Re: upgrade graphic card
Hi, on the game packing there should be a requirement list. Open your computer case, remove the graphics card, take it to a dealer and ask for a higher rated card of the same configuration, [AGP or PCIE] This is a simple job to change the card but be careful of static electricity, earth yourself to the case if you can.

Unfortunately, laptops are generally locked down in terms of graphics cards. The GPU is integrated into the laptop mainboard due to space constraints.
Your only option if tied down to a laptop for any reason would be to purchase a more recent laptop with a specific graphics card in it.
Any discrete (NVIDIA or ATI) graphics card that was manufactured after 2008 should be sufficient to run most games.
If you're looking to play games on more intense graphic settings, your best bet would be to look for laptops with the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M/240M or better, or the ATI Mobility Radeon 4600/5400 or better. Either brand with at least 512 MB of video RAM will work well.
firstly you need to have a pci express graphics card inorder to play new games. Intel chipsets are NOT for playing games!! You should get at least a Nvidia 8600gts or ati 3650 or similar to game properly- presuming that you have a pci express slot. Be warned that if you get a new graphics card dont go by the series eg, 8 series or 9 series- a 8600gts is better than a 9400gt. A nice graphics card for the money is the nvidia 9600gt. Good luck upgrading
If you have a laptop, sadly this cannot be helped. You simply have a discreet graphics card that is not meant for gaming.
If you have a desktop PC, then you can upgrade the graphics. Look at which slot you have (AGP, PCI, or PCI-E) and choose a graphic card accordingly. If it's nVidia, take a card with a number above 8000. If it's Ati, a number above 2000.
Sorry but most laptops come with video on board and not a separate video card to upgrade to another card while not impossible would be very expansive. you would have to get a desktop computer with separate video card installed to play your games please post rating thanks
