Inspiron 8100 Video Question

    I have an Inspiron 8100 with an ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 (64meg) video
    card. Last night the video started acting flaky (distorted / random
    lines in the video display, etc.). I've narrowed the problem down to a
    bad video card and plan on replacing the card myself.

    I've saw a new 7500 ATI 64meg Mobility Radeon card on EBay for $80. The
    description states it is a new card for an Inspiron 5100. My question is
    - will the ATI card for a 5100 fit into a 8100??

    BTW, if anyone has another source of video cards for the 8100 besides
    EBay let me know.

    Thanks in advance,
