New Graphic's card

Hey, I just got my new computer a few months ago, and decided I wanted to upgrade my graphics card, so basicly im not sure if I have a PSI... i updated my specs and what not.
Basicly my range is 80-100$USD.

An XFX HD-667X would fit in that budget. The PSU requirement is 400W

If this computer is the one listed in your specs, you're not upgrading the video card as it is a laptop. First of all it isn't like you can just go to any computer store or online shop and buy one as they are very rarely (if ever) sold at retail. Second the motherboard would have to have a slot on it to put the card in (and they are completely different from desktop cards. Third the thermal properties of the laptop were made with the components that it came with, you would also have to figure out a way of keeping a new card (and the entire laptop for that matter) cool due to the extra heat that a card would add over the video that is built into the CPU.

Unfortunately with a laptop you are severely limited in what you can upgrade in them, the hard drive and ram is about it.

IMO, that is one of the best cards you will get in that budget, but if you can shell out some more money then try to get your hands on the higher 6770 HD Asus/XFX/MSI.

YBL.

As Stormy13 wrote, it's a laptop. Right? What's the model? Google suggests an Inspiron N5110.

There are a few laptops with discrete graphics. The non-proprietary standard is MXM (mobile PCI-Express module). You won't find those at Best Buy, or even Newegg. (eBay, maybe, probably removed from dead laptops.) I believe that some laptops use proprietary discrete graphics cards.

Neither of the above applies to you. If you want better graphics, you'll need a better laptop.

Sorry.

Are these the same thing? I have an old Dell (as you can see), but I like it. I was told that I could improve its performance by adding a video card. When I look them up, I see pictures of odd-looking devices that in no way resemble a "card." I can only find 2 that will work with this computer....
