Please Recommend a Laptop Video Card for Gaming


New Member
I am interested in updating my video card that will support current video games such as Halo 2, Crysis and so on. Based on my current system, I don't know what would be a compatible card that would not take alot alot of money to give my video card a boast.

My laptops current system is:

Gateway T-1625
Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit
AMD Turion 64 x2 dual core mobile technology TL-60 2.00 ghz
ATI Radeon x1200 series
4 gig ram
320 hard drive
HDMI out

Let me start off with I'm not sure if you're looking to buy a laptop or upgrade the graphics card. If you're wanting a laptop then I may be able to help.

I work at Best Buy so I don't usually search around the internet too much for laptops, but for the best gaming laptop I would recommend almost any of the ASUS products.

If you can stand to wait I would wait until they have any of these three on sale (If it's $200 off original price that's the cheapest you'll get it):
Asus - Laptop with Intel® Centrino® Processor Technology - Black/Coppery Gold - X83Vb-X1
Asus - Laptop with Intel® Centrino® 2 Processor Technology - Espresso Brown/Khaki - X83Vm-X1
Asus - Laptop with Intel® Centrino® 2 Processor Technology - Black - G50Vt-X1

Just my opinion

If you are looking to upgrade your laptops video card... Forget it. In most situations it cant be done and in the rare instances that it can, its not worth the money.

If you want to be able to game better buy a new laptop or desktop.

Also, I have the x83vb1... It has a 9300m which is alright, not the best for gaming IMO, and definantly won't run Crysis well at all.

The x83vm1 has a 9600gt which is better.
