    Video Card Upgrade on my HP nx9420

    Iv'e looked all over for the answer to this question. I have a HP/Compaq nx9420 and it has a removable video card. I know its pci-e but I dont know what video cards I can buy for it that will surely work.

    It currently has an ATI Mobility Radeon x1600 (256MB), It is a great video card for 256 it plays high end games like GTA:4 and Silent Hunter 5. But I want to improve a bit on it, I would like to buy a ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650 . They are fairly cheap on ebay. Is there anyone that can answer if this video card will work with my laptop

    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 DDR3 1Gb MXM Type A - eBay (item 120684007349 end time Feb-15-11 05:31:30 PST)

    This is actually a 1gb but for a good price. Thanks in advance.

    Wow you may be one of the only ppl that have posted this question that have actually done some homework. From what I see from looking around you are correct you do have an MXM slot. From what I see it looks like its MXM III and AFAIK would not work with the MXM A cards which are a newer standard.

    Here's a good site with visuals. It might be type II or type III but AFAIK it doesn't matter as version 3.0 Type A-B aren't backwards compatible.

    Thanks that was a lot of useful info. Now I am realizing how hard it is to shop for a decent priced TYPE III MXM 512MB Card

    Yeah laptop gpu's are pretty pricey. Mainly because there are so few made that can actually be changed.
