Hi there. Before I go on about my problem, here's my computer information (hope it is sufficient):
HP Pavilion dv5 1111ea laptop AMD Turion X2 Dual Core mobile RM-72 processor ATI Mobility HD Radeon 3450 graphics card 4GB RAM Vista Home Premium.
Basically I love video games, and since buying the laptop a few months ago I've installed Grand Theft Auto 3 and San Andreas on the machine.
My problem is that I can't play these games to their full ptoential, because they lag when I max out the optimisation settings.
GTA3 plays fine on the highest resolution and draw distance, but lags when I turn off the frame limiter.
San Andreas lags when the resolution is set over 1027x782x32 and the visual effects quality os set to anything other than 'low'.
My question is simply this: What graphics card and/or processor would I need to replace my current one(s) with, that will give me the best performance out of these games (and also newer, more demanding games like GTA 4)?
In other words, what's the best possible graphics card for my laptop?
