Hello forum'ers.

I am kinda looking for a new graphics card and as a noob in this part I don't know what I have to look for or what defines how strong a graphics card is. My pc is a Medion Akoya, model E6226 (notebook PC). I currently have Intel® HD Graphics 3000(Is this the graphics card? if not then it's Intel I3), I want a card that is strong enough to run games like Borderlands 2, and good enough to smoothly run WoT. I don't know if I can get a card that is that strong with a max budget of €100,- I have seen quite cheap graphic cards on Polish websites.

Thanks in advance.

Getting graphic cards for notebooks is hard, getting one that fits the motherboard (if it is even possible to fit one on) of your Medion is even harder.
You got a low-end notebook not designed for gaming with hardly no upgrade possibilities.

Ah, that sounds bad.

Sorry, but that Medion notebook cannot be upgraded with a different videocard. The Intel videochip is integrated in the CPU and there is no space to add a second videocard.

I hope you didn't buy it as a gaming notebook. It's sold as a multimedia notebook and that's about all it can do sufficiently.

CPU, RAM and videochip are all low performance models. Not much you can do, it has more bottlenecks for gaming than you might think.
