Default Laptop Graphics Card

Now I know very little about this stuff so I was hoping I could get some feedback.

My laptop:

Acer Aspire 3003LCI
1.8 GHz

Now what I want is a graphics card (around $100) that will just make my new game, Counter-Strike: Source and other future games run smoother.

Now I don't know if that is the information you need to decide what I can get so ask me if you need more. I have researched for quite awhile and all i have found was PC graphic cards (even if I found notebook cards, I don't think I would know which one to get). Any advice at all would be great.

Help is very much appreciated! THANKS!!!!!

ur graphics chip will be built into your motherboard. hence you cant change it. if you want to play any games you should use a desktop.
AMD x2 5000+ black edition at 3.3GHZ zalman cnps 9700-NT
Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 motherboard
3072mb: OCZ ddr800 gold

You've got a pretty low end laptop to begin with, and as is the case with most (but not ALL) laptops, yours doesn't have upgradeable graphics.
