No such thing, you can't upgrade laptop graphics cards in most cases

Actually there are Gaming Laptops, usually nvdia and radeon sells them, but a laptop that can be upgraded is like Kalganized said, really rare and unusual...

Yeah, I have one. I could upgrade the laptop graphics on mine (standard MXM slot), but I knew what I was buying, so.

Basically, if you own major name brand laptop like HPs and Dells, forget about it.

Depends on what you define affordable, and whether you want laptop or desktop

I know, but do you know what it would cost for a new desktop that could run this game smoothly?

If you were to go as dirt cheap as possible, about $450 (not including OS, monitor, etc. Only the desktop itself).

Another gotcha: You have to build it on your own with parts. Pre-built PCs at that price range won't come with good graphics card.

spend 1200 bucks on complete system that you wont have to upgrade for years. and will run all games on high gfx settings with 0 studder and fps drops under 40fps
