External Graphics Card for Laptop

Specs: Windows XP, Penium 4 256 RAM

I have a Toshiba 2100 satellite laptop and am wondering if there is such a thing as an external graphics card for my computer?

I'm asking because I'm moving to England for a year and am a big fan of the Sims 2. However, it won't run on my computer due to the type card.

Lol. a USB video card. Imagine how hard that would suck.

Drag around a "My Computer" window at a resolution above 800x600 and you can see the poor external video card re-drawing the window as you drag it around.

Kinda like on those old ISA cards. :)

There are external video cards which have come out in the last two months.

These are primarily for multi-monitor use for laptops. Basically usb2.0 interface to multiple monitors.

one that has been around for some time is the sidecar pcmia card - http://www.digitaltigers.com/sidecar.shtml

check it out.

btw If you really want something for ur pc..no matter how uncommon...u can find it, u just have to know where to look.
