intel chipsets+games = forget it
if it was a nvidia or intel onboard gfx you would had more chances, 128mb must be from the laptop ram, not dedicated
i could be wrong tho

I agree with pt. Just rig some fans on that bad boy. Run open case if you have to.

For $20, I'd say you can find something that actually goes on the card over at newegg.com

I'll look and edit if I find something.
