    Ok so im a complete idiot when it comes to buying computer parts.

    im looking to buy a new graphics card for my laptop.

    the specs are :

    Operating System: Windows 8.1 64-bit (6.3, Build 9600) (9600.winblue_gdr.131030-1505)
    Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
    System Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
    System Model: Satellite C855D
    BIOS: 6.20
    Processor: n/a
    Memory: 16384MB RAM
    Available OS Memory: 15966MB RAM
    Page File: 2824MB used, 15573MB available
    Windows Dir: C:\WINDOWS
    DirectX Version: DirectX 11
    DX Setup Parameters: Not found
    User DPI Setting: Using System DPI
    System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent)
    DWM DPI Scaling: Disabled
    DxDiag Version: 6.03.9600.16384 64bit Unicode

    Card name: AMD Radeon HD 6300 series Graphics
    Manufacturer: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
    Chip type: AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics (0x9802)
    DAC type: Internal DAC(400MHz)
    Device Type: Full Device
    Display Memory: 8174 MB
    Dedicated Memory: 366 MB
    Shared Memory: 7808 MB
    Current Mode: 1366 x 768 (32 bit) (60Hz)

    Now i dont know what you need of that because i pulled it straight from DXDIAG.

    what i want to know is:
    • what is the next step ( or few steps) up from the graphics card i have now?
    • will it be able to run games faster (Minecraft, Garry's mod, Just cause 2, etc.)

    i would like it if the price did not go over 150 if possible


    (im sorry admins if this is not where im supposed to post this)

    I assume this is a laptop.
    Which means it is unlikely you can upgrade the graphics card.
