Default Graphics Card

Hey guys,
I know that this was probably posted like 10 million times already, but I just have to know. .

What is the best graphics card for a Dell Inspiron 6000, Intel Celeron M processor 1.60GHz, .99 GB of RAM.

I am looking for something in the $300-$500 range.

Thanks,
-T

U cud save up, sell ur old laptop and buy a newer one with a better gfx chip and core duo cpu, Not sure how much they cost in the US but u can get a nice one for about $900 in the UK.

Haha, thats exactly along the lines that I was thinking. As you can tell from the trade/sell forum, I'm already looking to sell mine. What I'm planning to buy is Sony VAIO® VGN-SZ440 Notebook
