hey guys, just wondering if there are any good laptop video cards out there for cheap. i tried searching here and on bestbuy, but came up with nothing. Will any graphics card work or do i need one specifically for my laptop? any ideas are much appreciated. Thanks

actually.. I have a Gateway M-6862... and the Gateway support website says that it has this as the video specs...ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 2600 XT PCI Express Graphics
that would mean you can upgrade it because it's not integrated, however, it's proven to be almost impossible to find any sort of card i can put in it. Go here..
and search for your laptop and see what it says for your laptop.
