Does anyone know of a place to buy PCIe video cards for laptops? I have a GeForce 7900 GTX that went bad in mine. It has 2 run in SLi mode. Yes it IS a laptop.

I was ViciuosPC. They went out of business. So the answer is no. No warrantee, no support, no parts. So I was hoping to find an alternate source.

so far i heard you can't upgrade graphics in a laptop, but i think some can, but
if you think about it, it would be better to get a new laptop, new laptops have geforce 8 in them, go see: http://www.dell.com/content/products/co ... dhs&~ck=mn

you can indeed upgrade the video card in some laptops provided they are using the nVidia nVention of MXM slot. I have an Alienware M9700 that has two of those slots that you can run in SLI and upgrade to newer cards. You can probably buy one from Alienware, but you would need to make sure your notebook used the MXM slot for its graphics card.

Personally, I prefer HP to Dell. The quality seems to be better, and so does the pricing.

However, I don;t think you can get a new video card anywhere. THey almost have to come through the original vendor.
