    USB Video Cards? (for gaming)

    My machine with the most powerful processer is my laptop (Toshiba Satellite a25-s3072). It's a p4 3.05. But the video is horrible. I can not play any 3d games. I'm not much of a gamer but I really want to try out this Halo 2 game. Any suggestions?

    No such luck. They don't exist.

    OK. Well I have some other options. I have a p4 1.5 w/ 513 RDRAM 800. It's actually a Dell Demension 8100. What video graphics card would be recommended for a moderate/newbie gamer? Around $100? Like I said I want to be able to play newer games.

    Any here? http://www.compgeeks.com/products.asp?cat=VCD
