I need to know what graphic card to put in my laptop.


Sep 22, 2009
I have a Toshiba Satellite A65-S1064. I want to be able to play the Sims 3 or at least the Sims 2 on it. I know the graphic card in the laptop currently is not up to par for playing these games. So I need to know what I should get. What is a good graphic card. It doesn't have to be brand new or top of the line, just simply good enough. The RAM in this laptop is insanely high. Triple what it used to be.

Any advice would be fantastic. Thank you!!!

not entirely true, but mostly

there are some laptops that have MXM slots for mobile graphics cards, though doubtful this one has one

google search and try to find that out OP

Exactly what I was going to say.

There's also things like the ViDock that have a desktop GPU in a box that communicates with the laptop via ExpressCard. You'll need the ExpressCard interface, an external monitor (it can't use the laptop LCD) and a boatload of money, because it's expensive. You can also only use mediocre cards because the ExpressCard bus is easily saturated.
Unless it's very important to you.. not worth it.
Edit: Looking at the OP's laptop, that's not even an option because it probably lacks ExpressCard.
