Our laptop has a PCI-E slot available and I would like to upgrade the integrated video with a better video card. I installed an NVDIA geForce 9500 in our desktop and noted that, with the fan, it is quite thick. I don't think one would fit in this relatively slim laptop.
What are your suggestions for a video card? Is one even available?
Looking at the specs for the Toshiba Satellite A215-S4697, I don't see anything under Expandability that states you have and available PCI-E slot. Are you sure your not confusing PCI-Express with Expresscard?
