I am looking at buying a new dell laptop, either the 6000 or 9300. And I was wondering if upgrading the video card from the integrated crap to one of the ATI cards is necessary to 4-table and/or connect a 2nd monitor for 8-tabling? And if so does it matter whether it's the 64mb or 128mb? I won't be doing any hardcore gaming on my machine, so it'll just be poker, poker "aids", and internet/e-mail type stuff.

Thanks for your help...

You will be fine with only 64 megs if thats all your doing.
What kinda resolutions will you be running? Thats whats gonna make or break your performance here.

Well I'd be running the max resolution of 1920x1200 to get 4-tabling without the overlap and if I add a second monitor it would be running at 1600x1200, 1680x1050, or 1920x1200 depending on the model.

Thanks for your help!
