  1. Just so you know, laptop's are pretty bad at gaming, even if you get a high end one, a comparable desktop will stomp it.

    If you are updating the CPU, you will probably need a new motherboard anyways, so any gpu will fit in the PCIe slot. A budget would help also.
  2. yup!i know it..but,my dell laptop is enough for me.i am happy when using it..so,any ideas?can i fit ddr3 or ddr5 gpu to my old mobo?i will appreciate it very2 much..by the way!thanks for quick reply!
  3. If you want to change your CPU with a newer one, you'll need a new mobo with the right socket. Also it has to be able to fit the new graphics card that you'll be getting. And you'll need a PSU powerful enough to support those new components. Also, 2 gigs of ram is just not enough these days...

    That's a new system right there.

    Anyway, for a GPU I'd recommend 6870 or gtx 560ti, depending on your personal preference.
