Does anyone know a good video card that I can run in my TiBook 667. SimCity 4 is going to require 32 MB of VRAM and I only have 16MB. I really want to play the game but I don't think it would run well. I've looked at the Radeon 7000 DDR 32MB. Anyone used that?

The graphics chip in your tibook is soldered on. There's no way to replace it. That Radeon 7000 will NOT work in your TiBook. Think about it, where would you put it?

Sadly, when it comes to Mobile computers, graphics cards are not replacable like they are in desktops. In order to save space, they have to eliminate the ability for expandablilty. Sorry for the luck, but that is the case with computers. One day you have top of the line, and the next, you have the 3rd rate computer.
