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.

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.
