Adding the Nvidia NVS 4200M to Latitude E6420

I just purchased a Latitude E6420 from the outlet store.  It is configured with the standard Intel® HD Graphics 3000.

What are the steps to upgrade the graphics to the Nvidia NVS 4200M setup?  How difficult is the install?  Any tricks?

Where can I obtain the video card?

Anyone done this??

Thanks!

Rich

You'd need to replace the entire system board (which will void your warranty) -- expect $400 or more just for the board.

As ejn93 mentioned, you have to replace the motherboard and then purchase the upgraded graphics card.  The reason for this is that the Intel graphics card is integrated into the motherboard.  There is no way for it to accept the 4200M.
