If you have $200 USD get a GTX 460 1gb no questions asked. I bought one for my recent build and it handles the game on all ultra settings, with avg fps being 60+. And I play with EIGHT players at once. It's an amazing card.

OH HELL YES. Right now you're running on integrated graphics, which are horrible. (I feel your pain because my old laptop was using integrated graphics)

You're FPS and graphics will sky rocket with that card.

Oh, I was under the impression you had a desktop. In that case you're right it's soldered on your motherboard and you won't be able to upgrade. Sorry man.

The only way to upgrade a laptop is to buy a new one...

*Expect for high end gaming laptops... but we know you don't have that or you would not have any problems playing SC2*

There is a reason most people prefer desktops...

We can upgrade them for alot cheaper then buying a whole new one.. :bounce:

ya i agree but its hard to lug a desktop to college lol
October 10, 2010 8:23:30 AM

You can't leave it in your dorm room? Or where ever you sleep?

And just have laptop for class?

I guess money upfront would be an issue.. but it would cost less then a new laptop =P
