Default Graphics Card help

I was planning on getting a Toshiba satelite laptop at bestbuy and a NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT OC. Do i need a certain card for my laptop? Because i want it to play games at least up to gta4 or f3.

This may seem a little obvious but you need a graphic card that will fit into your laptop. I'm not sure if a 9600 GT will do this. I have a a 9600 GT and I like it but I also have a desktop with a big case.

They are usually card models with names like 9600M, for mobile. Most of the time they come built in the laptop already. Make sure you can buy and add one to your Toshiba first.

The Freak is correct. The laptop version is the 9600M GT. Here's the website, http://www.nvidia.com/object/product...00m_gt_us.html.

You cannot buy an aftermarket graphics card for a Toshiba laptop. They have an integrated graphics chip built into the motherboard. If you want to have a chance to play any games on a laptop, look for one that has at least a 9600M GT or better.
