I recently bought a Vostro 1700 (April). I heard I might be able to upgrade my graphics chip? I've googled but I can't find much information, especially about if my laptop even supports this.

Specs in case you need them:

Screen: 17" 1440x900 Wide Screen WXGA+ with TrueLife

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 (2.50 GHz, 6 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB) (Penryn)

OS: Vista Home Premium

RAM: 4096MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x2048]

HDD: 250GB (5400RPM) SATA

Graphics Card: 256MB nVidia GeForce 8600M GT

Wireless 355 Bluetooth 2.0 Module (up to 3Mbps) with Enhanced Data Rate

Matte Jet Black with 2.0 megapixel camera

90W AC Adapter

Thanks :)
