I doubt you will be able to upgrade the graphics card. If its HP, it is most likely that the GPU is soldered onto the motherboard, which means you cannot upgrade. You can't really upgrade in laptops anyway, only a small percentage of models have MXM slots.

As for overclocking, it will increase performance but only marginally, depends how much you overclock.

For increasing FPS in games like GTA4, lower the settings, its a CPU demanding game. I play on all low. I dont know about Wheelman. I used to have an 8600m GS but I didnt overclock it so I cant tell you the best overclock available.

GTA IV is just a badly optimized game. You really need a high end dual core or quad core to run it properly.

8600M GS is ok, its a bit underpowered, I used to have one and it was fine for playing source games and COD4. Crysis, Assassins Creed and Grid performed poorly and were only playable at low resolutions. It is ok if you want to run games at medium settings.
