Graphics Card for Acer Aspire 5749 I3-2350 Laptop

Hi, I thinking about buying the above laptop so that I can run my Microsoft Train Simulator away from home and need a graphics card similar to the one that is in my home computer. This is fitted with a 1GB AMD Sapphire HD 6570 PCI-E card and I'm happy with its performance. Can you advise me what I should get fitted if I go ahead and buy this Laptop Computer

Thanks Bob

You cannot change Graphics card for the above Laptop, as its part of the motherboard or cpu. and the laptop does not have a PCI Express card slot to fit external card in

Hi Woodchip, thanks for your reply, I only listed my main computer's graphics card to show what it needed to run MSTS. I have never owned a Laptop before so know nothing about them and this is the reason for my question. All I can do is ask in my normal computer shop tomorrow and see what they would advise me to use.

Cheers Bob

As woodchip says, you have no choice over graphics chip as it's integrated.
