Could someone help me out with the difference between graphic cards? I am looking for a new computer and I have software that says it needs an "OpenGL 2.0 or compatible grapics card". The system I am looking at has a Mobile Intel® GL40 card. Are these the same or is one better than the other? Thanks!

The Mobile Intel GL40 is an onboard graphics chipset and not a dedicated graphics card. It simply can't be compared to the latter.

Can you please tell us what kind of expansion slot your PC has? Or simply post the system specifications here.
Don't forget to mention your budget for the new card.
