I am getting a laptop soon and would like to buy a good graphics card for it. Can anyone recommend one for upto £150 and where to get it from because i cant seem to find anywhere online to buy graphics cards for laptops.

The graphics card is usually integral to the motherboard in laptops.

Check the spec, and choose the best you can afford.

There is no space/sockets for such things in laptops, so also choose the best display spec you can.

All the best.

Laptop graphics cards are built on to the motherboard and can't be upgraded in the same way as desktop machines so you'll need to buy a laptop that has decent graphics card in the first place.

apparently some of the newest laptops being realeased will have this capability I think these will be laptops based around the PCI-express graphics cards.

So my advice to you is do your research and buy the best laptop you can afford.
