Dell insprion graphics? Pci

I have my dell insprion 1545 latpop and its not all that bad, the only bad thing is the 64mb intel garphics that sucks! I have a pci express slot and i was wondering if there is a mini graphics card that i could use to boost the grphics performance a little bit. I heard there was a mini ATI card...Will this work? and is this true?

  1. yes and no - there's a new product that's on the verge of being release for purchase that essentially allows you to connect an external video card to any device

    but I wouldn't hold my breath for it

    I suggest you buy a new laptop with better GPU specs so it doesn't become obsolete in 3 years

    I myself have an XPS M1530 that I bought in 2007 and it's still going strong
  2. Thnx, ill look into that! Mine is from 2009 an is still strong as well but i didnt buy it so thats why it wasnt great for the gaming and stuff. Thanks for responding though!
  3. Wait, a pci-express slot? Do you mean like, an actual PCI-E slot IN your laptop and/or your laptop's dock?

    Or do you mean that you have that mini pci-e slot on the side of your laptop?

    I have one on the side of my laptop... i have a dell inspiron 1545 with win 7
  5. ITS AN EXPRESSCARD 34 SLOT
  6. I have an external graphics card on my dell from Vidock.

    I'd recommend it if you really need it although the price/performance is very low, it works great with a laptop.

    Thanks, ill look into it! So does the Vidock just kindof an adapter to place the graphics card into or is the vidock the actual graphics card itself?

    That's not a vidock, that's a vision tech regular graphics card.
    You'd need to buy it here: http://www.villageinstruments.com/tiki-index.php?page=Store
    And then buy an external graphcis card. I bought the 4 and the 5770 back in the day for a total of 450 dollars I think, although it is probably cheaper with the 3 and like a 6670/7750 low profile card.
