Rather than a video 'card' your model has the graphics chipset integrated to the system board, so there's no way to upgrade.

 

If game playing is critical, then it's new computer time.  You might want to look into a desktop system rather than a laptop, so you can upgrade it rather than buy a new computer every six months.

I agree with what DrkDemon552 mentioned. Toshiba laptops Video cards are integrated to the motherboard and cannot be upgraded.

Laptops are less customizeable than a desktop computer. Most devices for laptops are integrated to the motherboard because they need to be compact and light weight.

i agree with them...

 

if you wanted to upgrade the video card of your computer, you might want to considering purchasing a new motherboard...

 

which is more likely, will cost you as much as having a new computer...

 

so you might want to weigh your options firs...
