What part of my computer do I need to upgrade for DX:HR?

I have Deus Ex: Human Revolution installed via Steam. It runs perfectly... at 800x600. Any higher and it gets choppy. I can run higher resolutions with the lighting effects turned off. Does that mean I can make it better with a new graphics card, with more shading units or whatever you call it? Or is my old-ass Athlon X2 CPU more to blame? [more inside]

A good-graphics lappy that's cheap but not crappy?

Help set me up: I am looking to buy my son a laptop. An inexpensive laptop. It should have a strong enough graphics card to run, say, MineCraft and other games/video smoothly; should have a webcam. Otherwise, it will be used for general schoolwork and internetting, and maybe some light music recording. Screen size is not important, so small displays are OK. So: new or used? Or buy a cheap one and upgrade the graphics card? What specs should I aim for? Any sources/sites that are better for finding good deals? I am wishing to find something for $200--am I wishing too hard? Thanks!!
