Upgrading graphics card. Need top 3 best graphics card for my computer.

I will purchase it within the next two months. I have no budget, just give me the top 3 recommendations please. I will use this for gaming. I want to be able to play any game with my card (highest settings) for the next 2 years or so.

My current GPU is a AMD M880G with ATI mobility Radeon HD 4250.

I have an HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook with an AMD Phenom II P960 and 8 gigabytes of RAM.

I might consider overclocking it. I prefer NVIDIA cards and I might consider SLI. My monitor's resolution is 1366X768.

Thanks for any and all help!

    You can't really upgrade the GPU of a laptop. Laptop parts are chosen very specifically due to space and energy constraints.

    This is your only option:

  3. P.S. If you could find a way to buy one AND verify that your machine is compatible with an upgrade, this is the only card you should consider: http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-780M.88993.0.html

    I think you're confused, first you want to upgrade your mGPU and then go SLI. Then you want to OC. This is by no means impossible for most laptops. Beside just build a decent desktop and it will out perform most gaming laptop at twice its price. Considering you want to get the Top 3 mobile GPU, which is likely a GTX780M or HD 8970M which is really expensive and you could make a gaming computer out of the single GTX780M alone.
