  1. Hi I have an hp pavillion dv6629ca with an integrated graphics card and i wanted to upgrade so i can play some good games. I believe i have pci-e slots but im not 100% sure. I what is a good grapgics card to upgrade to, how much it is, where to buy it, and if any stores can upgrade for me because im a not that tech savvy.

    thanks in advance.

    edit: here are the current specifications

    Intel core 2 duo T5250 @1.50ghz
    2gb ram
    mobile intelR 965 express chipset family
    and im runnign windwos 7 professional 32bit.

    will upgrading the ram cost alot? and will it be worth it also?

    I don't think that you have a PCI-E slot. Replacing / adding graphics cards to laptops is not possible in 95% cases. I suggest that you contact HP to find out if it's possible.

    Your laptop does have an Express Card 54/34 expansion slot. However, I'm not sure if you can add a video card through it.
