you can't put graphics cards into a notebook i'm afraid. they're for desktop pc's only.

Finding laptop components is very hard. And after you find it, you have to install it = even harder.
Get a desktop, they're much better for gaming than laptops, and if you sit at home playing on your laptop anyway, you have nothing to worry about.
Desktops are much easier to upgrade, find parts for and customize.

I've never played Starcraft 2 but one of my friends can play it fine at maximum graphical settings on a GTX 460. I don't know if it helps, but I'm just going to say it encase it does.

according to Computer Games on Laptop Graphic Cards - Notebookcheck.net Tech .. the 8200M is pretty horrible for games. I can attest to that, I have an onboard GF8200 on my PC, and it sucked .. so I'd imagine the 8200M would be as bad or worse.

edit: just saw that the 8200M in that link, SC2 is RED on all settings.
