Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I just purchased an Acer Aspire X1300 desktop computer. I was wondering what would be a good graphics card to buy for it?


Answers :

If you are a gamer, look up the system requirements at the game review or distributor's sites of the games you want to play. Don't get the minimum recommended video card, but buy the recommended or optimum card for the game. Usually newer nVidia or ATI cards are safe bets for a couple of years. Be sure to know what type of interface (plug-in slot) your computer has for the graphics card, PCIe, AGP, or the older PCI. Epinions.com is a good spot to check reviews and prices. Gamer forums often have advice, too.
Hi. I would personally recommend the Palit 9800GT sonic or other equivalent video cards with great graphics capabilities and excellent cooling technologies but not too expensive. It all depends basically on your budget and application requirements. If you're a heavy gamer, better buy the higher (and more expensive) graphics card but if you're just an average user (office productivity software user, internet surfer), the built-in video card of your Acer Aspire X1300 desktop is enough.
