Okay, so I have the Asus Eee PC 900HD. I want to run photoshop cs5, but unfortunately there is no OpenGL support. Are there any video cards i can buy to upgrade the current video card? And how would I go about replacing the old video card with a new one?

You cannot replace the video card on most laptops and netbooks - only the higher end ones such as Sager models. You will just have to stick with what you have, or consider buying a better machine.
Hope that helps.

Yeah, sorry. Laptop GPUs usually cannot be upgraded, especially on netbooks which use integrated graphics or ION.

Thanks guys. I appreciate your help. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with this laptop for now. I'm trying to sell it and buy a new laptop however. Any suggestions of laptops that would be good for Photoshop and the like? I also use other video editing programs like Sony Vegas, so any laptops that would be around or under $500 but be good for those 2 tasks?
Thanks again.

For around 500$... I'm not sure. Try finding one with an i3 or i5 processor.
