I'm looking to replace my motherboard w/ M480 with out on board Intel HD, My laptop has the power to play video games, the only thing stopping me in the onboard Intel HD. Is there a dedicated video with this chipset motherboard? I would hate to throw away this computer... just because the video is garbage and not supported (yes its a laptop)
Look at ebay, everyone is dumping their laptops with Intel HD
In regards to your question, please be aware that gaming does not require a motherboard change in your system. What you are probably missing is a high end discrete graphics controller, such as ATI or NVidia. You'd need to check with your laptop manufacturer to find out if this would work and fit on your system.
For a list of supported games on your controller, please refer to this website:
