    Hello,

    i have opportunity to buy HP Pavilion G6-2170ec laptop and i want to ask if it will fit/work to replace its AMD Radeon HD 7670M/2GB by the Nvidia GeForce 840M ?
    Can You link to some website which shows/compares these graphics cards dimensions/socket types so one see whether it will fit regarding the size and whether it will work on that laptop motherboard? I have no idea on how to discover that as i am not a computer tech pro.

    Afaik laptop GPU's are soldered to the motherboard and can not be replaced, there are some exeptions but they contain desktop GPU's.
