Post What's better than a ATI mobility Radeon HD 4250, which can run New Vegas at a medium graphics setting?

My copy of runs fairly laggily, unless windowed and at a low graphics setting.
I would like to know what (cheap enough) graphics card can run games with a decent framerate.
Thanks,
Mango

Are you talking about a laptop or desktop, the ATI mobility Radeon HD 4250 is onboard graphics for laptops, which can't be upgraded with a better graphics card.

Laptop. So there is no better one for laptops? Or could I take it, by dismantling the thing?

You can't upgrade the graphics on most laptops. You have to buy a whole new laptop if you want something with better graphics.

yes but they're upwards of $400 so at that point you're better off getting a new computer.
