  1. Hi,

    Im looking to buy a new graphics card for my laptop but I am unsure what graphics cards are compatible with my motherboard model.

    Could someone please enlighten me as to what type of graphics card would be best suited to my motherboard, my budget is around $300 but i would be willing to spend more if required.

    My laptop model is a Hewlett Packard Pavilion ZV5200

    Other information.
    Athlon 3000+
    1024 DDR RAM
    Nvidia GeForce4 420 Go

    Thanks in advance.

    I think we have had at least half a dozen of this same thread already. Please! Don't think that you are somehow original! With 99% probability someone has asked your question before and you can find the answer by using the amazing "search" feature.

    As a rule you cannot replace the graphics on laptops. Only some very special models have replaceable cards or PCI(-E) slots. Some docking stations have PCI(-E) slots too. I really doubt that your consumer laptop fits into any of these categories.
