dell precision m4600 the graphics card NVIDIA Quadro 1000M upgrade

I have a laptop dell precision m4600 the graphics card inside is NVIDIA Quadro 1000M with 2GB GDDR3 dedicated memory, plus intel graphics HD 3000. Is it possible to upgrade the NVIDIA Quadro 1000m to meet a 3D VERY complex modeling design which I am working on it at an engineering software?

because i have some 3d drawings work slowly in performance with the existing graphics card.

if so, please provide me by the list of varies upgraded graphics cards based on dell recommendations on my laptop.

No you would need a top of the line laptop or a desktop with a separate high powered video card. Your laptop graphics are integrated on the board--not removable cards. Read-- Upgrade Video

thanks for your replay, but i already downloaded the laptop manual from this link http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/precision-m4600/manuals

and it decribe the method of removing the heat sink and the graphics card. so are you sure it is not possible

It is possible to replace the GPU on this model -- the ones Dell shipped:

It may also be possible to use other cards, but since the system never shipped with them, it's trial and error (just because a card fits the MXM A socket, does not mean it will work for certain).

If i am not mistaken, the laptop is using MXM Type A which is shorter than the mainstream MXM Type B
