The laptop screen does not flicker. But the graphics card does not have its own memory, it uses the system ram, which is 2gb. If i got usb to dvi with an external card, would it run any faster and be able to handle itself?
That is a possibility. But you have to watch out for the resolution it supports. As an example, this one
supports only a max. of 1600x1200. For 1920x1080 you may have to spend a bit of money. You have to ask yourself whether that is worth it.
PS: I just found this info regarding your 6150. Make a test with 1600x1200 or less (if you have the 430 model).
Single-Link DVI Support
Able to drive flat-panel displays up to and including 1600x1200.
Feature only available for GeForce 6150/nForce 430.
