Default Video Card Solutions

I'm looking for either a PCMICA or mini-PCI Graphics Card. Can anybody help me out?

Well which one are you looking for, because PCMCIA is associated with laptops, and mini-PCI is associated with computers..

Mini PCI is an extension for Laptops, not for PC.


This is a mini PCI card. There's a slot at the bottom of the laptop for that.


However, I don't think that there is a miniPCI video card. I think that What you have is what you're stuck with. But, no fear. I think newer laptops will eventually have a dedicated multip GPU port. Like a PCI-E x16, but for laptops.

See, my problem is I have an AGP bus with a video codec driver, I don't think I actually have a video "card", and the video memory is so small I have trouble running any video benchmark (PC Wizard ran it at 5 FPS). Is there a relatively standard form factor laptop MOBO, or am I stuck with this one?
