Hate to break the news to you, but if your laptop wasn't a gaming laptop going in, then there is no such thing as a graphics card for it.

I have read of external graphics adapters, but they'd most likely be expensive and they'd probably require the use of an external monitor as well.

You have a laptop? The answer is no. A budget laptop, or one you say is not a bonafide gaming laptop, will not have the ability to add a card to it. the add on cards, like in my signature, for example, are for desktop pcs.
