I am assuming that the machine is a Dell 8100 or similar. In general GFx Cards cant be upgraded on laptops. I dont know which is "fastest" as I dont know what you intend to use the machine for. However as far as I know none of them will play the latest games at any reasonable resolution

thanks

I think that you will be in for a disappointment, these cards were "State of the Art" in 2002 and would now expect be out-shone by modern "On-board Graphics"

Probably good enough for Photo manipulation though

I don't think any of them will play any new games.

i understand that they may not work with the latest games but PLEASE can you tell me which one is the best!

If you look through back copies of PCA and PC Pro around March/April 2002 you should find something

Consider these two in this order

Quadro4 700 Go Gl 64mb

ATI Radeon Mobility 9000 64MB

The Quadro is similar to a GeForce 4 4200 which is a faster card than the ATI 9000.

Both are DirectX 8.0 compatible but watch out for the price..the Quadro cards a full on workstation cards and could be a good deal more expensive than the 9000 go.If the price is right the Quadro is the better card.

Dell I cant help you till you tell me what you intend the laptop for. Each card will proform differently at different things. If you give us criteria we can suggest which would give you the best results.
