CAN I PUT DISCREET GRAPHICS CARD IN MY DELL INSPIRON 14 3421

This question is not answered

Hi.. Can someone help me. Iwant to know if my Inspiron 14 3421 laptop is capable of handling a discreet graphics card.. I saw a same model of my laptop and it has NVIDIA® GeForce® GT625M with 1GB DDR3 VRAM. So my thinking is its possible. Am i right? Please help me :D

  • Unfortunately most laptops require the graphics to be onboard (embedded within the motherboard).

    It is possible for the same model of your laptop to come with upgraded graphics but in order for you to have these graphics as well, you would have to replace your entire laptops motherboard for one that has updated graphics.

    If I am wrong in this response, please someone correct me.
