Hey guys I have an HP EliteBook 8440p and I want to be able to play most modern games(Portal 2, Tribes Ascend, etc.) with medium-high settings with a stable 60fps. I'm thinking of buying a graphics card like this or this.
Thanks.

The vast majority of laptops can't be upgraded. Some gaming and workstation class systems have a MXM slot that contains a video card that can be upgraded. This slot does not exist in consumer (regular) laptops.

No, not even low profile ones.

Your system is not up-gradable. What you might be able to do is to put together an eGPU (external GPU). See here:

Your system does have an Express Card Slot:
