what to do about girlfriends laptop for gaming


the laptop she has is a toshiba satellite A205 s5847

also here is the info from dxdiag (pics below)





I have upgraded her graphics drivers, and chipset.

Just wondering if there is anything else I can try to do so she can play alien swarm, half life 2, doom3. I will most likely just give her my old gaming rig soon. amd64 single core, 9800 pro. I know that will play doom3 and hl2.

Thanks for any ideas.

You're stuck with onboard graphics....either get a new rig/laptop or hope the service "onlive" becomes available soon!
