Hi I own a acerx3950, running w7 ultimate. I need advice with the possibilty of replacing the onboard graphics(intelHD). My acer has a i5 cpu with 8gb ddr3 memory. The problem i think may be the the PSU which is only 220W also the acer is low profile.

If possible could you advise a card or is the on board graphics OK. The computer is mainly used as a htpc.

Thanks Dan [email protected]

If you mainly use the PC as an HTPC then why do you feel the need to upgrade the graphics card?

Could you post a link to your PC?

If your only going to be using it as a HTPC then a graphics card is not necessary and on-board graphics is fine.
