    *waves arms* Nub needs help ugrading!

    Hello all, I just got myself an Inspiron 9100 with a Radeon 9700 mobility . (dell service tag 4760Y51) (type it in this link http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/en/details?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&~tab=2)
    anyways, I thought I was getting a 128mb dedicated ram, but it turns out it was 64mb, (Deligtful, asumbing all I want to play is Solitaire) so I am going to need to upgrade my graphics card. I have been looking into it, and going to a Radeon 9800 mobility card looks really nice, 256mb dedicated ram and 8 pipelines... and I know my motherboard can handle it fine. However
    I have 2 questions.

    1. Is there a better upgrade for me?

    2. Where can I get my hands on the Radeon 9800 mobility card (or better gpu?)
    Newegg.com didn't have the 9800

    Thank you for reading and I hope you can help me.

    beacuse is rally hard now to get radeon 9800 (only used and very often witout warranty service), you should rather think about something like x700pro or x1600

    Would an x1600 mobility work in this laptop? Heck, I would gladly put in an x1800, but I don't even know if that's compatablie.
