I got a mobile XP And the 5700 is about the same as the 9600 it seems...barely less comparable even in a 64bit system with dual channel XMS memory compared to my 512mb value ram, but I was running 2.6GHz at the time too. The 5700 Ultra has 900 memory speed compared to my normal 5700 is 500 and like 570 at the most OC

cooleddy4 - but the graphics card i want to replace is a SIS 651GX 3D, which i think is onboard?
BTW, what do you mean you think it's an onboard card? It's not that hard to tell. Let me point out how to be sure:

1. Look at the connector your monitor cable plugs into on your PC.
2. If connector is part of the motherboard, then it's onboard.
3. If connector is not part of the motherboard and is instead on a seperate card, then your graphics card is NOT an onboard graphics card.

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
