chips from other manufacturers

Will this laptop be able to upgrade to the required card or do I need a whole new computer?

 

Thank you in advance for any help!

  • You need a new notebook.  The model you havre is not upgradeable -- very few notebooks now are upgradeable.  Among the Dell systems, the only ones that are video upgradeable are the M1730 and high-end Precision mobile workstations.
