Graphics card for sketchup

You’ll need to fill out your profile a little better. My current laptop has integrated graphics and cannot be changed. I have no slots available for a second graphics card.

If you have a choice, go for a Nvidia card. Ati/AMD cards also seem to work better these days, but their driver support history is somewhat flaky.
