I have a a 2010 HP HDX X18T-1200 CTO Premium Notebook PC and I would like to upgrade the video card to it. What are compatible video cards. I prefer the Asus type video cards as they have always been the best running for me. the current one is GT 130M which is class 4? i think? I know I'm looking at getting a version that is not 3D since the screen isnt prob setup for it but I need a bit more strength for the current games out there. I get what I could describe as a scramble in the upper left hand corner sometimes.

I have had several of the HDX18 machines and have become vary familier with them. You can't upgrade the video card, it's soldered right onto the mother board and you simply can't upgrade it.
The GT 130 was the best one the HDX had and that's it.
Time to get a proper gaming machine and many of them are designed to upgarde the video card.
I have put in a MoBo form a dv8, but then you're still only get the GT 230M, not much improvemnt...
If you can use a desk top it's way more practicle for gaming.
