My computer is pavilion dv6 notebook. My video card is literally sticked to my motherboard and the card isn't working so I have decided to buy a new video card. my question is should I sell my motherboard with the card and buy a new motherboard and card or buy a new card and somehow connect it to my NOTEBOOK using a special cable? my budged is ~150$ maximum 200$ (not including an adapter).

And if so could you find me the best graphics card that I can buy? Note: I will have to use an adapter and connect it to my notebook using a cable as I dont have space for the actual video card

You can not upgrade the video card in a notebook. You can not adapt a desktop video card to a laptop. In the past Alienware made laptops that had upgradeable video cards, but those were specific to Alienware and a little on the expensive side compared with a desktop card.

 

You are stuck with the video hardware in your laptop.
