You don't mention what games you are hoping to play.

You're right, HD3200 graphics is relatively poor for most graphics-intensive (G-I) 3D games - you can view more info at click here - game benchmarks are lower down. If you notice the HD3200 lies low down under Class 3 in the list on the right column. You really need something much higher up the list for G-I 3D games - the higher the better. Your choice will also depend on the game(s) being played, the settings you play them at & your budget.

As you don't have an ExpressCard (EC)
slot, there are only two ways to improve your graphics: buy a laptop with better inbuilt graphics OR one with the EC slot, ViDock & separate graphics card. In short, you'll need to buy a more suitable laptop for gaming. G
