Hello fellow geekstogo members.

Sorry if I sound lazy in any way for asking about this. I have looked all over the internet and have found nothing that could explain to me what to get in terms of a graphics card. The best buy kid was just throwing me around here and there (as if he didn't want me to have the best). Even though I have a good background in computers and how to work them and all, I still don't know how computers work (hardware speaking). Anyways I bought a Gateway Laptop and It was advertised as a gaming pc But it cant even run Unreal 3, or even the old Unreal Tournament 2004 @ highest settings. Basically what I wanted to know, is if there is a website that I could be pointed out to, in order to learn more about graphics cards as well as find out which ones are compatible with my SYstem. Also if there is a place that is recomended for shopping for graphics cards.

ps: If anyone knows about this matter maybe you could give me some advice about this topic, thanks in advance

I went to newegg.com and I think I may shop here, but if anyone else has a suggestion that would be nice.

Here are my system specs which I found at the gateway.com page (wow what a surprise lol)

You say you bought a laptop but you've linked to a desktop.
Could you clarify whether you have a laptop or a desktop please?
