    Not a chance.

    IF you already had a dedicated GPU, and IF it was an Nvidia chip with MXM package, and IF it could supply th power, then you might be ok.

    But as it's just onboard right now theres no way to upgrade.

    Not to get your hopes up, but ASUS is eventually releasing an ExpressBus to PCI-E adaptor.
    Still terrible performance though

    Your GPU is soldered directly to the laptop's motherboard. Since laptop motherboards are made specifically for a certain model of laptop, there's really very little chance in changing that out. Not to mention the fact that a laptop motherboard will run somewhere around $450 or more.

    If you want to do any significant gaming, you'll either need a new laptop or a desktop, and I recommend the latter due to the poor heat management in a laptop once you start integrating high performance parts.
